Public Health Schools

We work directly with schools and their partners to improve the health and wellbeing of everyone connected with Brighton & Hove state schools, free schools and academies. This includes parents and carers, school staff, children and young people.

We use feedback from the school community and school health profiles to identify priorities for each school.

We work in partnership with schools to help them with issues such as

  • healthy diet and nutrition
  • physical activity
  • substance misuse
  • smoking
  • sexual health
  • emotional health and wellbeing
  • accident prevention

Our work complements the Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) programme of study for the city's schools, and supports the implementation of the Early Help Strategy.

We work directly with schools. For a full list of the help available, please contact ph.schoolsprogramme@brighton-hove.gov.uk

Evaluation and annual report

Since the launch of Public Health Schools in March 2014, 96% of primary, secondary, and special schools across the city have signed up to the programme.

2015/16 school year

We worked with 48 infant, junior and primary schools, and 10 secondary schools during the second year of the programme. Together we've delivered 19 projects across a wide range of health improvement areas. We've also worked with staff through the workforce offer, specific training, PSHE support and in pilot projects, as well as with parents and carers through workshops and groups.
