Healthy Schools

A Healthy School:

  • is one that promotes physical, social and emotional health and helps equip pupils, staff and families with the skills and attitudes to make informed decisions about their health. 
  • is successful in supporting pupils to do their best and build on their achievements; it is committed to ongoing improvement and development.
  • recognises the importance of investing in health to assist in the process of raising children and young people's achievement levels.
  • involves the whole school community, parents, governors, staff and pupils in improving children's health, wellbeing and happiness, helping them to get the most out of life. 


Healthy Schools Awards are for schools to recognise their achievements in supporting the health and wellbeing of their pupils. Bronze is awarded to schools that complete either a Local Healthy Schools Review or the Healthy Schools London Review Tool (Bronze Award) and achieve the requirements.

In May 2021 we applied  for the Bronze Award and this was granted in June 2021. The award lasts for for 3 years so we will need to reapply for the Bronze Award in May 2024.

 Bikeability training


 Some of the Year 6 children have been learning how to safely ride a bike.  They have been taught how to balance, navigate obstacles in the playground, look, signal and manoeuvre, and finally gain enough confidence to cycle safely on the roads.  Well done to all those children who passed their Bikeability! 

Thank you to the instructors from Lewisham, who worked so well with our students.  They commented once again, how well mannered and polite the children were, and how they all demonstrated a really positive attitude to learning a new skill.  These children were definitely showing a great growth mindset.  

Well done to everyone.  Maybe we will see you riding your bikes safely to school from now on.
