We would like to take this opportunity to reassure you that Healthy Schools is still an active project as the Coalition Government is committed to improving the health of children and young people.
As from April 2011, Healthy Schools has been reviewed to be less bureaucratic in line with Government policy. The emphasis now is on the process being schools-led, with local support, quality assurance and recognition. Please look under latest news for further details – this is also where you will find PDL News and the HPDW Briefing Sheet.
