Healthy Schools

Good health is vital and healthy eating, being one of many contributors to this, can influence physical, mental and social well-being.

At Woodlands School, the staff are dedicated to helping each child understand the role of healthy eating in achieving good health. We also recognise that healthy eating does not mean having no treats, but means having them at appropriate times. 

Along with healthy eating we also promote good physical and emotional health by providing accessible and relevant information and equipping pupils with the skills and attitudes to make informed decisions about their health.

Our Aims:

  • To promote a whole school approach to a healthy lifestyle

  • To encourage children and staff to make informed decisions on a healthy lifestyle based on positive attitudes and information

  • To promote safe working and playing relationships and environment both inside and outside of school

  • To provide high quality Physical Education and School Sport and promote Physical Activity as part of a lifelong healthy lifestyle

  • To provide children and staff with the opportunities to make informed choices about a healthy lifestyle based on current information and liaison with outside agencies

  • To encourage children to choose a healthy snack at morning break time

  • To help children develop greater confidence, motivation, self-esteem and have the skills, information and understanding to make important life and health choices
