We have selected eight case studies to share in this year’s report. We feel each one demonstrates how Public Health is working together with children and young people to make a positive difference on health outcomes. Please view these below.
Our biggest success story in 2016 is the School Health Improvement Group (SHIG) which brings together people from Public Health and education, to plan how we are going to improve school health.
The group identified key areas we needed to work on, and explores the best means to engage with our schools.
This work includes the case studies below that focus on:
-Emotional health and wellbeing and introducing a Borough Wellbeing Charter Mark
-Understanding Physical Activity Levels with our children, and supporting schools implement more activity into the school day
-Listening to our children and giving them opportunities to be heard through SHAPE
-Ensuring our PSHE provision reflects the needs of our children and young people and providing schools the oppportunity to shape the provision
-Working with schools to improve what is offered outside of the classroom time to improve the outcomes of our children
