Our healthy & active school day

Our healthy and active school day


We are so passionate about the benefits of an active lifestyle that we weave it through our whole school day. Our uniform is designed to make it as easy as possible for all children to take part in sport and activity throughout the day and for our staff to be able to incorporate movement into lessons.


We are so passionate about helping children move more that we have a dedicated active Learning Mentor, Mr Read. Mr Read is a Qualified Personal Trainer and also a PE specialist who leads the Active 15, active breaks and lunchtimes and runs an afterschool sports club from Monday to Thursday. We also have a variety of after-school clubs ranging from Dance in Y1-2 to football teams in Y5-6!


Each day every class takes part in the Active 15. This is 15 minutes of activity with a different activity taking place each day. These include Running, skipping, dance and HIIT sessions and much more! 


Children also have the opportunity to take part in fun, energetic activities at break and lunchtimes


Our healthy eating policy means that crisps, sweets and cakes should remain at home to be an occasional treat and we should instead see lots of nutritious lunches to fuel the rest of the day.
