We are delighted to have been awarded “Enhanced Healthy Schools” status for all the work we do to support children, staff, and families keep active and healthy, in mind and body. As part of that we have developed a school “Travel Plan”. This has also been accredited and we have been given a Bronze award. This is particularly for our 3PR, which encourages safe and active travel to and from school.
This reflects on our ongoing commitment to encouraging good physical and emotional health amongst our pupils, staff, and wider community.
- We are working closely with " The South Essex Parking Partnership" to help tackle some of our parking issues outside the school.
- Park and stride permits can be go from the office to allow us to park in Canvey Island football ground.
- Children who arrive at the designated area either on foot, bicycle or scooter will be awarded a token for their class.
- The tokens will be counted at the end of each month and the winning class will be awarded the 3PR Cup. At the end of the school year the class with the most tokens will become the champions.
We are a healthy school and therefore encourage the children to eat a healthy balanced diet. Every child receives a fruit snack daily.
Menus that have been nutritionally balanced are available to all children and staff with plenty of alternatives being made available for all needs and preferences.
