The C&P Healthy Schools Support Programme celebrates and supports the work schools undertake to help children and young people to be healthy, happy and achieve.
Schools play a vital role in helping children and young people to lead healthy lifestyles, helping them to develop and strengthen resilience to deal with adversity and stress, developing and reinforcing healthy habits and helping them with role modelling and testing healthy behaviours. The benefits of working on a whole school basis to develop and improve health and resilience go beyond health. We know that when children and young people are resilient, healthy and happy at school, they can also achieve more.
Our local schools across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough are already doing excellent work to support health, wellbeing, and resilience. By providing access to guidance, resources, practical advice and targeted planning support this work can be enhanced through the C&P Healthy Schools Support Programme. Our team can also help school communities by facilitating access to quality assured support services that can be delivered directly in schools.
