Comprehensive school health is an internationally recognized approach to supporting improvements in students’ educational outcomes while addressing school health in a planned, integrated and holistic way.
This whole-school model builds capacity to incorporate well-being as an essential aspect of student achievement. Actions address four distinct but interrelated components that comprise a comprehensive school health approach:
- social and physical environment
- teaching and learning
- partnerships and services.
When actions in all four components are harmonized, students are supported to realize their full potential as learners – and as healthy, productive members of society.
