Cornwall Healthy Schools

Friday Update: 13th July
Thank you for another amazing year!!!

This week’s Friday Update will be our last before the Schools Summer Holidays. We would like to thank all the schools who we have worked with over the past school year and many congratulations to all those that attained awards from us.

We hope we can look forward to seeing you all strive for more next year as well as working with a host of new schools to support the development of their health and wellbeing. From us all at Healthy Schools we hope you have a well-deserved break and look forward to working with you from September!

We shall be out and about before the end of term, presenting plaques to those schools who have successfully gained a Healthy Schools Award this time around, what a lovely, celebratory way to end the school year!

What we’ve been up to:

Sugar Smart:

At the beginning of the week, 5 members of our team were at Newquay Junior Academy delivering SUGAR SMART workshops to Year 3 and 5 pupils as part of their wellbeing week. It was a fantastic day and we had a great time! Thank you for having us!

Emotional Health and Wellbeing Training:

On Thursday we delivered an EHWB workshop at Truro College for the Cornwall Teaching School based on our Whole School Approach to Good Mental HealthReSET and Staff Wellbeing training sessions. There were delegates from primary, secondary and tertiary settings. We highlighted some of the risks to mental health and looked at some positive steps we can all take to promote resilience and positive mental health for everyone in the education workplace. We had a lovely (all too brief) session, thanks to all who attended!

Following on from Cornwall’s success with The Daily Mile in primary schools you are invited to join us for a free fun run and festival of health and wellbeing!

On the 16th October Go Run For Fun will be coming to Cornwall to host a free 1 mile running event for ALL children of ALL abilities.
This is non-competitive so please encourage your least active children – it’s ok to walk, jog, run, skip or dance the route!

All children taking part will receive a free t-shirt and it’s a great event for children who might not normally engage in physical activity.
This will be followed with a festival of health and wellbeing promoting healthy schools, sugar smart, eating well and lots of different options to be active in Cornwall.
