At St Francis Catholic Primary School, we recognise that the health and well-being of children is vital to their growth and development; it contributes to their long term success and achievements. Through Healthy Schools we can help our pupils to reach their potential by building on a solid foundation of health to do well in learning and in life.
We try to promote health and well-being for all of our children and staff. Our PSHE curriculum, after school clubs, school lunches, PE lessons, Science lessons, workshops and visitors all contribute to the health of our pupils.
We believe that proper nutrition and fluid intake are essential to all members of the school community if they are to fulfil their potential in life. Proper nutrition is necessary for good health and effective teaching and learning.
We successfully regained our Healthy Schools status in May 2021, under the four areas of:
- PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education)
- Healthy Eating
- Physical Education
- SEMH (Social, Emotional and Mental Health)

We were also awarded the Mindmate Friendly School status.
