Food in School

Packed lunches

These are kept in the hall away from classrooms and cloakrooms. When sending in drinks, please ensure that containers are water tight. For safety reasons we recommend that glass bottles and tins are not brought into school. We encourage children to consider healthy eating as a part of the science curriculum in all classes, but respect your right to pack your child's lunch box with food of your choice.

Two lunchtime supervisors are responsible for the safety and well-being of your children during the lunch hour.

Snacks

A healthy seasonal food snack is provided for Foundation and Key Stage 1 pupils every day which varies from fresh fruit to vegetables to dried fruit.  We aim to help children understand about good food and life skills.  As part of the curriculum all pupils will experience growing, harvesting and cooking their own food, visit a farm to see how the foods are grown commercially and see recycling in action by making compost.  We also encourage all pupils to eat healthy snacks at break times.

Milk In School

In line with the Dept. of Education's new School Food Plan, we have arranged Coolmilk to be our milk provider. Should you wish your child to recieve milk please register online via this link. If your child is entitled to Pupil Premium the school can provide milk for your child free of charge. For further information please contact the school office.
