Llangewydd Junior School

Healthy Schools

The Healthy Schools initiative plays a large role in Llangewydd Junior School, encouraging the development of schools which promote health before, during and after school hours. Llangewydd has been part of this scheme for over 12 years and were awarded the National Quality Award, and we will be undergoing a two year reassessment this Summer term. The continued hard work from the school shows the wonderful commitment to the holistic approach we use at Llangewydd, to ensure all children develop mentally, emotionally and physically.

Advice and guidance is offered to Llangewydd Juniors through publications and national networking events that Mrs Jones and Mr Clode regularly attend. The leadership of this scheme has been distributed to all staff members to ensure ownership and a whole school approach has been adopted.

Llangewydd Junior School has developed policies which promote health following the Welsh government's guidelines. These policies used in Llangewydd contribute to the promotion of healthy lifestyles by considering a range of actions on particular health topics, such as Food and Fitness, Mental Health and Well being, Environment, Personal Development, Substance use and misuse, Hygiene and Safety.

The children in Llangewydd play a vital role in the ethos and environment of  "Healthy Schools" and each child understands the importance of living a healthy lifesyle to ensure a high level of well-being.
