We have been revalidated with our Healthy schools status in April 2016 and are now focusing on our chosen priorities of well being and emotional health which we hope to achieve in the next two years.
What's Going on in School?
At Hatch Warren Infant School a healthy attitude to life and learning underpins everything that we do! However, we also make health and health issues a specific focus in terms of teaching and learning. This is achieved directly through our comprehensive Personal, Social, Health Education and Citizenship (P.S.H.E & C) and is reinforced through many other areas of the curriculum.
We have achieved the Healthy Schools Award and have successfully completed the annual review. We continue to attain the Activemark Award annually. This makes us healthier and happier. Each year group is taught the importance of a healthy lifestyle, including diet and exercise, from finding out all about ourselves and our bodies in Reception to understanding the importance of the five food groups and a balanced diet in Year 2!
As well as the importance of physical well being and fitness, the emotional development and understanding of their role as a global citizen is also imparted to the children. Our Values education covers a wide range of important issues, helping to broaden and shape the children's understanding of their own principles and values and how these have an effect in the wider world. We dedicate a lot of time to developing empathy skills talking about how we feel. We encourage all children to make good choices.
