Ysgol Gyfun Ystalyfera is part of the network for Healthy Schools in Neath & Port Talbot, and is at the moment working towards our fourth leaf.
The Healthy Schools Programme supports every aspect within the school that enhances health, both bodily and emotionally and the well being of staff and pupils, this is evident throughout the daily school life.
The programme has been split into seven areas:
1. Food and Fitness
2. Mental and emotional Health and Welbeing
3. Develop Personal and interpersonal relationships
4. Use and Abuse of substances
5. The Environment.
During the current period, we are concentrating on areas 1 (Food and Fitness), 2 (Mental and Emotional Health and Wellbeing) and 6 (Safety).
We will collect evidence, with the help of the School Council, pupils and other staff to show that our school is healthy.
