Healthy Schools

Water Bottles in School

Based on the information contained on the Food Standards Agency website. It is recommended to parents/carers that children should bring a named water bottle, of the type that often comes with a lunch box, rather than the thin transparent bottles which are sold pre-packed with water in them from the supermarkets.

However, parents who prefer to re-fill the pre-packed bottles should be advised to check regularly for signs of any cracks, dents etc

Advanced Healthy Schools Award

I am pleased to announce that Green Lane has achieved the Advanced Healthy Schools Award! This is a fantastic accomplishment and a credit to the children and staff at the school. Special thanks go out to Miss Herrington with support from Mrs. Bean and Mrs Pitchfork for all the hard work that went into putting all the evidence together.

Also, special thanks go to all the staff and children for their contributions.

Class 3/4 Visited Eureka

They took part in a Fast Food Fun Workshop and learned about the eat well plate.

The A - Team

We have successfully implemented a child led active playtime system. The A-Team are responsible for choosing the activities, setting up the equipment and running them smoothly at playtime and lunchtime.

Dining Room Improvements

We have been very fortunate to receive a grant to promote healthy eating in our school. School Council were asked how they thought the money should be spent and they came up with some excellent ideas. As a result we have bought some new, colourful trolleys, a salad bar and jacket potato oven. The children are very excited about being able to choose their own salads and jacket potato fillings.

Healthy Superheroes

"Hi, my name is Oscar the Orange and I have been brought into this world to make you strong and healthy in all possible ways! All the vitamins are delicious and incredibly good for you............. soooo ENJOY!"

We created our own fruit and vegetable Superheroes. We thought about their character, their strengths and how they would save us from the 'Junk Food Baddies'. Here are some of our super Superheroes and the infamous Oscar Orange!

Fitness Fun

On 19th and 20th May, we held our annual Fitness Fun morning. The whole school had a fun filled active morning.

Sports Relief

As part of Sports Relief we all pledged to run or walk a mile.

Annual Sports Day

Our annual sports day was another way to show how fit and healthy we are at Green Lane.
