PE and Healthy Living statement

Windy Nook Primary School consistently strives to promote active and healthy lifestyles and to provide sporting opportunities for all it’s pupils.

We do this through our PE and PSHE Curriculum and also through our after school sports, fitness and healthy cookery clubs.
