Healthy Schools

St John's is committed to being a Healthy School and as such has healthy snacks available at both sites for children to purchase.


Please try to ensure that your child's lunch box is a healthy one. Definitely no fizzy drinks please!

Staying healthy is very important. Eating the right foods and exercising enough will keep you fit and healthy.


Here are a few things to try:

1.Eat at least 5 portions of fruit and veg every day.

2.Drink lots of water, every day. It is good for you, good for your skin, and helps you to concentrate.

3.Always eat breakfast. Having a healthy breakfast can help your concentration at school. Try cereals that have less sugar, and more fibre, and you'll feel better all day.

4.Exercise! Join one of our after school sports clubs and get moving. Or you could join a swimming/football/athletics club.

5.Eat fish. It's good for you, low in fat, and according to those clever scientists, it even makes you clever!

6.Cut down on sugary sweets and drinks, and lose the crisps! Too much fat, sugar and salt isn't good for you. Try and bring a healthy lunchbox for school. Fruit juice or water are better than fizzy drinks, and carrot sticks or cherry tomatoes are a good alternative to salty crisps. Try it, you may even enjoy it.

7.Switch to wholemeal or brown bread. White bread has very little goodness in it and isn't as tasty as brown. Don't forget to eat your crusts. We can't promise they'll make your hair curl, but they will make you healthier.



If YOU have any healthy recipes that we could put on our Healthy Schools website, bring them into school, and we'll include them on this page.
