Freshly cooked meals are available from the school kitchen. They cost £2.05 per meal. Fresh drinking water is provided in the lunch hall for all children to access. Pupils are provided with a choice of healthy balanced meals every day, including vegetarian options. Pupils who prefer to bring a packed lunch may do so, but we ask parents to encourage their children to bring a healthy selection of foods. Pupils are rewarded for making healthy choices for their school lunch.
Snacks : Most adults and children enjoy a snack as part of their break times. All pupils in Nursery, Reception and KS1 receive a piece of fresh fruit, free of charge, at break time. Older pupils may bring in snacks from home but we would ask that snacks remain healthy and parents/ carers avoid items such as crisps and chocolate which contain high levels of sugar and fat.
We also offer a daily ‘healthy tuck shop’ to pupils in KS1 and KS2 selling hot toast. Cost for this is £1.00 per week.
Filtered water : All of our classrooms are now adapted to give pupils a constant supply of filtered water. All pupils are provided with a ‘water bottle’; should they lose it, the replacement cost is £1.00.
Exercise : We try to provide a wide range of physical activities for our children either as part of the curriculum or as extra-curricular activities.
All pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are now entitled to a free school meal each day as part of the Government’s ‘Universal Infant Free School Meals’ offer.
