Improving the health of children in Bristol
Bristol Healthy Schools provides support for all Bristol schools and education settings to improve the health and wellbeing of pupils, staff and families.
We provide information, teaching resources and advice. We also run the Healthy Schools award scheme.
What our programme is
The Healthy Schools programme is a nationally recognised programme that supports the core aim of Public Health England Go to https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/public-health-england (opens new window) to protect and improve the nation's health and wellbeing.
Note: Some changes have been made to the structure of the awards programme. It is now a two-tiered model, and has reduced focus on PSHE due to the new statutory guidance on RSE.
Schools play an important role in helping children, staff, families and the wider community live a healthy life.

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:
