Plumberow 'Health Police' (including the Pupil Safety Champions!)

Plumberow’s Health Police
The Plumberow Health Police are going to be looking at Healthy Living. They will be discussing ideas on how to help pupils make healthy choices, improve the approach to Healthy Eating and monitoring the clubs on offer at Plumberow. 
They will also monitor Healthy Provision in school - monitoring food choices, school lunches and extra-curricular clubs.

Update - July 2016
In April, Plumberow received the Healthy Schools status once again after completing the Benchmarking Document.. Following this, the group have been working on producing an action plan for the Enhanced Status which is the next level up. This has to include measurable data and percentages and it will also include work in hand targeted on groups of pupils as well as whole school. Data has been taken from the whole school pupil survey, Health Police spot checks and tally charts collated by staff in KS2 (re. healthy snacks).
This action plan is a working document and is set to be addressed over a period of 18 months to 2 years. Once complete, a school 'story', together with other supporting evidence will be submitted. If successful, we will be awarded Enhanced Healthy Schools Status!

'This week, the Health Police have been concentrating on the safety of the Plumberow pupils by looking at the 
driving and parking happening around the school in the mornings!
We hope that everyone who has to drive to school is aware of the importance of driving and parking 
considerately around the school premises! 
We need to make sure that everyone is safe!'

'On Thursday 19th May we carried out a traffic safety walk around the school area. We took the iPads so we could take photos of inconsiderate parking and driving. We were surprised by what we found. Here are some examples:
                    Tyres mounting the pavements
                    Parking on corners/bends
                    Blocking resident’s driveways
                    Cars going too fast
                    Insufficient reverse lights
                    Cars not using their indicators when moving
                    Cars parked on double yellow lines
                    Double parking
                    Children riding on scooters without helmets.
We are going to keep this evidence and present their photos and notes to our governors to see whether we can address any of these issues. We want to make Plumberow a safer place for all. We would really appreciate your support.'(report from the Health Police)
