Request from Dept. Of Education on mapping of Healthy Schools Programme

Dear colleagues

Just to let you know that last week Public Health England North East received a request from the Dept. Of Education to map out the current provision of healthy schools programmes across the north east region.

This is in preparation for the introduction of the new Healthy Rating scheme for schools that was announced in this summers Child Obesity Strategy that is being introduced from September 2017 and will be monitored by Ofsted.

It is encouraging to hear about this request as this potentially shows the importance of Healthy Schools programmes in contributing to the Healthy Rating Scheme.

I'll keep you all posted with further news as when we receive it.
