Health and Well Being
At St Augustine's we promote many aspects of Health and Well Being through our Assemblies and several areas of the curriculum such as PE, DT, Science and PSHE.
We expect all pupils to know how to stay healthy and to recognise what constitutes an unhealthy lifestyle. There are many opportunities for children to discuss 'Being Healthy' and what to do when illness occurs. Health professionals such as the Community Dental Worker, visits classes to promote good teeth care.
National health screening programmes are provided in school:
In Reception all pupils have their eyesight and hearing checked.
In Year 1, 2 and Y3 all pupils are offered a Flu Vaccination (new in 2016).
In Year 6 all pupils are offered a height and weight check.
