Please take a look at the video above. Our children worked really hard growing and baking their very own produce!

Healthy Schools Programme

As a school we continually support children to develop healthy behaviours and last year, Rise Park was awarded a 'Health and Wellbeing' accreditation.
Below are just a few of the things that are have been in place within school which contributes to our health-promoting environment.



Did you know...

  • In school we have a Smoothie Bar (50p each) which is a great way to help your children to their 5-a-day smiley
  • Early Years and Key Stage 1 are involved in the School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme (SFVS), which encourages healthy habits and contributes to their 5-a-day.
    Part of this scheme is preparing and eating the fruit/veg independently (they can do it!). Therefore, we encourage all year groups to bring fruit as a healthy playtime snack to continue these healthy habits.
  • In the Summer term, Mobile Smiles will be visiting us again. This is a mobile dentist unit which provides oral health education and encourages children to take ownership of maintaining personal hygiene and manage oral health. This also includes child friendly resources.
  • Throughout school we grow our own fruit and vegetables. Some of which has previously been used in school meals! This gives children first hand experiences and a deep understanding of food provenance, self-sufficiency and healthy eating.

Healthy Selfies

Thank you so much to the parents and children that brought in the #HealthySelfies.
They look brilliant! All children that took part have been given a voucher for a free smoothie which they will be given on the 24th March. All of the selfies will go on display in the Key Stage 1 hall and a few highlights will be on temporary display during Parents Evening this term. 

Calling all hula-hoopers...
Parents, carers and children... dare to join the hula challenge? Do you think you could be a hula hero? During our next parents evening, we will be setting up a challenge to see who can hula for the longest!
Times will be recorded and prizes will be given to the best boy, best girl and best parent. So get practicing!
You will also have the opportunity to sample the delicious smoothies we will be selling in school again. 

At parents evening in the Autumn term, Mrs Long and Miss Rose set up a stall with examples of cost-effective, healthy lunchbox alternatives - some parents were pleasantly surprised at their child's response to some of the tasters. Did you have a taste?
