Healthy Schools

Highfields Primary School is Committed to Being a Healthy School

The Essex Healthy Schools Programme is a school health improvement strategy which builds on the commitment within Essex schools to better the health and wellbeing of children and young people.

A healthy school seeks to provide a healthy environment that engages all – children & young people, staff, parents/carers and the wider community through a whole school approach.

The whole school approach is an extremely effective, evidence-based school improvement mechanism that brings about and embeds cultural change in schools.

Core themes in our work include:

  1. Personal, Social and Health and Economics Education (PSHE) & RSE ( Relationships and Sex Education) 
  2. Emotional health and wellbeing
  3. Healthy eating
  4. Physical activity
  5. Pupil voice
  6. Parents, carers and community
