Heygreen Primary is proud to announce that as a school we have recently (March 2015) been awarded  with the ‘Healthy School Award’.  This is in recognition of the school providing a comprehensive, well-balanced ‘healthy lifestyles’ curriculum.

Healthy School Council

This is our Healthy School Council which were elected in January 2015. Since being elected, the council have launched a healthy packed lunch poster competition, spoke to the children regarding the quality of school dinners, created a favourite school meal display and are currently working on a travel plan to encourage more children to walk or cycle to school during the Summer term.

Class Assemblies

As part of our healthy school curriculum, every year the children participate in a 10 week block of class assemblies, which teaches the children about having a healthy lifestyle.

Ready Steady Cook

This morning Year 5 pupils, along with other children from across the school, took part in a ‘Ready Steady Cook’ challenge run by Chartwells.

The children, who were supported by our very own Miss Goll (Year 5) and Miss Lambert (Year 1), were tasked to make a healthy but tasty meal within fifteen minutes using the ingredients available in front of them. As a school, we also learnt lots of amazing information about healthy food options and how they can improve our health. The Red Team made a wonderful coconut chicken curry with couscous, while the Green Team produced mouthwatering barbecue vegetable raps and spicy rice.
