Healthy Schools


We are really pleased to have been awarded with the Healthy Schools Status!!

We try to promote health and wellbeing for all of our children and staff.

Our PSHE curriculum, after school clubs, school lunches, Forest School and PE lessons all contribute to the health of your child.

We will continue to make Healthy Schools a priority for 2017-18, including the addition of three themed multi-cultural days in which

the whole school will take part in a variety of activities. We will also be introducing three seasonal whole school country walks. 



Congratulations to our Year 6 pupils who have completed their Playleader Training Course. The playleaders will be around to help

on the playground at breaks and lunchtimes, organising play equipment and games. 


We have spent a lovely morning as a whole school on our first of this years seasonal country walks. We enjoyed a 2 mile walk

around our local area. Everybody got their wellies on and off we went to appreciate the beautiful Autumn weather and our lovely

surroundings. Our new reception children walked the whole two miles and our pre-school unit joined us for the first mile.

Fresh air and physical activity that everyone can enjoy! 


We were delighted to be invited to the Essex Healthy Schools Awards Ceremony which we attended with two of our Year 4 Healthy

Schools ambassadors. We went to The Central Baptist Church in Chelmsford for the ceremony which was also attended by local

councillors, the Mayor and Mayoress and Olympic gymnast Brinn Bevan who gave a very inspirational speech and showed us his

medals! We had a great day and shall continue our commitment to healthier living and learning at school.

Remember to try and eat your five-a-day and mix up your colours!

To continue our commitment to being a healthy school, we decided to hold an afternoon of activities linked to the areas we are

focusing on. We worked in our house teams and took part in a rotation where everyone could enjoy all the activities on offer. One

room was used for nutrition and healthy eating, another for well being and mindfulness, there was hedge planting on the field and

fitness training in the hall. At the end of the afternoon we all came together to listen to a short play performed by Saturn class

highlighting internet safety. A big thank you to the parents who gave up their time to help our afternoon run so smoothly.
