Healthy Schools

Hatton Park Primary School recognises that a healthy school is one that is successful in helping pupils to do their best and build on their achievements. It is committed to ongoing improvement and development. It promotes physical and emotional health and wellbeing by providing accessible and relevant information and equipping pupils with the skills and attitudes to make informed decisions about their health based on positive attitudes and information. We will liaise with outside agencies to ensure all information is current and relevant to our pupils and staff.


It is of paramount importance to us that we encourage our children to independently adopt a healthy lifestyle. We are committed to encouraging and developing positive attitudes towards health, fitness and well-being through an engaging curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities.


We understand the importance of prioritising health, fitness and well-being to promote positive lifestyles, which then impact on pupil achievement and improving standards through a physical, emotional and social environment that is conducive to learning.


Our Aims:


  • To promote a whole school approach to a healthy lifestyle

  • To educate children about the importance of looking after their mental health and well-being

  • To encourage children and staff to make informed decisions about  healthy lifestyles based on positive attitudes and information, in partnership with specialist providers such as Food Smart, The Active Mile, Hunts School Partnership and the Cambridgeshire PSHE service

  • To promote safe working and playing relationships and environment both inside and outside of school

  • To provide high-quality Physical Education and School Sport and promote physical activity as part of a lifelong healthy lifestyle

  • To continue to develop playtimes and lunchtimes so that children can access a range of equipment and facilities

  • To increase the children’s knowledge and understanding of the importance of water in their diet and ensure access to clean water throughout the day so that all children and staff stay hydrated

  • To enable trained Play Leaders to facilitate positive, active play for younger children

  • To develop the teaching of Food Technology aspect of the Design and Technology Curriculum with regard to Healthy Eating, making links to PSHE and science

  • To continue to provide a portion of fruit or vegetable every day for children in Reception and Key Stage One

  • To encourage children in Key Stage Two to choose a healthy snack at morning break time

  • For children to learn how to develop good relationships and respect the differences between people.


We asked the children for their thoughts on what makes our school a healthy school. Here are some of their ideas:


  • Learning about the Zones of Regulation

  • Support with friendships (social skills)

  • Healthy snacks available in KS1

  • Water bottles in class

  • Rules about suncream, hats/scarves/gloves

  • Healthy foods when cooking in DT

  • Lots of clubs to stay healthy, including Dance, Running. Football, Gymnastics and Forest School.

  • Hot dinners are balanced as they have vegetables, fruits, a fun dessert and healthy meat too.
