To achieve the National Healthy School Status schools are required to meet a range of criteria in four themes. These are: Personal Social and Health Education, Healthy Eating, Physical Activity and Emotional Health and Well-being (including bullying).
These criteria relate not only to the taught curriculum but also to the emotional, physical and learning environment that the school provides.
