HLHL

                               

In January 2018, Healthy Learning, Healthy Lives (HLHL) replaced the Healthy Schools programme in Doncaster.

Vision

Health and well-being for all children at Brooke Primary Academy.

Emotional Health and Wellbeing

Intent

At Brooke Primary Academy we would like all children to be healthy and happy. We would like all children to be able to express their emotions and to be able to deal with their emotions in a positive way. We would like all children to be able to build positive relationships. If children have good mental health is will help them develop socially, emotionally, mentally and physically.

Implementation

Emotional health is covered through our PSHE scheme of work (Jigsaw) and interventions that we have got in place in school.
The interventions are called:
• Horrizons- which looks at dealing with the loss of someone special to them, either by death or separation.

• Lego Group- is aimed at building friendships, been able to work within a small group and communication.

• Bags of Character- is a program that looks at dealing with emotions, team building, dealing/managing conflict and building self-esteem for individuals.

Impact

When children leave Brooke we want them to:
• Feel happy and positive about themselves
• Enjoy life
• Learn well
• Have healthy relationships with family and friends
• Can manage own emotions
• Be able to cope with life’s challenges

Healthy Eating

In addition to the intent, implementation and impact, healthy eating is taught through our PSHE Jigsaw scheme, Design and Technology: Nutrition and Science Years 2-6.
Intent
• To involve the whole community in developing and maintaining healthy eating and drinking habits.
• To have pleasant and sociable dining experience which enhances the social development of all children.
• To encourage a balanced diet.
• To encourage fluid intake with an easily accessible water supply throughout the day.
• To take into account and accommodate dietary requirements.
• To ensure high standards of hygiene amongst the children.

WOW

We encourage our pupils to travel actively to school. WOW is a pupil-led initiative where children self-report how they get to school every day using the interactive WOW Travel Tracker. If they travel sustainably (walk, cycle or scoot) once a week for a month, they get rewarded with a badge.

The launch video explains what WOW is: WOW 2021/22 launch video on Vimeo.
