Schools provide an important setting for promoting health which can easily be integrated into general health promotion, school curriculum and activities.

Health promoting messages can be reinforced throughout the most influential stages of children’s lives, enabling them to develop lifelong sustainable attitudes, behaviours and skills. The health and wellbeing of school staff, families and community members can also be enhanced by programmes based in schools.

The Toolkit: This online tool brings together a selection of oral health resources linked to key curriculum themes to support planned educational activities to increase oral health knowledge and encourage positive oral health practices.

Please also see the NHS Derbyshire Oral Health Promotion Service Newsletter - an easy way to keep up to date with service delivery, events and free training opportunities across Derbyshire.
