Happy Healthy Children

Our school vision is ‘happy children loving learning’.

 We know that the health and well-being of our children has a big impact on how they learn and get on at school.  We have created this section of our website to help you understand how we are working to protect the health of our children here at Pocklington Infant School. We are also committed to promoting children’s physical and emotional well-being.

As parents, you can help too. So, we hope you’ll take the opportunity to explore our website and learn some hints and tips. Together we can support our children’s health and well-being both in and out of school.
