Children's Health Project



Essential for high quality PE lessons and sports clubs.

For the second year running we have subscribed to this health and wellbeing scheme of work. It supports our PE specialist's, giving them the resources and lesson plans to deliver a holistic programme for health and wellbeing to our children. It has four key areas each having ten topics within focusing on Healthy Movement, Healthy Nutrition, Healthy Habits and Healthy thoughts. All children engage with this Health Related Fitness module, learning how to set themselves realistic targets, choose the right foods and the links between healthy body and healthy minds.

Flood Lights for the all-weather pitch


In the winter months we have had to finish clubs earlier due to the lack of light and in some cases, cancel them. By spending £1425 on portable battery operated flood lights we have been able to continue our free to all extra-curricular sports throughout the winter months allowing more children access to being active.



Our midday assistants have attended a training session to show them how to support and promote safe and active lunchtimes for our children and support our play leaders.
