Healthy School

Prestolee is recognised as a ‘Healthy School’. This means that we promote the health and wellbeing of our pupils and staff through a well-planned, taught curriculum in a physical and emotional environment that promotes learning and healthy lifestyle choices.

What is a ‘Healthy School’?

Schools awarded National Healthy School status means they have met the criteria in four core themes. These criteria relate not only to the taught curriculum but also to the emotional, physical and learning environment provided by the school.

  • personal, social and health education including sex and relationship education and drug education (including alcohol, tobacco and volatile substance abuse);
  • healthy eating;
  • physical activity; and
  • emotional health and wellbeing (including bullying).

In order to maintain our Healthy School status, we revalidate it every two years by completing a Health and Wellbeing Review.  This is followed by the Healthy Schools Plus process – the award we are currently working towards. It is about showing what difference our healthy schools work makes to:

  • the whole school
  • the  perceptions of key groups
  • an identified "at risk" group

Our school focus in our Healthy Schools + Award is physical activity and healthy weight.
