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:
- Personal, Social and Health and Economics Education (PSHE) & RSE ( Relationships and Sex Education)
- Emotional health and wellbeing
- Healthy eating
- Physical activity
- Pupil voice
- Parents, carers and community
