A healthy school promotes physical and emotional health by providing accessible and relevant information and equips pupils and staff with the understanding, skills and attitudes to make informed decisions about their health. Pupils flourish in a positive environment and are given a voice to influence whole-school decisions. 

Our Healthy Tuck Shop

Our Year 6 children run our healthy tuck shop. They confidently order and prepare fruit and handle the money. 

 Tuck Shop

We recently ordered a tuck shop trolley, the girls are waiting patiently for its arrival!!

We have started our journey to gaining 'The National Quality Award' for Healthy Schools. We are working hard as a whole school across seven key health topics which include:

  • Food and Fitness
  • Mental and Emotional Health and Wellbeing
  • Personal Development and Relationships
  • Substance Use and Misuse
  • Environment
  • Safety
  • Hygiene

We are currently working on improving and making children aware of being hygenic. We are focusing on handwashing, tooth brushing, how germs spread, food hygiene and personal hygiene.

Here are some useful websites to use at home:





Please read our Healthy Schools newsletters which we be sent home regularly updating you on our progress.
