Helping to keep our children safe and healthy is one of our main priorities at Amherst.
Each primary school has a named school nurse who can be contacted either through the school or directly at Lukis House. They can provide confidential help and advice to children, parents, carers and families in these areas.
Healthy and Active

What you need to know
Eating well is important. Children need to eat well as it will give them energy and nutrients to grow and develop, be healthy and active.
A healthy, enjoyable lunch gives children the energy they need to learn and play at school.
We ask that children have fruit or vegetables for their snack at snack time in the morning.
