Developing well JSNA

Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) identifies key issues affecting the health and wellbeing of our residents, both now and in the future.

The school years are a time of development and growth. We want Rochdale borough’s school children to be mentally and physically healthy, to have gained qualifications and to have developed healthy habits by the time they're 16 years old.

Our data shows school children doing as expected given the social and economic challenges in the borough.

Positives in this area are the high levels of vaccination and low levels of traffic accidents. Areas of concern are the rate of hospital admissions and level of obesity.

There are areas for improvement around mental wellbeing, such as diet, having regular meals, getting enough exercise and reducing bullying. Smoking is particularly harmful and is showing to be declining in number in children under 16 years old.
