We have been awarded 'Healthy School' status. There are many ways in which you can support us in maintaining this...
- If your child has a packed lunch rather than school dinners please ensure they bring a healthy lunch to school. Try to provide a balanced meal, containing fruit and vegetables, and ensure they don't come to school with sweets or unhealthy snacks.
- Children don't need to bring water into school as they have access to a water cooler in their classroom and are supplied with water at lunch, whether they have school dinners or packed lunch.
- Walk to School - all the children are given the opportunity to participate in WOW, which stands for Walk once a Week. Children are encouraged to walk, cycle or scooter to school on a weekly, if not daily basis. Children record how they traveled to school daily on the class wall-chart. At the end of the month badges are awarded to those children who have walked at least once for each week in that month.
- Alternatively, children are encouraged to ride their bike or scooter to school and then store them safely in our 4 pods, located at the bottom of the playground by the entrance. (Please note that bikes and scooters are left at your own risk, so please secure them with your own lock). Bikes and scooters should not be used in the school playground for the health and safety of our whole school community.
To support our Healthy School, please do not bring in any cakes or sweets to give out to the class to celebrate your child's birthday.
