Healthy Schools

Welcome to Buckinghamshire Healthy Schools. This zone is maintained by the Public Health team and provides valuable information about critical areas of health and wellbeing for teachers and staff working with children and young people. Please see the tabs above for the latest guidance, resources, signposts to services, and to register for the Buckinghamshire Healthy Schools Award.

Public Health is the science and practice of preventing disease and ill health and prolonging and promoting good health and wellbeing. We used to be part of the NHS, but we have now become part of Buckinghamshire Council while still retaining our close links with the NHS.

Promoting the health and wellbeing of children and young people is extremely important in order to provide them with a good start in life, equipping them with the knowledge, skills, and resilience they need to flourish.

Healthy children have been shown to be more likely to achieve well academically, behave better in the classroom, and have greater success in their careers and personal life.

Information on these pages has been put together in direct response to the request from schools for more coordinated and concise health information to support school activities. This will assist you with delivering high-quality PSHE, (including statutory Health Education), and supports the completion of the Buckinghamshire Healthy Schools Award. We hope you find it helpful and look forward to receiving your feedback.

Please email for further information and support.
