Fun-Trition for Schools
What is Fun-Trition?
The Fun-Trition programme supports schools with meeting these new requirements, by providing a progressive, delivered, 12 week, cross-curriculum (Science, D&T, SMSC, PHSE, Maths, English, and Geography) based healthy lifestyle programme for each year from KS1 through to KS2.
Fun-Trition aims to inspire children, parents, teachers, friends and families to make healthy lifestyle choices, through a series of interactive, practical, fun and thought provoking lessons. These lessons are based around the main principles of keeping healthy – eating well, drinking well, moving well and sleeping well.
Research shows that children that eat a healthy school lunch concentrate and behave better in lessons and, over time, achieve higher academic attainment. We believe that the Fun-Trition programme offers schools, when delivered consistently year after year, the opportunity to improve behaviour and academic achievement within the school, while reducing school absence due to poor health, and improving family engagement.
Fun-Trition is a cross-curriculum based programme for KS1 and KS2 children that will not only teach food education, but help increase your school meal uptake, and engage parents in the health and wellbeing of their children.
With the introduction of Universal Free School Meals, School Food Plan, cookery/nutrition additions to the D&T curriculum and Ofsted inspectors now monitoring and evaluating the ‘whole school approach’ to healthy eating, the demand for schools to deliver on health and well-being is moving up the agenda.
What do we provide?
Lessons are delivered by qualified tutors, not only to provide food and wellbeing education, but to provide practical cooking skills, homework tasks to engage with parents, and also help support schools to increase school meal uptake. A fully interactive online evaluation tool enables teachers to monitor progress of their classes and measure the impact of Fun-trition for the whole school.
