A Whole-School approach to Health and Wellbeing

Every school recognises the importance of teaching and developing skills to improve the health and wellbeing of pupils now and in adulthood. These skills include learning and regularly engaging in physical activities, understanding healthy foods and healthy lifestyle choices, building healthy relationships and managing their emotional development.

To support each school to embed these skills and meet the learning outcomes set out by the national curriculum, Amaven has created a comprehensive Healthy Schools Programme.

It enables schools to deliver a complete health and wellbeing agenda via cross-links to core components of the national curriculum and PSHE topics.

[Our] teachers now feel more confident in improving pupils' fundamental movement skills. The challenge days, which have been enjoyable, as well as the assessment reports, have helped teachers to plan effectively to meet the needs of all pupils. We now have a clear vision going forward.
