Stephanie, Early Years Foundation Leader at Henley Green School, worked in partnership with the Be Active Be Healthy Team, who are part of our Family Health and Wellbeing Services run by SWFT. They worked together to run a new early years pilot of family activity, offering a 6 week programme for parents and 0-5’s.
In previous years the team has tried to deliver ‘One Body One Life’ after school and had limited engagement from families. Stephanie involved parents in designing the programme, including what topics they wanted to see included, which helped them commit to attending each week. The programme ran successfully with 14 families, culminating with a wonderful cooking session where all the families got involved and came together as a team, creating a healthy chickpea curry to take away.
The feedback from parents ranged from thanking the team for helping them understand how to eat healthily, to telling them that the programme has helped one parent change their life, signing up to CBT therapy after a session around mental wellbeing.
The nominator said the programme “would not have happened without Stephanie’s support and constant encouragement of the families.”
