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:
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.
