Bredenbury Primary School is part of the Herefordshire Healthy Schools Programme - a partnership between the Council and the Primary Care Trust. It works with all Herefordshire schools, parents and whole school communities to develop a healthier living and learning environment for children. In particular, the programme focuses on healthy eating, personal, social and health education, physical activity and emotional health and wellbeing.
Bredenbury Primary School pupils have benefited by getting more physically active through extended sports programmes, walking or cycling to school and a wide range of physical activities appropriate to their age and needs. They have also learned about nutrition and how improving their diets by eating and drinking more healthily leads to feeling better and working more effectively. Developing positive relationships and learning about responsible behaviour is also part of the programme. We are affiliated to the British Heart Foundation’s Schools and Community Programme - Heartstart.
