In May 2006 the school was awarded the prestigious Healthy school award. Extensive documentary evidence from pupils, staff, parents and governors confirm that Kennall vale School meets or exceeds the national standards. This is a fantastic achievement and reflects a positive and whole-school commitment to good health. The Healthy schools award has four elements, PSHE, Emotional well being, food and sports and physical activity. Examples of good practice at Kennall vale include the popular Healthy tuck shop where a tempting array of fresh fruit, vegetables, cheese and milk is offered to everyone. Leap into Life is enjoyed by key stage one pupils, and the whole school benefits from a broad and exciting selection of sporting events and activities through the Penryn partnership. Capoeira proved popular this year and will be introduced on a regular basis at the start of each year.
The school has recently completed the Healthy Schools audit, and feels confident not only of re accreditation but going on to gain the enhanced award, in Healthy schools plus!
