Healthy Schools

We were awarded Healthy School status in 2009 and again in 2012.

  • Healthy Eating – all our food is freshly cooked on the site in our own kitchen.  Fresh fruit is provided daily for a healthy snack - children are encouraged to contribute £1 a week for this which they post into a money box on Reception.  Children have easy access to fresh filtered water at all times.
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development - all children belong to a key group and take part in group activities each day.  Staff are trained in child protection ensuring the safety of children and adults.  We have close links with Children’s Centres and Health Centres to enable signposting for parents to other services they may need or request.
  • Physical Activity - we have a great outdoor area with lots of space for running, climbing, riding bikes and playing with bats, balls, hoops and other equipment to develop gross motor skills, other activities such as drawing, cutting and jigsaws develop hand/eye co-ordination and fine motor skills.
  • Emotional Health and Well-being - We have a qualified and experienced SENCO (Special Eductional Needs Co-Ordinator) to support children with additional needs, and their parents.  Our physical environment is warm, clean and safe and we have facilities to support many different needs that children may have.  Our ethos is to reflect the diverse population within our nursery and to promote positive self-esteem.  Every child has a Key Worker to help them settle in and to liaise closely with their parent/carer.
