We are a Healthy School!
This means that we:
- Identify, develop and communicate a positive message and appropriate values in relation to the health and well-being of the whole school community
- Actively value and promote the self-esteem of all members of the school community, develop good relationships in the daily life of the school and are welcoming and open to parents and the wider community
- Are successful in helping pupils and staff do their best and celebrates their achievements
- Offer all pupils the opportunity to benefit from a broad, balanced, creative and stimulating education that challenges and promotes brain-friendly learning
- Promote good communication within the whole school community ensuring that pupils and staff are given an effective voice in whole school decision making
- Provide an accessible and relevant PSHE / Citizenship programme which enables pupils to develop their skills and attitudes in order to make informed choices about their health and to develop their social, moral, spiritual and cultural awareness
- Invest in the physical and emotional health of staff and pupils to help improve standards and raise achievement
- Provide a range of opportunities beyond the curriculum which promote the development of skills
- Take every opportunity to provide a safe, happy and reflective learning environment which promotes inclusion
Part of our Healthy School status is to encourage our children to eat a healthy diet, this is why we only allow unprocessed fruit and vegetables for our mid-morning snack and encourage children to bring a bottle of water to drink during the school day.
