Hailey School recognises the importance of a healthy diet and the significant connection between healthy eating and a pupil’s ability to learn effectively and achieve high standards at school.
We take a whole school approach to healthy eating to ensure that messages taught in the curriculum are echoed and reinforced by the type of food and drink provided in school. We are proud of our school meals and the positive feedback we get about them from parents and pupils, which shows that healthy can also be tasty!
Food, cooking and nutrition are taught at the appropriate level in all classes and pupils are taught the basic principles of a healthy, varied and balanced diet, as well as how to prepare simple dishes and understand where their food comes from.
