Newton Tony Primary School (CE VC)

'Love One Another As I Have Loved You' (John 15:12)

* Badgers Swimming Lessons start Tuesday 16th April *

 

Newton Tony is a healthy school and we are proud to be working toward our Healthy School Award.  Healthy Eating was an important element in us also gaining the School Eco Green Flag Silver Award. As part of the Personal, Social, Health Education, (PSHE) and Design and Technology curriculum, children learn about what makes a healthy balanced diet and how important it is that we eat food from each of the categories. 

School Lunches

 Our school lunches are provided by: Hampshire County Council  https://www.hants.gov.uk/educationandlearning/hc3s/education-catering/primary

Children have a choice of two different hot lunches (one vegetarian option), hot jacket potato with a filling or a packed lunch box (in the Summer). Click on the following link to see more information and menu choices Hampshire Lunch menus 

Children can also choose to bring a packed lunch box from home.  We encourage you all to bring  a healthy lunch box to school. This could include:

  • a sandwich or wrap with a  savoury filling
  • a cereal bar or the equivalent
  • fruit
  • fruit juice or water.

You should also bring a water bottle to school in order for you to drink when needed. Fruit is provided on a daily basis if you are in YR, 1 and 2. Any child can bring in a healthy snack to eat at break time.

Milk teeth

We encourage children to brush their teeth twice a day, and not straight after they have eaten. Tooth decay can cause pain and worry, even in small children. When it comes to children’s teeth, regular brushing and visits to the dentist are important. Every year we have an oral health team visit and provide all children in YR/Y1/Y2 with a toothbrush and toothpaste to take home.

What, when and how your child eats and drinks is also important.  Help teach your child how to look after their teeth. Follow the link to watch a video and get more information. https://milk.co.uk/tiny-teeth-booklet/

Bikeability

Year 5 and Year 6 children, have the opportunity to participate in the Bikeability programme.  Bikeability is today’s cycle training programme. It’s like cycling proficiency, but better! It’s about gaining practical skills and understanding how to cycle on today’s roads. https://www.connectingwiltshire.co.uk/getting-around/cycling/training/

Drug Education

Drug education is a statutory part of RSHE and the science curriculum for schools in England and is delivered as part of PSHE education.  The definition of ‘drugs’ used by schools includes all over the counter and prescription medicines, all legal drugs including tobacco, alcohol, volatile substances and all illegal drugs. The aim of drug education is to provide planned and structured learning opportunities for pupils to develop their knowledge, skills and attitudes about all drugs and appreciate the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, relating this to their own and others’ actions.  For more information: https://www.wiltshirehealthyschools.org/core-themes/pshee/drugs-alcohol-and-tobacco/
