We are proud to have been awarded Healthy School status by the Local Authority for being a health promoting school.
This means our children have active lifestyles, are encouraged to walk to school, participate in active clubs and adventurous activity and make the most of playtimes by exploring the grounds, using the play equipment and having fun together.
We also promote healthy eating, requesting that children bring only healthy snacks of fresh fruit and vegetables or to have the toast and fruit from the school kitchen. Children in reception, years 1 and 2 are offered fruit or vegetables for snack at morning play provided by the Government ‘free fruit for schools’ scheme. Older children can buy fruit for 25p to be eaten during mid morning break.
All children have drinks bottles provided by school which should only contain water. Our fantastic school cook, Jane Bleaken, cooks wonderful school meals every day using fresh and locally sourced produce. When available she will use vegetables grown in the school garden.
