The Healthy Schools Cardiff Network is a local award scheme managed by the Cardiff Education Service and supported by key partners including the Cardiff and Vale Local Public Health Team.
The scheme has been running since 1999 and is accredited by the Welsh Network of Healthy School Schemes. Funding for all the Healthy School schemes across Wales is provided by Public Health Wales.
The Cardiff Healthy Schools Team works with maintained schools in the local authority, including nursery, primary, secondary schools and special schools, along with the pupil referral unit and some independent schools.
The main aim of the scheme is to support schools to develop and embed a whole school approach to health and wellbeing, across 7 health topics. Schools can access a range of resources, training, programmes and support from the Healthy Schools team and partner agencies.
