Healthy Lifestyles

Manchester Healthy Schools is committed to raising awareness about the importance of healthy lifestyles and equipping staff with the knowledge and understanding about a multi-faceted approach to reducing obesity amongst children and young people.

Training has been developed to support schools to develop healthy eating policies and best practice around encouraging physical activity for all ages.

Universal training is available for all schools that have completed the Health Check.

Schools that have prioritised Healthy Lifestyles this year will have access to a wider selection of bespoke or 'in-house' training and support to ensure that they are able to make significant progress in this area.

Please contact for more information.

Please find a full list of training available to support healthy lifestyles below. Bespoke training for secondary schools and special schools is available on request.
