Food4Life Schools Award

Food4Life Schools Award

 

At Fairfield Road Primary School, we recognise the importance of a healthy life-style and diet, and understand that establishing a balanced diet in childhood helps establish healthy eating habits for life.  We also recognise that there is a strong link between a healthy diet and effective learning. Our school aims include: Provide a calm and positive environment, where children and staff are safe, healthy, happy, confident and motivated. This is embedded throughout all aspects of school life.
