  • Why

    To create a cogent national programme to improve the health and wellbeing of all schoolchildren in England and Wales, bringing together disparate localised schemes. This was targeted to achieve engagement of 80% of schools.

  • How

    We engaged with a range of localised projects, which we then mobilised into a national programme through co-creation with senior central government officials. We developed a national cogent brand and identity, along with a range of events, guides, organisation structures and a significant online platform, allowing for schools to manage their levels of attainment.

  • Outcomes

    98% engagement with schools in England and Wales, with improved levels of attainment for the involved schools.
