Food and Drink

Snacks

Children may bring a healthy, mid morning snack and a drink for playtime. As we have a number of children with severe nut allergies, please do not send any nuts, or products containing nuts such as Nutella, into school. All snacks should be labelled clearly with your child’s name. We encourage children to eat fruit. All children in Foundation and Key Stage 1 classes receive a free piece of fruit each day. Children may bring an alternative healthy snack. A list of recommended snacks is available from the Office. Please do not send sweets or chocolate bars for snacks. All snacks should be brought into the classroom at registration. There are separate trays for storage.

Drinks

Children are encouraged to drink plenty throughout the day, especially water. Please send water or a diluted drink for your child in a named container. The children may refill their containers with water during the day. Milk is also available during the morning. The milk scheme is managed by a company called ‘COOL MILK’. School milk is free for all children under 5 and/or registered for free school meals and is subsidised for other pupils. You can register your child at www.coolmilk.com

Lunches

Healthy, hot meals are served daily. The School Food Support Service provides a cash cafeteria service for lunches. Meals can be ordered each morning and paid for at lunchtime. Please see this link for the current menu choices.

Alternatively, your child may bring his/her own healthy, packed lunch in a plastic container. As many children bring similar boxes, please ensure that your child’s full name is displayed on the outside. Please do not send sweets, chocolate, glass bottles, cans, fizzy or hot drinks. Water is available for all children without a drink.

Although the school provides trolleys to store the lunch boxes, unfortunately, we cannot guarantee ideal temperatures.
