Healthy Schools

Knowsley Junior School plays an important role in supporting the health and wellbeing of our children. We are currently working to sustain our Healthy Schools Platinum Award, with our sights set on the Commited Award. 

We have four focus areas: 

  • Healthy eating
  • Anti-smoking
  • Anti-Bullying
  • Engaging all of our children in active sport

We embed our healthy schools focuses into our curriculum through science, PE, philosophy for children, assemblies, learning mentor courses and extended schools. We also hold an annual Healthy Me, Healthy Planet Week and National Sports Week.  

The play makers are important role models and they encourage a healthy lifestyle by holding dinnertime clubs and running our healthy tuck shop. They also help to run after-school clubs with our sports coaches.
