Healthy Outcomes for Children
The Liverpool Healthy Schools is a thriving and successful team
committed to working with schools to raise standards through the provision of health and wellbeing.

The team brings together a group of enthusiastic professionals with a wealth of experience in this area. High quality support and training are provided for teachers to enable them to be outstanding in their practice.

The Healthy Schools Team is proud to work with our partners in the NHS, and other health and education professionals to provide high quality support and training for teachers, school leaders and learning support assistants.

Developing an emotionally healthy school in which all pupils have the necessary skills to thrive has implications for every aspect of school life.

Research shows that the piecemeal adoption of strategies, important as each of them might be, is less effective in terms of the impact on pupils and staff than a whole school approach and less sustainable over the longer term.

We believe that the collaboration with schools will provide a number of rewards for schools, such as health outcomes for their pupils and therefore a greater level of attainment - a view that is shared by Public Health England in their publication 'The link between pupil health & wellbeing and attainment.'
