Healthy School

imageYsgol Talysarn has joined the Gwynedd healthy schools Scheme and has been awarded the Quality Award. The scheme enables the school to make a positive contribution towards the health and safety of pupils, teachers and the wider community through developing an environment that promotes health.




A Healthy school presents aspects of health and well-being through the following:

  • The National Curriculum/Foundation Phase activities.
  • The hidden Curriculum and the school’s ethos.
  • Develop existing links between the home, the community and other specialist agencies.

Ysgol Talysarn promotes health and consequently this is reflected in school activities and school life. Sweets and crisps are banned during break time, eating of fruits only is encouraged. Y5 and 6 pupils and council members run a fruit shop during morning break time.

The school has an anti-“Bullying” policy. The school runs a “Cyfaill Clên” scheme, where the older pupils care for the children who require a friend/games on the playground.

“Circle Time” is used to promote good behaviour and the pupils moral and social development.

School Council – A pupils committee that represents members of their classes on the council. This provides an opportunity for the pupils to voice their ideas on several matters.

Break Time – Wet and Dry Play time has a special structure with various activities to promote joint play and social development. There is a teacher and three assistants on duty during break time. At dinner time, there is one senior dinner supervisor and one dinner time supervisor looking after the pupils.

The school has received Gwynedd Healthy Schools Quality Award accreditation. The school promotes drinking water, and the School Council has purchased bottles for every child.
