Healthy Schools

Priesthorpe is a nationally recognised Healthy School. Our Healthy Schools status was revalidated in June 2013. The physical and emotional health and wellbeing of all pupils is our priority.

Students’ physical health is catered for through a variety of avenues which include PE lessons as well as extra curricular opportunities. All students in Key Stage 3 & 4 have access to at least 2 hours of PE per week.

Priesthorpe provides health advice for students through the delivery of the Change4life initiatives.

All students are encouraged to drink water in school and are allowed to drink water in most classroom settings. Fizzy drinks are not permitted in school.

The school encourages healthy eating and offers a variety of 'Meal Deal' options in the school canteen to allow students to eat a balanced meal at lunchtime. The food served in school meets the Government's new food-based standards for schools. Crisps and chocolate are not sold at school.

Occasional fund raising activities take place during the year where ‘treats’ can be purchased.

Priesthorpe also ensures that Emotional Health and Well being of students is a focus. Students have access to advice and support from a variety of people including the OASIS staff, Pastoral staff and other agencies who form part of the Cluster Care and Guidance Panel.
