We encourage all our schools to work towards the Guernsey Healthy Schools Award. This is based on the national scheme designed to support and strengthen a school's personal, social and health education (PSHCE) programme.

Involvement in the Scheme promotes health in its widest sense, which includes the emotional and physical wellbeing of all pupils and staff of the school, as well as the community of which the school forms a part.

The Healthy Schools programme has focus areas; Physical Activity, Healthy Eating, PSHCE and Emotional Health and Well Being and covers issues such as drug education, citizenship, sex and relationships, diet and nutrition and how to tackle bullying. Schools provide evidence of achieving 21 criteria to gain the Level 1 Award and then are encouraged to go on and achieve the Enhanced Award.

The aims of the programme are

A Healthy School promotes the health and well being of its pupils and staff through well-planned, taught curriculum in a physical and emotional environment that promotes learning and healthy lifestyle choices.

The scheme is supported by our PSHCE Advisor and the Health Promotion Unit.
