Lunch

We are a Healthy School

We actively encourage the children to eat healthily and adopt a healthy lifestyle. The infants receive free fruit and vegetables daily. This provision is available for juniors at a charge of under £1 per week. Whenever we eat in school we always consider the nutritional value of the food, e.g. Christmas Lunch and Easter Breakfast and Food Technology. However, we do have sweets occasionally as treats, e.g. Easter Egg Hunt, end of term rewards and fundraising events. Some children like to bring in a 'little something' for each child in their class to celebrate their birthdays. Sweets and cakes are NOT permitted but if you wish, very inexpensive, suitable items can be brought instead e.g. balloons.
