Healthy School

Ysgol Iach / Healthy School

At Nantgaredig School we are very proud of our Healthy School status. We remain one of only a few Welsh schools to have been awarded the National Quality Award for our commitment to the project.

Teaching the children to be active, healthy and to develop life skills that will enable them to make healthy, informed choices is of upmost importance to us. We also pride ourselves in encouraging the children to express their themselves and to talk about their feelings. We know that healthy, happy children are good learners!

We take pride in our whole school approach to the scheme. Our work is driven by our committed Healthy/Eco School’s Council. Together we ensure plentiful opportunities for the children to develop healthy lifestyles and attitude.

We do continually look for new ideas to support the project and value the input of the children, the parents and the local community. If you have any suggestions for us please contact the school.
