School Nurses play an important role in promoting healthy lifestyles and are well placed to influence and support positive behaviour change but we know as a small workforce for any enduring improvement a collaborative partnership approach has sustainability. We work closely and effectively with local partners and with them are continually thinking about different ways to engage young people and promote healthy lifestyles. Recently the Warwickshire School Health and Wellbeing Service (SHWBS) took part in an exciting project with local partners to encourage and establish new breakfast and physical activity habits with year 5 pupils.
