Torbay Healthy Learning goes live!
Torbay Healthy Learning is a new Public Health programme to help nurseries, schools and further education settings deliver health & wellbeing for children and young people in the Bay aged 2-19.
Torbay Council’s new healthy schools resource, kick-starting with a dynamic website including supporting social media, aims to be the go to resource for teachers and school staff regarding all aspects of a child’s and young person’s health and wellbeing.
It is anticipated that the website and social media will be the start point for a much wider programme to include school awards, conferences and resources for parents amongst other aspects.
The main areas of Torbay Healthy Learning are:
Early years – support and guidance to help the wellbeing and development of children in the early years setting
Emotional Health & Well-being – supporting nurseries, schools and colleges to work with their local communities to build the resilience and confidence of children and young people so that they can have the best possible start in life.
Physical Activity – support to promote physical activity, making it a part of everyday life both at school and home.
Nutrition – support to promote pupils healthy eating, maintain a balanced diet and make healthy choices in school, home and the community.
Personal Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) – support to deliver PSHE education, which gives pupils the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe and to prepare them for life and work in modern Britain.
Events, campaigns, ‘in the news’ items, training opportunities and network meetings relating to our five themes above
