Here at Reinwood Infant and Nursery School, we are very keen to promote good health among our pupils. Our school lunches are excellent - providing healthy, nutritious and tasty food for your children; in fact, we won a Healthy Eating Gold Award for their standard.
For those bringing packed lunches, we encourage healthy contents, such as sandwiches, fruit and a drink - no sweets, bars of chocolate or cans of fizzy drinks. Milk is provided at mid-morning break, with children being given a piece of fruit in the afternoon.
We also encourage children to drink water throughout the day, as research proves that regular intake of water increases concentration levels.
National Healthy Schools Programme
The National Healthy Schools Programme was launched in October 1999 and is a joint initiative between the Department of Health and the Department for Children, Schools and Families.
It is an exciting long-term initiative that promotes the link between good health, behaviour and achievement. It is about creating happier, healthier children who do better in learning and in life.
By embracing this programme, Reinwood Infant and Nursery School was awarded National Healthy School Status (NHSS) in 2006.
Kirklees Healthy School Gold Standard
The Kirklees Healthy School Programme is part of a National Programme which aims to help schools become healthier. In 2006 we were awarded the Kirklees Healthy School Standard Gold (KHSSG).
Activemark 2008 rewards delivery of the national PE and Sport Strategy.
Schools receive the mark if at least 90% of pupils are doing at least 2 hours of high quality PE and school sport a week.
At Reinwood, we always promote health and happiness for all our children in a wide and varied way. To further support their education, every Summer Term we organise a ‘Healthy week’. This consists of our pupils trying new activities such as 'skip2bfit' and taekwondo. In 2019 we were lucky enough to have a visit from a professional athlete who took pupils through a fitness circuit and lead an inspirational assembly. Watch this space for the exciting activities planned for this year...
