An updated health and wellbeing policy for your school
An updated template has been created to provide schools a base or framework to develop their health and wellbeing policy. The focus of the policy is on sun protection, nutrition, physical activity, positive mental health, not using tobacco products or e-cigarettes and avoiding alcohol. Ensuring that your school is inclusive of all the listed health areas is important to ensuring the development of good, healthy behaviours. When developing your schools policy, you have the option to add and remove content to best fit your schools needs and requirements.
The highlighted areas in this policy template relate to the SunSmart Schools, Crunch&Sip and Mentally Healthy Schools programs. Including these components satisfies the requirements of the programs and meets the accreditation criteria for membership.
