- Our Healthy Eating policies and catering provision;
- The Health Education dimension of our PSHCE programme, including strands on drugs, smoking and alcohol;
- Our provision of the Key Stage 2 Five60 programme to increase levels of activity and promote healthy eating, in partnership with the South Derbyshire Active Sports Partnership
- Our extra-curricular programme related to sports and well-being, developed in tandem with external providers, such as Soccerstars and Progressive Sports;
- Our celebration of sporting achievement including personal fitness and competitive sport;
- Our Bikeability (for UKS2) and Balanceability (for EYFS) training, provided through the South Derbyshire Active Sports Partnership;
- Our activity provision available for unstructured times such as lunch and break times;
- Our residential visits in both Lower and Upper Key Stage 2;
- Our curricular programme related to food preparation and nutrition;
