Health and Well-being

At Pebsham we believe that the health and well-being of our pupils is very important.  We have just completed our new EYFS area, which included a large area for outside learning and play.  This facility will enable our pupils to learn and play outside all year with suitable shelter from the English weather!

Physical Fitness

Each class, at Pebsham, has 2 hours of timetabled PE.  Sports include: rounders, tennis, hockey, gymnastics, swimming, football, athletics and many more.

As part of the Hastings and Rother Sports Games Partnership, we are able to participate in many different tournaments against local schools.  Last year we took part in orienteering, tag-rugby, athletics, football and cross country.

We are part of the TKAT Academy Trust and were priveledged to participate in the foirst ever TKAT Games in July 2016.  We joined 41 other TKAT schools at Crystal Palace for a day of competitive athletics.  Please click here to find out more.

 

Diet

We are a 'PhunkyFoods' school and with this we link to their website and online learning areas.  We teach food technology across the school and have recently added 2 child-height hobs/ovens to allow more children to cook together. Please click the logo below to find out more.

School Dinner

At Pebsham, we have a school Catering company called Chartwells providing our School Dinners. Chartwells cook hot and cold meals every day for pupils and staff at Pebsham. All meals are cooked on site and are served by the Chartwells staff.  Children can choose from two main dinner options (at least one is a vegetarian option), jacket potato with salad or a ‘Picnic on a plate’. Children make their selection during morning registration and are given a coloured badge to wear, showing their lunch choice, to help support Chartwells staff during the lunch service. Children are offered water or milk to drink with their school dinner. Menus are available on our website and are also sent home to ensure all pupils are clear about the menu choices for that term. School dinners are designed to meet the standards for schools set by the Food Standard Agency.  

Packed lunches

We ask that you provide your child with healthy food options. Packed lunches should not contain sweets or chocolate. If they  contain a sweet snack such as a biscuit, please monitor the amount given. Children may bring in a drink to have with their packed lunch. Water, a small amount of sugar-free squash, flavoured water or fruit juice may be drunk with packed lunches in the Hall.

Snacks

All pupils in EYFS, Years 1 and 2 are offered fruit or vegetables as a snack in the morning. We encourage all pupils to bring in healthy snacks of fruit, vegetables or cereal bars for eating during the morning break. Healthy snacks are also available from our break-time snack shop for 30p each.

Water

At Pebsham, we ask that every pupil uses a school drinking bottle every day.  Pupils will bring their bottles home each  evening to ensure they are kept clean and hygienic. If a child’s bottle empties during the school day, they will be encouraged to fill it from the drinking water taps located in or near every classroom. Children will be encouraged to drink water in school. 

 

Well-being

We teach children about feeling good, being healthy and caring for themselves through our everyday teaching, circle times, PSHE and science lessons and through assemblies.

To support families and individual pupils, we have a linked keyworker. The keyworker supports pupils and their families, working together with the school. The keyworker can link parents to a variety of different agencies and support networks.
