We believe in giving all pupils, irrespective of their academic or physical ability, the opportunity to discover and develop their physical potential through a balanced and developmental programme of activities. We do so in the belief that physical education in a safe, supportive and challenging environment is a vital component in the development of children’s physical and emotional health and well-being.
This, we believe, includes qualities such as enjoyment, tolerance, co-operation and the development of expertise. We aim to provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness.
Re: Health and Wellbeing Programme
Our school has been working in partnership with the London PE and School Sports Network to deliver a health and wellbeing programme taking place in primary schools across Southwark.
The programme is a one-day session delivered through PE and practical activities to help students understand the importance of a healthy lifestyle and to combat obesity levels in the borough. Currently, Southwark has some of the highest rates of obesity in Britain with 43% of children in year 6 leaving school obese.
The programme focuses on the Eatwell Guide, food groups, energy balance, food labels, healthy eating targets, active targets and pulse rates.
As your child has taken part in the programme, we invite you to attend a parent nutrition workshop in school on Friday 29th September at 3.45pm – 4.45pm. If possible, children can attend to show parents what they have learnt on the programme.
All parents are invited to attend the nutrition workshop as we feel this is an essential part of the programme will help the children to continue with their healthy eating and active lifestyles.
