Healthy Schools



Here at Ysgol Bryn Teg we aim to develop our pupils to be healthy, confident individuals ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society. We are a part of the Carmarthenshire County Council Healthy Schools Scheme. This project forms part of the  ‘World Health Organizations initiative European Network of Health Promoting Schools’.


There are 7 health topics that we cover as a school. These include;

  • Food and Fitness
  • Mental and Emotional Health and Well Being
  • Personal Development and Relationships
  • Substance Use and Misuse
  • Environment
  • Safety
  • Hygiene


This term we are focusing on ‘Food and Fitness’ and ‘Hygiene’, we will be incorporating these themes into our curriculum throughout the term. One example of how we are doing this is that we now have a minimum of 3 P.E sessions a week.

We have given the children the challenge of presenting the importance of drinking water every day. please read below are some excellent examples that have been given across the school.

Healthy Lunchboxes

As a school we encourage families to send their children in with a healthy lunchbox. Children are encouraged to drink water with their packed lunch, and we do not permit the consumption of squash and fizzy drinks. Please see below tips on creating a healthy packed lunch;
