Childhood obesity has reached epidemic levels - 22% of children are overweight or obese when they start primary school, and this increases to 34% by the time they finish primary. Sugar is a big part of the problem, with children eating and drinking more than twice the amount of sugar that they should. With your help, we would like to change that.

Below is the link to access the website, where there are resources to download, such as healthy recipes. 

We hope that you will support us in helping the children learn about healthier swaps for happier lives.

Key Stage 1 put on an amazing Nativity performance. Thank you to everybody who came to support us.

We had great fun spending the day outside and getting very dirty!
