Healthy Schools Statement 

Southfields Primary School is committed to promoting the health and well-being of its pupils, staff and the wider school community. We actively encourage children and staff to develop positive attitudes towards health and well-being. We do this by making a commitment to be kind to each other, provide an engaging curriculum and by showing respect for ourselves and others around us.

Food and nutrition is a key aspect within our school. We provide all children with a new water bottle each year and actively encourage them to bring this in each day. Parents are able to order milk for our EYFS and Year 1 children and the whole of EYFS and KS1 are provided with fresh fruit or vegetables each day as their snack. At lunch times children have a wide selection of fruit and salad items to choose from to accompany their meal. 

To encourage physical activity amongst our children, they have a wide selection of PE equipment to choose from to allow them to play in groups, teams or individually, playtime staff organise and oversee these games during lunch time. 

Time outdoors is also encouraged through curriculum lessons which, in turn, provides children with fresh air, the use of natural resources and more opportunity to move and use their gross motor skills. Year 1 children take part in Forest School sessions where movement, play and exploration are key. 

Emotional health and well-being is promoted by providing relevant information and resources to equip our pupils with the skills and attitudes to make informed decisions about their health, that will in turn benefit their attainment and provide a positive learning environment.  

Please see the dates of our upcoming Healthy Schools Meetings and the minutes of these meetings that detail our exciting plans.
