Growing Together To Be Our Best

Health and Wellbeing

As a school, the children's health and well being is of paramount importance. We begin each day with daily exercise and kick off the afternoon session with some mindfulness. 

We tie in health and well being links into our termly topics and ensure pupil voice is at the forefront of our planning.


Our current topic is Fairy tales, focusing on the Grimms Brothers' traditional fairy tales. For 3 weeks, we will be looking at Hansel and Gretel. Our health and well being focus during this topic will be dental hygiene, where we'll talk to the children about making healthy choices, sugar swaps and how to keep our teeth happy. We'll also being focusing on fairy tale forests and staying connected with nature, away from our tablets and games.


On 'Well being Wednesday' (every Wednesday), the children will experience a new skill (e.g. gardening), be given the opportunity to connect with the community and help others (e.g. making cards for the elderly), discuss thoughts and feelings and carry out activities which will encourage a healthy lifestyle and helping the planet.
