Children bringing a packed lunch must do so in an appropriate container/lunch box. As a Healthy School, we do not allow fizzy drinks or sweets in packed lunches. Children should bring a straw or plastic beaker for their drink or have a suitable drinking bottle (the drink must be water, pure fruit juice, cordial, milk or a yogurt drink). If a dessert is included then they must bring a spoon. All packaging and uneaten food will be taken home.
We have 8 Lunchtime Supervisory Assistants who look after the children over the lunch period.
Healthy eating is promoted in our school, with free fruit each morning for Key Stage 1 children. Children in Key Stage 2 may bring a piece of fruit to school each day for a snack if they wish.
