Book your health in school visit for the autumn term.

Visits last one hour and are an opportunity for the headteacher and PSHE coordinator to meet with their health improvement officer to review and identify their pupils’ health priorities.

Last year, over 75% of schools had their health in school visit and 100% of schools said they found their ‘Health in school visit’ useful (Survey Monkey, July 2018).

Schools said it was a useful time where heads and PSHE co-ordinators could meet with their health improvement officer to discuss the health and wellbeing needs of their school. They also stated that it was useful to look at their school’s most recent data and discuss actions for the coming year.

What happens at my visit?

At your school visit, you will get to:

  • Discuss your pupils’ health priorities
  • Receive your pupils’ health data (e.g. HRBS and NCMP 2018-2019)
  • Find out how to get your Healthy Schools London awards
  • Find out about free training, conferences and other events
  • Take away a useful resource pack.

How do I prepare for my visit?

Find out what your school’s health priorities are i.e. speak to your headteacher, look at your 2017 Health Related Behaviour Survey report and NCMP data. If you do not yet have this data, your health improvement officer will bring them to the meeting.

This meeting is most useful where both the headteacher and PSHE Co-ordinator attend. Any other relevant staff members are also welcome to attend this meeting.

Health in school visits are free to all schools.
