Packed Lunches


Children can bring a packed lunch if parents prefer, in a box clearly marked with the child's name.  Sweets (confectionary), chocolate bars and fizzy drinks are not allowed. We have children in school with nut allergies and ask that children do not bring nut products into school. We ask parents to support us in healthy eating when considering the contents of the lunchbox.

We encourage children to eat fruit at playtimes children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage One are provided with fruit every day.  Key stage 2 children are encouraged to bring fresh fruit from home.

Milk is available for children in all classes at a cost of £11.00 per term, payable in advance via Parentpay.

We encourage children to drink plenty of water during the day.

Juices or flavoured waters are not permitted.  Drinking bottles are available from school and can be purchased via Parentpay.
