Healthy Schools

The Priory Ruskin Academy has Enhanced Healthy Schools status


 This is an exciting long-term initiative which is already in the process of making significant changes to the health and achievement of students, parents/carers and staff. The National Healthy Schools Programme unites the links between health, behaviour and achievement, and has similar principles to the Academy's ethos. Its role at Priory Ruskin is about creating a healthy and happy path for the students, who will do better in learning and in life.


The programme is based on a whole-school approach to physical and emotional well-being and is focused on four core themes:

- Personal, Social & Health Education

- Healthy Eating

- Physical Activity

- Emotional Health & Well-being
