Leeds West Academy

Healthy Schools

The Healthy Schools and Food Education Coordinator takes the lead on the food aspects of the Academy’s Healthy Schools initiative and the School Food Ambassadors programme. It is important to monitor take up of Free School Meals, and to promote healthy eating with disadvantaged students. 

Healthy food is one of the key aspects of the immersion curriculum enrichment weeks in February. The overall theme of the week is ‘Healthy Living’. ICE Weeks have become a powerful part of the curriculum. During these weeks our students work extensively with other members of the community, including Primary School students and the elderly on all healthy living topics to include healthy eating.
