Healthy Schools

At Riverview Infant School we recognise that a healthy school is one that is successful in helping pupils to do their best, building on their achievements and where the children feel safe and happy.  We promote physical and emotional health by providing accessible and relevant information, and equipping children with the skills and attitudes to make informed decisions about their health. We understand that healthy, happy children learn better, so raises levels of pupil achievements and standards within the school.

Therefore, we ensure that the healthy schools values are covered through different subjects in the curriculum across the school. Such as:

  • PSHE topics on healthy eating and developing a child’s emotional health.
  • P.E topics on fitness and offering the children access to try a range of different sports.
  • RE, where we discuss the cultural diversity of the community and teach the children how to be respectful of others around us, which helps to make all children feel happier and safer within our school.


Healthy eating is big part of keeping a child healthy. Our kitchen provides well balanced meals and our lunchtime staff help encourage healthy food choices. Please encourage healthy eating at home and school!  Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and we want to encourage children to have extra nutrients before coming to school.

It’s great to see that so many children have the free universal school meals.  Remember for those whose children are not eating school dinners this website offers some great ideas for packed lunches. Please remember that we do not allow any foods containing nuts as we have children with severe nut allergies.–lunchbox-picnic.aspx


Also please remember to send a named water bottle into school daily especially with the weather beginning to get warmer!.
