Public health in schools
Public Health is the science and practice of preventing disease and ill health, and prolonging and promoting good health and wellbeing. As a team we used to be part of the NHS, but we have now become part of Buckinghamshire Council, while still retaining our close links with the NHS.
Promoting the health and wellbeing of children and young people is extremely important in order to provide them with a good start in life, equipping them with the resilience and skills they need to flourish.
Healthy children have been shown to be more likely to achieve well academically, behave better in the classroom, and go on to have greater success in their career and personal life.
Information on these pages has been put together in direct response to the request from schools for more coordinated and concise health information to support school activities. We hope you find it helpful and look forward to receiving your feedback.
