Health and Activity for Life

We are extremely proud that Southville Primary School was one of the first schools in Bristol to be awarded the Mayor's Award for Excellence as a health promoting school. We are committed to encouraging all children to make Healthy and Active Lifestyle choices. The Year 5 and 6 Food Crew and Tuck Shop crew are dedicated to delivering these healthy messages. This area of the website will inform you of the activities taking place within school.

We now have a new ECO Crew which is made up of children from

Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 

However, all children are welcome to help with recycling & saving energy in our school!

Healthy Choices

It is very important to make a healthy start to life. As a school we encourage all children to make Healthy Life choices. As part of our commitment the children have established a 'Food Crew'. These children are responsible for promoting balanced lunch boxes, minimising food waste from the kitchen, running and accounting the school tuck shop. All this information can be found below. More will follow shortly.

Tuck Shop

Our Year 6 keep us healthy by running a daily healthy tuck shop. They even buy the bread from the deli and do the accounts every week!

We sell:

A variety of fruit & vegetables -  10p

Pitta bread - 10p

Bread sticks, rice cakes, crackers etc - 10p

Raisins - 10p

Frubes (frozen!) - 20p

Malt Loaf - 20p

And on Thursdays, baguettes (fresh from a local bakery) - 20p

Every care is taken to ensure that all products are nut & sesame free.
