Ysgol Gynradd Llanybydder is part of the Carmarthenshire County Council Healthy Schools’ scheme. The project forms part of the World Health Organizations initiative European Network of Health Promoting Schools’.
Our aim is to contribute, promote and protect physical, emotional, social health and well-being of the pupils and staff by developing a health-promoting environment.
We are working hard as a whole school across seven key health topics which include:
•Food and Fitness
•Mental and Emotional Health and Wellbeing
•Personal Development and Relationships
•Substance Use and Misuse
The school is committed to promoting good health and general well being. Pupils are encouraged to drink water throughout the day, by using the filtered, chilled water dispensers.
The Fruit Shop ensures pupils eat a variety of fruit on a daily basis.
Dental hygiene and good practise when brushing teeth is strongly promoted. The Foundation
phase brush their teeth daily and work closely with the ‘Designed to smile’ team.
There is a legal duty for local authorities and schools to promote healthy eating in schools. Food brought into school for personal consumption can be subject to restrictions at the discretion of the local authority or governing body of a school. We and almost all primary schools in Wales specify ONLY fruit and vegetables for snacks during break times.
