The standard requires demonstration of a robust PSHE curriculum, with a focus on educating our children and young people to keep themselves healthy. safe, emotionally resilient and well prepared to make a positive contribution to society.

Healthy Eating 

At Lordsgate we promote healthy eating. Our school meals provided by Mellors offer a well balanced healthy lunch. Alternatively children may bring their own packed lunch. Children in Reception to year 2 are provided with an item of fresh fruit daily, free of charge. KS2 children bring their own fruit into school for break time. Children bring water into school to drink throughout the day in their school water bottles. This can be replenished when required. Milk is provided free for children under 5. Parents have the option to purchase milk for their children from Reception to Year 2.


This year 2021-22 our current healthy school focus is on healthy eating. We are currently working towards gaining the Lancashire Healthy Eating Quality Standard Award. As a school we have identified a need to improve the content of our pupils lunchboxes.  .  

We designed then made our own healthy packed lunches and invited our parents in to help.
