Health and Wellbeing

We have been working hard in school looking at healthy choice, healthy eating and healthy lifestyles.

Pupil voice has been very active via Class Council and School Council meetings. The children have been instrumental in changes made to how and where they eat their lunch and what choices are available. They are looking at what constitutes a healthy meal or snack and have been investigating food labels and sugar content!

Staff, Parents and Governors have also had a voice in how we can support children to make healthy choices.

You can see how we have consulted all stakeholders here:

Parental Questionnaire (now closed)

Pupil Questionnaire (now closed)

Feedback from Pupil and Parental Questionnaires

The result of our consultation is our new School Food and Drink Policy.

Initially we had decided that children should only bring a piece of fruit into school for their morning snack. This is still the preferred choice but in listening to children and parents, we recognise the need for other options.

You can find the NHS guidance for healthier snacks here. The children have looked at these and agreed there are options for everyone!

We are still saying no to chocolate coated biscuits, chocolate, crisps and sweets. 

You can find guidance for packed lunches in the new School Food and Drink Policy. The children have devised questions for the school cook, Mrs Clarke, about how the school lunches are made. When they have interviewed her, we will post the replies on this page. 

You can find the School Lunches menu here.

New School Food Standards

There are lots of great things happening in school. Class Two are aiming to run a mile every day! This is not as scary as it sounds. They have a well planed route that they run, walk, skip or chat round five times. It is weather dependent but they put us all to shame with their boundless energy.

See the pictures!

We have a new piece of play equipment which we have been using a lot at playtimes!
