Our school community is committed to promoting a healthy lifestyle. We have recently received our Healthy Schools Award from 2017-2019. At morning break, fruit or a healthy alternative is available to all children. Parents and carers are encouraged to ensure that packed lunches are as healthy and nutritionally balanced as possible. Water is provided within school. We kindly request that sweets and fizzy drinks are not sent into school.
As a school we truly believe that ensuring the emotional wellbeing of our learners is paramount to their health and progress. This belief is embedded into our everyday practice. To supplement this we have recently been chosen to be a part of the Reliance Project, this aims to support the work we already undertake in raising the resilience of our learners, for the purpose of the project their is a particular focus on Years 3 and 4. We have also recently had two members of staff trained in delivering Yoga and Mindfulness to our learners and are in the process of integrating this further into our everyday curriculum.
We have a policy of zero tolerance of bullying. Please refer to the Anti-bullying and PSHE policy.
We have strong working relationships with all professionals and this is essential to meeting our pupils’ needs. School staff work closely and collaboratively with many professionals, these include: Health Advisors; Speech and Language therapists; Hearing Impairment specialists; Visual Impairment Specialists, Physiotherapists and Social workers. Therapists and other professionals work from our specialist rooms, these provide space for 1:1 sessions, group work and for meetings with parents.
