We are a Healthy School!
Parkgate achieved our ‘Healthy Schools’ status in the summer of 2007. We all worked as a team to achieve this by focussing on Personal, Social and Health Education, Healthy Eating, Physical Activity and Emotional Health and Wellbeing.
We have held healthy eating workshops and changed to healthy breaktime snacks with a fruit shop every playtime. We offer a huge range of different sports activities and out of school clubs and our teams regularly play in sports matches. We have joined in with national initiatives such as ‘Walk to school week’ and ‘Anti-bullying fortnight’, and use the SEAL resources (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) in our assemblies and weekly PSHE lessons.
We are always looking for ways to enrich the pupils’ experiences at Parkgate and have used Healthy Schools as a central focus to ensure our pupils are happy and healthy.
