Last week saw our Healthy Eating Week as we tied into the British Nutrition Foundation’s national Healthy Eating Week dedicated to encourage organisations across the UK (including workplaces, universities, and schools) to focus on healthy eating and drinking, and physical activity, and celebrate healthy living.

The week saw special tutor time activities, assemblies, lessons and activities to draw students attention to the benefits of a good diet on their learning, physicality and length of life.

One activity saw students compete to judge the salt and sugar content of popular foods – ranging from Haribos to Meat Feast Pizzas – and the bags salts and sugars were enough to shock many students into reflecting on what they did eat and what they should eat.

Matt Allman, Headteacher, said: “An important part of the education we provide is to make sure our children go on to live long and healthy lives and this week was all about that. We want our children to be here a long, long time and if you are what you eat then we want it to be something healthy!”
