Healthy Schools

Healthy eating is actively encouraged and promoted through the school curriculum.  The school offers a school meal service providing a choice of three main courses, salad, vegetables and three desserts consisting of yogurt, fruit or a traditional pudding.  If you would like your child to have a hot school meal then money needs to be sent into school in a clearly marked envelope or container on Monday morning.  The current price of a school meal is £2.20.

 

Some children will bring packed lunches from home which will be eaten in the dining hall.  As we are a healthy school it is important that the food provided reflects this.  Ideally lunch boxes should contain: a drink of water or squash in a non-glass container; a sandwich or something savoury like a slice of pizza, a sausage or a small pie; some prepared vegetables like carrot or cucumber; a yogurt; and a piece of fruit.  Treats like crisps, biscuits and cakes should be restricted to two or three times a week and should not be a regular part of the lunch box.  

 

During morning break children can a small carton of milk.  If you would like your child to have milk then apply online using details on the slip provided.

 

All children in reception and key stage one are provided with a piece of fruit each day.  All children are encouraged to bring a fruit or vegetable snack from home to eat at playtime.  The younger children eat their home snack during the afternoon.

 

Each child is given thier own water bottle at the beginning of term and this means that throughout the day children have access to water .  The water bottles are washed and emptied daily.
