Healthy Schools



 
We are delighted to confirm we have achieved Bronze in the Healthy Schools Rating Scheme.

 

As a school, we thrive to help children and young people to grow healthily, safely and responsibly.

The aim of this page is to share lots of ideas that can contribute to a healthy lifestyle. There will be information based on ways to keep fit and healthy, both at school and at home.

 

We would love to see any healthy meals you have created, as well as ways you are  staying active at home too so please share any pictures via Dojo or Twitter @YewTreeSandwell.

Healthy Lunchbox Ideas

 

Whether squeezing it in before the school run in the morning or before bed on busy midweek evenings, preparing your child's lunchbox can seem like just another thing on the list.

 

School meals are a great choice, but if you do make a packed lunch for your child then the NHS website below has got you covered with a range of quick, easy, healthier lunchbox ideas and tips.
