Lewannick School has just been awarded Healthy Schools status for the next year. Being a healthy school is important as it acknowledges that all pupils deserve to have the opportunity to be physically, mentally, and socially healthy and to learn in an environment that enables them to reach their full potential. The school setting is the ideal place to start and to make that connection. Healthy young people are better learners.
A healthy school is no longer only about healthy eating and physical activity; creating a healthy school is about working together, going beyond the classroom and school walls, and involving the broader school community. A healthy school is organized so that pupils are supported to be physically, mentally and socially healthy to enable them to acquire the skills and knowledge needed to achieve life-long success.
We are a Fairtrade school. This means we raise awareness of the Fairtrade cause in various ways, including using Fairtrade products in the staff room and selling them in our shop.
