Healthy Schools

At Lilliput CE Infant School we recognise the importance of a healthy lifestyle and diet and understand that establishing a balanced diet in childhood helps to promote healthy eating habits for life. We believe that healthy children are best able to take full advantage of the educational opportunities that the school provides.

Our school community encourages pupils to develop the skills and attitudes that will help them make informed healthy choices both in and out of school. This is why we felt it was so important to choose a hot school meal provider who would be able to work closely alongside us, to ensure that the food provided would not only support our school ethos and healthy eating policy but also be enjoyed by the children! In order to reflect the importance of healthy eating the Governing Body will ensure that food provided in the school and advice given to pupils promote a healthy lifestyle.

Healthy eating is explicitly addressed within the Science, PSCHE, PE and D&T curriculum. Each curriculum subject will be developing a range of skills and understanding that will contribute towards these areas. There are also opportunities for cross-curricular coverage of healthy lifestyles. A wide range of teaching approaches and resources are used to deliver the curriculum. Visitors who are able to support the class teachers include the school nurse and dentist. All visits are planned into the curriculum to support the work being done – visits do not take the place of teachers’ input.
