Healthy Lifestyles at Holbrook

At Holbrook we have a positive approach towards promoting a healthy lifestyle, working closely with pupils, staff, parents and others.
Pupils are encouraged to walk or cycle to school, eat healthy lunches and take part in regular physical activity.
Parents are informed about local events to promote healthy lifestyles.

Good health and well-being are vital if young people are to enjoy, achieve and reach their full potential.

Holbrook Ofsted Report 2014 says the curriculum ‘…contributes to pupils’ well-being and personal development. For example, during the inspection pupils were enjoying ‘Health Week’ and were learning about the importance of an active lifestyle and healthy eating.’

What can you do?

Your whole family can log onto the Change 4 Life web site on www.nhs.uk/change4life where you can sign up for free money off vouchers and recipes with their smart swaps campaign.
Sign up for the wide range of activities after school.

Decide to do some activity as a family – like going for a walk in the park or nearby countryside, cycling, swimming, playing in the park together, bowling, etc.

Go shopping all together and choose healthy options – there are lots of ideas on our ‘Tips for Parents’ information sheet.

Look on the Coventry Cook and Eat Well web site at www.cookandeatwell.co.uk for healthy cooking tips and local information.

Healthy Lifestyles at Holbrook

With good food habits and daily physical activity we will be well on the way to a healthy lifestyle.

Easy to say, but sometimes not so easy to do! So throughout the school year we will be adding links for support, guidance and helpful information.
