Working with the School's Health Office

For schools looking to seamlessly integrate health services into their culture, working with this on-site team is vital to the Whole School Approach.

Influence school policy and decision making on student health and well-being strategies


The department is required to give clear advice to students and know when, or if, parental involvement is required.


All protocols must reflect local alcohol, drug and age of consent laws whilst being culturally sensitive in the way such issues are managed.

Clearly their role should be reflected in CSE policy and in day-to-day school practise.
