At Rhyl, we are very proud to have been accredited as a Healthy School every two years since 2007 and our current Healthy School Recognition continues until January 2020. This followed a rigorous Health and Well-Being Review and recognises the fantastic work we do to promote our children’s health and well-being.
We currently hold the Healthy School Gold Award as a result of our work showing how we help to improve children’s health and well-being, particularly by eating fewer crisps, drinking fewer fizzy drinks and being more physically active.
Our current goals are:
- To deepen parents’ and carers’ knowledge about nutrition
- To provide opportunities for food education and cookery through the Community Kitchen
- To set up more mindfulness sessions for parents and carers and supporting other Camden schools to develop mindfulness across their schools led by our Family Liaison Worker
Sports at Rhyl
Sports are a great way of keeping healthy and active. Each child must take part in PE each week but we also have extracurricular activities to support this. Year 4 have swimming lessons throughout the year. We also have football teams for boys and girls, a lunchtime sports coach as well as a partnership with Arsenal FC who work with one year group each week as well as providing after school sports clubs.
