The community of Templeton School is fully committed to the Health Promoting Schools Scheme having successfully passed our Phase 3 evaluation in April 2015.
All food and drink prepared for the children during school time and After School Club follows Pembrokeshire County Council healthy eating guidelines.
During break times we have a ‘fruit only’ policy. Children may either purchase a piece of fruit from our ‘Fruit Tuckshop’ or bring their own from home.
We work hard to promote the health and wellbeing of the children and staff at school.
We ask parents of children who bring a packed lunch to school to make every effort to ensure that the packed lunch contains a healthy eating and drinking selection. This is consistent with our Health Promoting Policy.
Drinking plenty of cold, fresh water helps to develop concentration skills and the well-being of the individual. We ensure that our children have access to cold, fresh drinking water throughout the school day.
Physical fitness is very important at Templeton School. Our children get plenty of exercise through their PE lessons, the use of our extensive grounds and facilities during break and lunchtimes and through our wide range of extra-curricular clubs including running, rugby, football, netball, rounders, cricket and athletics.
Our pupils take part in the ‘30, 40, 50 Mile Challenge’ which encourages children to regularly run or walk a mile and receive award as they pass each 10 mile marker. We organise running/walking sessions every morning before school to help to develop children’s fitness levels.
