Healthy School

 

HEALTHY EATING: As an accredited National Healthy School and are committed to promoting and monitoring healthy food at break and lunch times. Different teaching styles and learning opportunities are offered to pupils to develop their awareness and understanding of healthier eating and basic food safety practices, including regular opportunities to cook.

SNACK TIME: You may like your child to have a mid-morning snack. We welcome fruit and vegetables, and would ask you not to send your child with chocolate, crisps or sweets of any kind. We have fruit tuck shop on offer everyday.

WATER: Research shows that our brains need water to stay active and alert. All children are encouraged to bring water into school daily, in a spill-proof plastic bottle that they can take home at night to rinse and refill. Children, parents and staff speak highly of the benefits.

We are a NQA School!!

We successfully gained NQA status for the second time in October 2015.  We had a 2 day assessment to celebrate the very hard work we have been doing throughout the last 11 years whilst working on the Healthy Schools Scheme. We are looking forward to having a special assembly where we will be presented with our award.
