Eat Them To Defeat Them Campaign! 😀🥦🥗🥕😀
We have joined a multi-award-winning campaign called "Eat Them To Defeat Them" Which will be running between Monday 20th February - Friday 31st March 2023.
Each child has been given special mission packs. Catering staff and Middays have been given special stickers to award children who try new vegetables throughout the campaign... and beyond!

A-life Healthy School Workshop 👟🤸♀️🏃♂️👩⚕️🥗
Today A-life Healthy School Workshops brought the curriculum to life with hands-on activities that were accessible for all ages abilities, mixed language groups and SEN pupils. All activities were carefully planned and prepared to meet objectives set out in the RHE, Science, PE and PSHE curriculum in a fun and interactive way. Check out the pictures below!
Wow-The Walk To School Challenge 🐾🦶👟🙌
WOW is a pupil-led initiative where children self-report how they get to school every day using the interactive WOW Travel Tracker. If they travel sustainably (walk/wheel, cycle or scoot) once a week for a month, they get rewarded with a badge. It's that easy!
Milk in School
Please use the link below if your child is in Years 1-6 and you would like your child to have milk in school.
Children in Nursery and Reception all receive milk free of charge every day.
Fruit or vegetables snacks are provided for Nursery, Reception and KS1 everyday.
Children in KS2 are invited to bring in fruit or vegetables for their snack at break time.
The School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme helps your child achieve 5 A DAY.
Fruit and vegetables are a good source of the nutrients that children need and form part of a healthy, balanced diet.
It's recommended that children – like adults – eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables every day. But research shows that on average children in England eat only about three portions, with many eating fewer.
For handy tips on how to get more fruit and veg into your children's diet, read 5 A DAY and your family.
The School Fruit and Veg Scheme and your child
If your child is aged four to six and attends a fully state-funded infant, primary or special school, they are entitled to receive a free piece of fruit or vegetable each school day.
That provides one of their 5 A DAY portions, and the scheme also helps to increase awareness of the importance of eating fruit and vegetables, encouraging healthy eating habits that can be carried into later life.
There is a choice of:
- easy-peel citrus fruits, such as satsumas
* We also offer strawberries when they are in season.
