"We think it's important for us to be a healthy school because being healthy gives our bodies more energy and power so we can have fun, keep fit and not get poorly"  Year 3 Pupils

"We believe it is important to teach our children about how to lead a healthy lifestyle so they are empowered to make the right choices"  Staff

"We think it is important to be part of a healthy school because it encourages us to eat well plus we have the opportunity to take part in so many different sports which keep us fit"  Year 5 Pupils

Remember to bring a snack and water- bottle (and hat if it's hot or coat if it's not) each day.
A healthy snack is a piece of fruit or vegetables or salad or plain breadsticks or plain rice cakes or plain popcorn each day.  Following the success and popularity of the Fruit Tasting at our open day last term, we know our children enjoy eating fruit in school so eating only fruit or vegetables for snacks is encouraged.   Try to bring a combination of fruits in different colours as part of your five-a-day and our aim to 'Eat a Rainbow'.

School packed lunches should be healthy and cover a range of food groups.  Your child could have a sandwich or wrap or salad then a piece of fruit or yoghurt for dessert.  There are many more recipe ideas on our food page (see the link at the bottom of this page).

To help children understand which foods are treats and that treats are not eaten at every meal, we call Friday 'Treat Day'.  This means that a packed lunch may contain one item that isn't eaten normally every day such as a packet of crisps or a shop- bought cake or chocolate biscuit.  The treat must still be balanced out with other healthy foods.  Although Friday lunchtime is treat lunch day, packed lunches must never contain sweets, fizzy drinks or a bar of chocolate.
