Why are we a Healthy School?

As a Healthy School our aim is to help children and young people to grow healthily, safely and responsibly and to become active citizens who do their bit for society and for the environment.

We actively promote physical and emotional health within our school by equipping our children and staff with the understanding, skills and attitudes to make informed decisions about their health.

Our children flourish in a positive environment and are given a voice to influence whole-school decisions. As a healthy school we understand the importance of investing in health to help our children to do their best.

Healthy Eating
Through our Science, DT and Healthy Schools programme, we have the confidence, skills, knowledge and understanding to make healthy food choices.

Let's get Sugar Smart
It is believed that children are consuming far too much sugar, which can have a huge impact on a child's health, such as tooth decay, weight gain and general wellbeing. This new campaign is aimed at helping parents look at how they can reduce the amount of sugar their child consumes.

The Change4Life Sugar Smart app is designed to show quickly and easily how much total sugar is in the things you're buying, eating and drinking, to help you spot it more easily so you can make healthier choices and cut your sugar intake.

The app will enable you to see how much sugar there is in everyday foods and drinks. The free app works by scanning the barcode of products and revealing the amount of total sugar it contains in cubes and grams. Please follow the link below for more information and how to get the app!

Fruit and Vegetable Snacks
We are part of the national scheme which provides a piece of fruit or vegetable per day for each KS1 child in the school, although healthy snacks can also be sent in from home. All children are encouraged to try fruits and vegetables they may have not eaten before.

Physical Activity
Through our PE Curriculum and Healthy Schools programme, we understand how physical activity can help us to be healthier, and how physical activity should be part of our everyday life.
