Among other awards we have achieved at St Joseph's we have been awarded the
National Healthy School Standard.
We have a Healthy Snack Policy, offer healthy balanced freshly cooked dinners each day for the children's lunch (which taste delicious!) and offer lots of opportunities for exercise and education about healthy lifestyles. Have a look in Parents & Carers - Policies - for the most up to date policy.
We have a self service salad bar which our Key Stage 2 children asked for 2 years ago. (see the picture below!) At the same time they noticed how the younger children were struggling with separate plates and bowls and suggested that a tray would be more user friendly for them and so this was organised too with lovely purple sparkly trays! The children still love them!
Some mornings in dry weather our Year 5 lead Key Stage 2 through pre-school exercises
to make sure we are full of energy to start the school day!
All our classes have a daily fitness challenge of the week. Each week they choose a different physical activity such as star jumps and over the course of the week fir the challenge into their daily timetable, aspiring to beat their personal best!
