We invite parents into school regularly to inform them about how to support their child and them during their time in our school. A workshop informing parents about the obesity strategy and then parents joined their children doing the 1K activities on the school field. Over 150 parents attended.
Obesity Strategy Work in school and with parents
Park Run Celebration Assembly
As part of our commitment to promoting Physical activity in and outside of school, we registered as a school to take part in the weekly Park Run initiative which ran simultaneously at Pontefract Park and Thornes Park every weekend. Since February 2019 our children have been engaging in physical activity with their parents completing the weekly Park Run. During our Celebration Shine assemblies, we have been recognising these achievements.
To our delight we were informed that out of the 20 Wakefield schools who registered, we came 3rd and in recognition of this Peter Ward (Health Improvement Officer) came into school to present our 3rd place trophy and give the children who took part a prize each. Well done to all of those involved
