Sport and Health
It's official - we are a Plantinum Sports Award School! Hurray! We're one of only a handful of schools across Cheshire West and Chester who have achieved the highest level of award for 2019 - 2021.
Out commitment to sporting activities and healthy lifetstyles begins with the PE provision that is provided at the school from our specialist sports' teacher, Mr Forbes. All children receive at least two hours of physical education a week from planned and sequenced lessons, building on the skills they have acquired over their time at Highfield. In addition, children are encouraged to join in structured activities at lunchtimes with our adult sports leaders and offered a range of before and after school clubs promoting healthy lifestyles.
Being healthy isn't just about having a healthy body, it's also about having a healthy mind. All pupils are part of the My Happy Mind programme which teaches children to understand how their brain works, how to deal with stressful situations and how to use calming techniques. Positive mental health is every children's right.
