Lunchtimes and snacks
We have a number of children who have serious nut allergies so we ask that lunch boxes and snacks are nut and sesame seeds free.
Tasty and nutritious midday meals made from healthy and, wherever possible, local ingredients, are cooked in our own kitchen. The menu works on a three weekly rota basis and offers the children at least two choices, one of which is a vegetarian dish. Alternatively, children may bring a packed lunch.
Milk can be purchased for drinking at the mid-morning break, and is free for children of Nursery age and for Key stage 1 and 2 children who are entitled to Free School Meals. Mid-morning milk is being provided at a reduced price as a result of European Community subsidy and milk is good for your child
Key Stage 2 children may bring a drink and a healthy snack (preferably fruit or similar) to eat at the morning break, but please no sweets, crisps or chocolate biscuits.
Foundation and Key Stage 1 children are provided with a piece of fruit daily under the government initiative.
We actively promote “Healthy Eating” through as part of our “Healthy Schools” status and hope that you will join with us in encouraging a healthy diet.
