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
- Alcohol, smoking and gambling
- Poor air quality
And to promote
- Physical activity
- Positive mental health
- Community safety
Holy Trinity Primary (external link), Earlsmead Primary (external link), Welbourne Primary and Children’s Centre (external link) are in the pilot phase of Haringey’s Schools Superzone project.
Superzones are set to be rolled out across London later this year.
