Schools tell us that the National Healthy Schools Programme has brought sustained improvement in behaviour, standards of work and school management. Overview The impact of our programme is based on a Whole School Approach to physical and emotional health and wellbeing focused on four core themes: The Whole School Approach involves working with children, young people, parents/carers, staff and governors to provide a solid foundation from which developments and improvement are embedded in a systematic way.
