As part of an ongoing campaign to improve the health and wellbeing of Bristol’s school pupils across the city, a newly launched book aims to reflect the standards of healthy living across all schools.

The book, ‘The Big Book of Bristol Healthy Schools’ will be rolled out across all libraries and schools in the city as part of a drive to improve the health of school children.

The work of the Bristol Healthy Schools programme directly underpins the core aim of Public Health England to “protect and improve the nation’s health and wellbeing, and reduce health inequalities”.
