Healthy Schools

Crompton Primary recently achieved the Diamond Level Healthy School Award after implementing a range of initiatives to support the health and wellbeing of its pupils. One of the targets was to increase the percentage of children that say they enjoy the range of lunchtime physical activities from 85% to 90%. In order to achieve this a variety of measures were put into place.  The playground was divided into clear 'zones' so that children have a choice of activities. The school invested in games equipment to be used at lunchtimes only and children were made responsible for looking after the equipment.  Lunchtime staff were trained to support the children to play a variety of games and a rota for ball games was put into place. Sports Pals continue to develop a range of outdoor games to play with different classes.  The school climbing frame has also been replaced with similar apparatus to promote healthy physical activity at lunchtime.

In 2014, in order to achieve the Platinum Level Healthy School Award¬†ne of the school priorities was to increase the percentage of children engaged in an extra-curricular physically-based activity from 30% to 50%.¬† The achievement of this target has had a positive impact on the schoolís extra-curricular sports and dance provision with professionals recruited to enhance the variety of these clubs.¬† Furthermore, 100% of children identify regular exercise as essential to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

In 2013 the school was awarded Healthy School Gold Status by implementing a range of initiatives to support the health and wellbeing of our pupils.  A key improvement in our approach to breaktimes is to operate Playground Pals and Sports Leaders.   The initiative helps to seek out isolated children and integrate them into play activities.  It also empowers children to plan and deliver sporting activities to their peers, impacting positively on children's health and utilising sport equipment more widely.
