We are a very healthy school!!!
The community of Johnston School is fully committed to the Health Promoting Schools Scheme.
All food and drink prepared for the children during school time and After School Club follow Pembrokeshire County Council healthy eating guidelines. During breaktimes 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 well being 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 Johnston 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. Pupils in Key Stage Two swim regularly, ensuring that by the time they leave primary school they are confident swimmers.
