At St James' we strive to ensure all of our pupils are healthy, both on the inside and out. In July 2016 we received our Bronze Healthy Schools award. We're very excited to announce that we have now been awarded our Silver Healthy Schools award, recognising the work we do to ensure our pupils are aware of how to lead a healthy lifestyle.
We are now working towards our Gold Award to further promote and improve the health and well-being of everyone at St James'. Here are just some of the activities and initiatives we'll be enjoying at school over the next year:
- Philosophy for Children
- Projects on self-regulation and meta-cognition
- participation in the new Head First projects, promoting resilience in children
- Gardening and growing our own fresh fruit and vegetables
- Parent cookery courses
- Lessons following the Swedish 'Flavour School' model
- More extra-curricular sport activities and clubs
Please send all children with their PE kits in a bag into school every Monday, ready for action! We shall keep you posted on our progress as we GO FOR GOLD!
