At Keir Hardie we are always seeking to promote healthy and sustainable lifestyles. Cycling and scooting are two of the pleasures that many of our children enjoy and as a school we encourage children to cycle or scoot to school on a regular basis. The pictures below show how many bikes and scooters we have in our storage racks on a normal day.
We have the Activemark, and all our children experience at least 2 hours of PE every week.
We have the full range of sports clubs and activities, including KS1 multi-skills, KS2 multi-skills, football, basketball and dance classes for KS1 and Year 6.
Key Stage 2 classes take part in a cycle training and road safety course.
We have had the local authority’s Food in Schools project recently to update our menu, and children find now our menu is healthier.
All pupils have free school meals for the next two years.
Children learn about how the body works, how to care for it and what makes a healthy lifestyle through the curriculum.
We participate in all the “walk to school” events and have achieved a Bronze Award for our School Travel Plan.
