All Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils are currently entitled to a free school meal every day.
Milk and drinks in school
Cartons of milk for children who have ordered it, will be delivered to the classroom at the beginning of the day and should be consumed at or just before morning playtime only.
Children who do not have milk are provided with school water bottles.
Drinks should not be taken in to the playground at dinnertime or at afternoon playtime (unless in very hot weather).
Water (bottles) should be available in class daily, at reasonable times. Each classroom has a filter tap for drinking water.
‘Tuck’ for morning break
Pupils may bring a small snack to be eaten at morning playtime only.
Chocolate or sweets should not be part of school snacks, and pupils should ideally only bring fruit. Fruit should be encouraged by staff.
Parents should be advised to only send an amount that their child can comfortably eat in about five minutes.
All empty packets, wrappers and unwanted food should be put into the playground bins before the end of playtime.
Pupils should not bring drinks for morning break, as access to water bottles is provided in classrooms.
National Fruit Scheme
All pupils in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 are entitled to a piece of fresh fruit every day.
All pupils currently take part in this scheme and are encouraged to eat the fruit rather than crisps, biscuits, etc.
School asks that parents refrain from sending children in with sweets, chocolates and crisps into school.
Chewing gum is not allowed in school.
