Equally well

26th February 2010 at 00:00

With a history of deprivation and poor health in the Garnock Valley, St Bridget's Primary in North Ayrshire launched a well-being programme with funding from Healthy North Ayrshire. Critical success factors were input from parents, information about available resources, and improved liaison between the primary school, Garnock Valley Early Years Centre and the community. Parent questionnaires were sent out, a health information session, an Equally Well drop-in day and other meetings were arranged at the school, and flyers sent out. Feedback from parents has been positive, with requests for further workshops on behaviour management, healthy eating and sleeping.
