The School Health Service has been working hard to ensure that we can continue to provide healthy lifestyle support to families in a safe and engaging way.

Ready, Steady, Go is our free 8 week programme for children aged 4-11 and their families. The focus of the programme is to help families achieve and maintain a healthy weight by making small and achievable lifestyle changes. Further information about the programme, to include frequently asked questions can be found here.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently delivering a virtual programme, with weekly sessions lasting up to an hour. The programme covers a range of important lifestyle topics including healthy eating, being active, sleep and screen time. Within the sessions, families will be able to interact in group discussions, ask questions and give opinions, as well as take part in a variety of challenges and activities.

In addition to attending the group sessions, families will also have the opportunity to access 1:1 support throughout the duration of the programme where they can discuss their individual progress.

Our next groups will start the week commencing 5th October 2020.

Families can contact us for further information about the programme on 0300 123 4062 or can self-refer via our online referral link at https://www.kentcht.nhs.uk/forms/school-health-service-east-sussex-referral-form/
