Public Health - Living Well

Partnership for Education, Attainment & Children’s Health

Partnership for Education, Attainment & Children’s Health (PEACH)

In partnership with the Island’s Executive Head-teacher Group, Public Health colleagues have worked to bring together key stakeholders to co-produce and develop a new ‘whole-school’ framework. This framework for Island primary schools, builds from the previous ‘National Healthy Schools Award’ and focus on four domains:

  • Personal, Social, Health and Economic education
  • Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health

  • Physical Activity

  • Healthy Eating



The four domains form a ‘self-assessment’ matrix which supports schools in identifying areas for improvement and informing their curriculum planning.

Within each domain, a set of key criteria are outlined and fulfilment of these will align with a three-tier awarding system. This three-tier system; Bronze, Silver and Gold, correlates with Ofsted standards and will provide recognition to schools meeting the health and wellbeing requirements associated with improving pupil attainment and behaviour.
