Quality Education Meeting Individual Needs

Healthy Schools

Staying Healthy

It is a fact that healthier children do better in learning and in life. By enabling children to make positive changes to their behaviour regarding health and well-being we are helping them to reach their full potential in terms of achievement and fulfilment, as well as encouraging good habits which will benefit them both now and in the future.

As a school we are proud to have achieved 'Healthy School Status' - Silver Award.  We promote healthy eating by not allowing sweets in school, but by encouraging KS2 children to bring healthy snacks for breaktime such as fruit.

Nursery and KS1 children are provided with a piece of fruit each day and are actively encouraged by staff to take up this offer. Water is positively encouraged in children's water bottles and is also available in the classroom, playground and dinner hall.

Every child takes part in two hours of high quality P.E. each week as well as additional activities such as swimming and the 'Daily Mile'.

The school is proud of its sporting success, always wanting to be at the forefront of any new activities.
