Since the Tri-borough Healthy Schools Partnership was launched in October 2012 over 80 schools across the three boroughs of Hammersmith and Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster have signed up.
The main aim of the Healthy Schools Partnership is to support and encourage schools to develop and deepen their focus on health and wellbeing which will support the attainment, achievement and happiness of both their pupils, staff and wider school communities.
The Healthy Schools Partnership is an alliance of local authority and health services together with a range of other agencies that work with schools and most importantly schools.
Healthier children do better in learning and in life. By enabling children and young people to make positive changes to their behaviour regarding health and wellbeing, schools help them reach their full potential in terms of achievement and fulfillment. They can also encourage good habits that will benefit children and young people both now and in the future.
