Education, Attainment and Children’s Health

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

Public Health colleagues have worked in partnership with the Island’s Executive Head-teacher Group. This group brings together key stakeholders to co-produce and develop a new ‘whole-school’ framework.

The framework is for Island schools to follow. It builds on the the previous ‘National Healthy Schools Award’.

It focuses 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. The matrix 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. It provides recognition to schools meeting the health and wellbeing requirements associated with improving pupil attainment and behaviour.
