Hatchlands Primary School


Healthy Schools

At Hatchlands we are delighted to be taking part in the Surrey Healthy Schools approach by implementing, identifying and developing effective practice in promoting positive physical, emotional and mental health and wellbeing.

The approach identifies 5 key themes:


  1. Whole School Approach towards the promotion of positive health and wellbeing.
  2. Personal, Health, Social, Economics, Education (PSHE) curriculum (including health and wellbeing, relationships, sex, drugs, staying safe and financial capability education)
  3. Healthy eating (including cooking and health eating in the curriculum, food provision - school meals, packed lunches, pre and post school club food provision and cooking clubs)
  4. Physical activity (including physical education and school sport)
  5. Health: Emotional wellbeing and mental health. 


Learning through health and wellbeing enables children and young people to make informed decisions in order to improve their mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing.


Hatchlands Primary School aims to provide an environment that promotes the health and well-being of pupils, parents and staff by ensuring that all exercise, food provision and food messages are healthy and consistent.


Hatchlands School staff recognise and are committed to the fact that healthier children are happier and learn more effectively. We adopt many techniques to offer health and wellbeing, such as:


Walking to school

We actively encouarge children to walk to school and operate a daily walking bus to and from Donyngs Leisure Centre.

Mindfulness is a practice that has been around for thousands of years. Mindfulness meditation, at its simplest, is paying attention to what is happening in the present moment. It may be what you’re feeling, hearing, or anything else you notice.  Click here for 10 mindfulness exercises for kids
