Healthy Schools

As well as providing delicious and healthy school dinners we are committed to supporting the children and the school community to live healthy and active lifestyles.

We have a weekly Healthy Lifestyle question for our children to enter. Winners receive a certificate and a prize. For children who consistently have balanced and healthy food choices in their packed lunch have the opportunity to win the Golden Packed Lunch award too.

In July 2016 the whole school took part in Healthy Lifestyle Day. Each class competed in a New Ash Green Bake Off style competition judged by the Headteacher and Governors. There were a variety of dishes from pastries to salads and even ice cream! The winning team was RW5 Golden Eagles with their tasty courgette cup cakes with lime drizzle with each child winning an ice skating voucher. Everyone is keen for New Ash Green Bake Off to return in 2017!
