In 2018 Tonge Moor School achieved the Bronze Healthy School award. This award recognises the work we do as a school to promote healthy minds and bodies. We encourage healthy eating through our healthy school meals and healthy snacks at break time. The school ensures that packed lunches are healthy and balanced through guidelines issued to parents. Our Healthy lunchbox initiative provided support and guidance for parents while monitoring and rewarding healthy lunchboxes.
We promote healthy minds through daily mindfulness activities during Star Time. These include breathing exercises and relaxing visualisations and meditations. Each class has a worry box and children know the adults they can talk to if they need support.
Through the school values we encourage children the importance of relationships and the focus on the way we interact with and treat others. These values pervade our curriculum and our everyday life at school.
The PSHE Curriculum ‘Live Well. Learn Well’ ensures that children make healthy choices, now how to keep safe and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
