Health Committee

Sine the Summer Term 2016 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.


The Healthy Schools Committee is comprised of Mrs Wilson (PSHE Leader), Mr Murton (PE Leader, Mrs Dockrell (Year 4), Mrs Simmons (Teaching Assistant), Rosemary Franklin (Governor) and Rosie, Poppy, Isobel and Maddison from year 6. They have been working incredibly hard to ensure we achieve the targets in our action plan.


In the Autumn and Spring Terms we have:

  • reviewed and developed the PSHCE Curriculum to ensure that it continues to be in line with current guidance
  • developed both staff and children's physical fitness through staff vs. children's sports events, a staff charity running event and several planned 'come to school' transport days
  • surveyed children's morning snacks and packed lunches to ensure all children are eating and drinking healthily at school
  • introduced 'Mindfulness' and 'Growth Mindsets' as part of a focus on mental health in school
  • introduced "Wheelie Wednesdays", encouraging children to come to school on a different "healthy" mode of transport on a weekly basis
  • Mr Murton has introduced the 'Daily Mile', encouraging each class to run for a period of time on a daily basis
  • Miss Martindale and the school council have re-introduced the friendship stop to ensure children are using it effectively
  • The children now have a "quiet area" outside at lunch times for drawing, writing and reading, as suggested by some children through a pupil voice questionnaire


Thank you very much for your donations of books and pencils for the outdoor quiet area.


We will also be having a "Healthy Me" week to coincide with Sports Week. More details will follow soon.


Attached is a copy of the action plan if you would like to see what we have been up to. We are coming towards the end of the process and fingers crossed we will achieve Healthy Schools Status very soon!
