When schools, families and communities work together to support learning, children tend to do better, stay longer and enjoy school more.
Parents and carers are crucial to the success of Healthy Schools and the healthy living messages we hope children will adopt.
Families in it Together (FIT) has developed from some terrific Healthy Schools Plus work carried out in schools in Cornwall. A lot of schools used Healthy Schools Plus to bring parents and carers into school for sessions with their children. This was so effective that we wanted to take it further so we developed Families In It Together which we are supporting with a whole new website inspired by the Change4Life movement, FIT Cornwall.
