Healthy Living

A healthy school is a place where students have many opportunities in the classroom, and outdoors to promote their healthy physical, mental, social and intellectual development. The impact of our programme is based on a whole-school approach to physical and emotional well-being focused on four core themes: Personal, Social & Health Education; Healthy Eating; Physical Activity; and Emotional Health & Wellbeing. During a recent good practice moderation visit, Judith Mc Morran and Roz Rigby (Newcastle Health promotion practitioners) reported West Denton as being an exemplar health promoting school.

At WDPS we are extremely committed to continuously improving and developing our health promoting practice.
