CHARLTON MANOR HAVE BEEN AWARDED THE GOLD HEALTHY SCHOOL AWARD.
Charlton Manor is a healthy school!
Charlton Manor is leading the way for healthy schools across the country, being the first Greenwich school to achieve the new Healthy Schools London bronze and silver awards and our award winning gardens and kitchen drawing praise and support from the likes of Raymond Blanc, Levi Roots, Chris Collins and Peter Seabrook.
But being a healthy school is not just about fantastic learning experiences with growing and cooking amazing healthy foods, but also about our superb support of physical activity seen by our highly succesful sports teams, clubs and promotion of walking and cycling to school. Our playgrounds are packed with activities and games at play and lunchtimes to encourage children to be physically active and the children receive at least 2 hours of PE each week. Our pupil's emotional health and wellbeing is supported by dedicated and caring staff, working in partnership with families, providing counselling services, advice and self-esteem building sessions in our exclusive Griffin House on site.
Charlton Manor (working with GS Plus) has achieved the prestigious Gold Food For Life Plan Awards! The award is based on the high quality of locally sourced ingredients used in our school meals, our 'from farm to fork' approach to food and the curriculum and our fantastic new and improved dinner service. Well done!!
School dinners are free to all children in reception, year one and year two. At just £1.40 a meal for everyone else, they are a healthy and viable option for all.
Healthy School news!
Teachers at Charlton Manor have been preparing for a new health project called saving Londoner's Lives. The project involves teachers training all children in essential, life saving skills that can be used at school, home or when out and about.
Road safety week was a great success. Children were involved in projects such as 'Be bright, be seen', safe ways to cross the road, minimising distractions when crossing the road and safe places to cross the road in Charlton. The week was finished off with a sharing assembly when we celebrated our hard work.
“At Charlton Manor we encourage everyone to walk rather than use cars or buses for short journeys. Not only is it free and healthy, but it also lessens problems with congestion and parking in our local area. We also encourage adults to set good road safety examples when out and about with children including finding safe places to cross, waiting for the green man and always checking before crossing the road.”
