Welcome to our ‘Keeping Healthy’ page at Andrews’ Endowed CE Primary School, where we prioritise the wellbeing of our children in both body and mind. Physical activity is woven into the fabric of our school life, with a range of activities that cater to everyone’s interests. From the bustling energy of our running track to the enriching experiences of outdoor learning, we ensure that staying active is not only encouraged but enjoyed.

In addition to our robust physical activity programs, we understand the importance of mental health. Our school is committed to providing comprehensive support, fostering emotional well-being through various initiatives. Our dedicated team of staff integrates mindfulness practices and positive reinforcement into the daily routine, promoting a positive and uplifting atmosphere for all.

We also take pride in our meal programs and health education, cultivating healthy habits that extend beyond the classroom. We believe that a healthy mind and body are the foundations for successful learning.

Join us in fostering a culture of well-being, and also develop lifelong habits for a healthy and balanced life.

Self-Care Plan

Self-care is all about what you can do to help yourself feel better or to keep yourself feeling good. It’s a way that we can look after our own mental health and wellbeing. It can help your body and mind to relax, drift away, or be more energised.

This self-care plan walks primary-aged children through a series of steps, helping them create a simple self-care plan that works for them. It helps children identify activities that they can use to support their mental health.
