We believe that our children should understand about the importance of keeping fit and following a healthy diet and lifestyle. We are committed to promoting the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and to educating the children into being able to make informed choices.
The aims of the Healthy Schools Programme are:
To support children in developing healthy behaviours
To help raise pupil achievement
To help reduce health inequalities
To help promote social inclusion
On Wednesday morning our children take part in a ten minute exercise activity called ‘Wake Up, Shake Up’ where they warm up and dance to music. This is very popular with all our children.
We take the subject of the health and fitness of our children very seriously and we continuously look for ways of reinforcing this message within school. We also rely upon the help and support of parents at home to encourage their children to be active and to make healthy choices.
Healthy eating at School
Children may bring a small snack of fruit or vegetables to eat during mid-morning playtime.
Fruit is provided free of charge for all of FS2 and KS1 children at playtime under the Governments’ “Take 5” Fruit and Vegetable initiative. Free milk is available for children under 5.
Children can bring their own packed lunch or have a hot school dinner, which needs to be booked in advance. Our hot school dinners are freshly prepared each day.
