The programme has been developed with educational specialists, alongside experts in physical activity, nutrition, well-being and psychology. The health homework programme attempts to give equal prominence to health as is given to academic subjects. It includes short burst, fun activities which can involve all the family. For the 2017/18 school year, the wellbeing and nutrition elements of the programme have been enhanced to ensure children focus on a healthy mind and a healthy body.
