HEALTHY SCHOOLS DECLARATION
WELLBEING AT YSGOL Y PRESELI
Every pupil is involved in a programme of personal and social education which offers health and careers education as well as other experiences including work experience and enterprise. All opportunities for study are in line with the requirements of the National Curriculum. Ysgol y Preseli has already achieved the Healthy Schools award phase 5 and is now working towards the National Quality Award. The school has achieved the Careers Mark Cymru.
At Preseli, morning assembly is held for different year groups or different key stages and promotes the spiritual development of all pupils in a sensitive and careful manner. A ‘thought of the day’ is held in classes which do not have morning assembly. This contributes to the spiritual and moral ethos of the school.
HEALTHY EATING AT YSGOL Y PRESELI
The Phase 5 Healthy Schools Award already achieved by Preseli is a commitment by staff and pupils to promoting good health, positive behaviour and achievement across all areas of school life. Fresh drinking water is available at all times during the day and the canteen offers healthy snacks during break and lunchtime.
Breakfast is available early in the morning which includes healthy cereals, fruits and snacks. Water, milk and low calorie drinks are offered to pupils. Individuals who bring a packed lunch to school are encouraged to eat healthily. Issues regarding the provision of food are discussed by the School Council. An outside eating area called ‘Y Pantri’ offers another option for Preseli pupils at break and lunchtime.
