Supporting and encouraging settings and schools to develop and deepen their focus on health and wellbeing to support the attainment, achievement and happiness of their children, staff and wider communities.

Healthy Schools London and Healthy Early Years London Awards, Domestic Abuse Prevention Programme for Schools, plus additional PSHE support


Health Education Partnership have been commissioned by Kensington and Chelsea, and Westminster Public Health Team to provide free support to early years settings, primary and secondary schools with the following programmes.

Healthy Early Years London (HEYL)
HEYL complements and enhances the statutory Early Years Foundation Stage framework, adding to the focus on children, families and staff health and wellbeing.
The 4 levels of Awards - HEYL First Steps, Bronze, Silver and Gold - can be used to improve and support practice in all Early Years settings:

  • private, voluntary and independent nurseries
  • children’s centres
  • childminders
  • Early Years in schools including schools with two-year old provision nursery schools
  • crèches and playgroup

Healthy Schools London (HSL) Awards
HSL Bronze Award
Schools complete a review to demonstrate they have maintained/achieved the requirements of Healthy Schools Status. There are a number of criteria relating to both the school curriculum and the emotional and physical learning environment that schools need to fulfil in order to achieve Healthy School Status.
HSL Silver and Gold Awards
Once schools have achieved Healthy Schools Status they can move on to the next level which enables them to understand and improve the specific health and wellbeing needs of their pupils.
Schools will identify the main health priorities for their pupils and devise new enhanced projects, practices and interventions to target these priorities. Example health priorities might include healthy weight, emotional health and wellbeing, and oral health.

Domestic Abuse Prevention Programme for Schools
Schools engaging with the Programme will receive guidance and support to:

  • Address Domestic Abuse (DA) and Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) preventatively using the whole school approach;
  • Strengthen school safeguarding policy and procedures and embed best practice;
  • Increase teacher confidence to address DA sensitively and safely;
  • Contribute to the improvement of pupils’ mental health and wellbeing;
  • Increase pupils’ skills and abilities to form healthy relationship and seek support when in need;
  • Increase early identification and prevention of DA cases; and
  • Meet the DfE statutory guidance on Relationships and Sex Education, Relationships Education and Health Education, September 2020.
