First Awarded to Great Leighs Primary School in 2010
Renewed for 2014
Being at Great Leighs school is not all about learning and fun! We are healthy too. We believe strongly that happy healthy children learn, grow and develop into wonderful people. Our children agreed, with the help of the school council, that our school policy was to have a healthy fruit or vegetable based snack Monday to Thursday and, as is healthy in life, a treat day would be Friday. We also have a Healthy Crew who meet half termly to discuss how we can continually make the school a healthier and happier place.
Please click here to view a powerpoint that the Healthy Crew presented to the school to promote healthy snacks and good hygiene.
