The Welsh Network of Healthy Schools Scheme describes a health promoting school as one which 'actively promotes, protects and embeds the physical, mental and social health and well being of its community through positive action'.
In Blaenymaes Primary School we are a Rights Respecting School which places the United Nations Convention on the Rights of The Child at the heart of all we do. When you visit us you will see the Rights Respecting articles all around you. When you scroll through our Twitter page @BYM_Primary you will see that the learning experiences for the pupils have wellbeing, rights, and healthy aspects running through them.
We are proud to have achieved a National Quality Award for Healthy Schools, our Silver Eco Flag and Gold Rights Respecting Award.
Below you will see some links useful to supporting our Healthy Schools ethos.
School Nursing Service
Children from Reception to Year 6 are offered a Flu Vaccine via a nasal spray every year. You will be given consent forms to complete and return to school. It is really important that you return these forms even if you do not want to give consent.
The school nurses will be in school on Monday 4th October 2021 to administer the vaccine.
If you are a parent or carer, we hope you will find the web links below useful.
