Notes: 1. The National Healthy Schools Programme is delivered through the Standards Fund, for which the Department of Health provides the majority of funding but the Department for Children, Schools and Families also contributes. 2. The funding is to local healthy schools partnerships, so is to be shared by LAs with partner primary care trusts.
