Schools Superzones

Aims

We are setting up a number of ‘Superzones’ around our schools which aim to create healthier and safer places for children and young people to live, learn and play.

The zones cover a 400m area (roughly a 5-10 minute walk) and are designed to protect children’s health and encourage healthy behaviours in more deprived communities.

Within each zone we will be looking to reduce:

  • Unhealthy food and drink sales
  • Advertisements
  • Alcohol, smoking and gambling
  • Poor air quality

And to promote

  • Physical activity
  • Positive mental health
  • Community safety
