How Bristol Healthy Schools can help your school

Schools help children be active through sports and other activities, teach them about health and wellbeing through the curriculum, and provide healthy lunches.

By getting involved with our programme, your school can:

  • improve pupil health and wellbeing
  • improve results because happy, healthy children do better in school
  • get access to the most up to date advice, guidance and resources around health and well being 

This will help Bristol children and young people to develop into healthy, happy adults who understand how to have a healthy lifestyle.
