Health Committee

                                                             Welcome to our Health Committee page!

 

We have been working towards achieving Healthy Schools Status by evaluating our current provision in PSHCE, Physical Activity, Healthy Eating and Emotional Health and Wellbeing, and creating an action plan to ensure that we meet 'established' standards. I am thrilled to announce that we achieved Healthy Schools Status in July 2017. This would not have been possible without the hard work of the Health Committee members, including our Year 6 girls Poppy, Isobel and Maddison who have now moved onto Senior school.

 

We have achieved many things over the last 18 months including:

  • reviewing and developing the PSHCE Curriculum to ensure that it continues to be in line with current guidance
  • developing both staff and children's physical fitness through staff vs. children's sports events, a staff charity running event and the introduction of the 'Daily Mile'.
  • surveying children's morning snacks and packed lunches to ensure all children are eating healthily and drinking water at school
  • introducing 'Mindfulness' and 'Growth Mindsets' as part of a focus on mental health in school
  • introducing "Wheelie Wednesdays", encouraging children to come to school on a different "healthy" mode of transport on a weekly basis
  • introducing a "quiet area" outside at lunch times for drawing, writing and reading, as suggested by some children through a pupil voice questionnaire
  • a healthy eating focus in sports week, including designing a healthy school lunch which was cooked by Tracy our cook on the last week of term! 

 

This year the Health Committee will continue to reinforce and develop aspects of health and well-being. Our new Year 6 members are Jake, James and Grace. We will meet half termly and the children will be involved in obtaining the views and ideas of our children and also feeding back to them work we are doing in relation to health and well being. Mrs Wilson is looking forward to working with them and hearing all of their great ideas!

Healthy Eating

Come and see our new display in the hall showing how much sugar is in different drinks. The children have already been looking at it and are quite shocked at the amount of sugar in certain drinks, particularly ones that they thought weren't unhealthy!
