Title: Drinking Water in a School Setting


1
Drinking Water in a School Setting
  • Rachel Clements

2
The Challenge
  • Obesity amongst children is on the increase
  • Estimated that 8.5 of 6 yr olds and 15 of 15 yr
    old children are obese
  • 9/10 children are taking food to school that
    contains too much sugar, salt and saturated fat.
  • When we are thirsty mental performance
    deteriorates by 10
  • In an typical week 1 in 5 children eat no fruit
  • 58 of children would like to be taught to cook
    at school
  • Over 90 of children said they would like
    healthier meals at school

3
Bigger Picture
  • White Paper on improving health
  • PSA Target on Obesity
  • Healthy Living Blueprint
  • Healthy Schools Programme

4
Bigger Picture
  • Public Health - a priority for NHS and government
  • NHS Improvement Plan - June 2004

5
White Paper on improving health
  • Published in autumn
  • Informed by consultation
  • Policy direction for future work to tackle
    obesity - including action in schools

6
A Public Commitment
  • July - PSA target for obesity
  • to reduce the year on year rise in the
    prevalence of obesity in children under 11 by
    2010, in the context of a broader strategy to
    reduce obesity in the population as a whole

7
A Public Commitment
  • Jointly owned by the DH, DCMS and DfES
  • Prevention best approach improving diet and
    physical activity
  • Schools are a key setting

8
Healthy Living Blueprint
  • Published 6 September.
  • Joint DH, DfES, FSA, DCMS and DEFRA
  • Sets out Govt vision - that all schools are
    healthy schools, and supports schools in
    achieving this
  • Web portal points schools to information, advice,
    guidance and sources of help
  • www.teachernet.gov.uk

9
Healthy Living Blueprint
  • All pupils should have access to drinking water
  • at all times at a number of points around the
  • school, preferably no from taps in the toilets.
  • Pupils should be permitted to carry water with
  • them and consumption encouraged both in
  • class and during break and lunch time.

10
Healthy Schools Programme
  • Central to Healthy Living Blueprint
  • Jointly funded by DH/DfES
  • Involves eight strands - inc healthy eating,
    physical activity and
  • National evaluation

11
Healthy Schools Programme
  • Quote from a headteacher on the National College
    for School
  • Leadership recent 'hotseat conversation'
    (September 2004)
  • Is the healthy school initiative a way forward to
    combating
  • obesity? Our school gained the healthy school
    award this year. As
  • a result, we have water, fresh fruits and
    delicious carrots and
  • tomatoes available for all our children in the
    infants and drinking
  • water on demand in our juniors all day long. The
    difference it has
  • made to the children's choice of eating habits is
    profound.
  • Children from poor families benefit the most
    they are being
  • introduced to a variety of fruits that are well
    outside their parents'
  • budgets this is empowering our school to have
    future influence
  • in children's eating habits. In my opinion this
    is a positive start to
  • addressing the problems of obesity as well as
    extending the
  • school curriculum on health education.

    develop sustainable and transferable models and
    approaches that will allow other schools to
    benefit from the learnings
