Healthy Eating and Snacks
We have been awarded our ‘Healthy Schools’ accreditation. In Foundation Phase we provide our children with a daily healthy snack and we ask families to support this by paying £1.00 per week. Foundation Phase children will receive a free carton of milk during snack time. Pupils are encouraged to bring healthy snacks to school. As we are a healthy school we ask that no chocolates, sweets or crisps are eaten during break times. Fizzy drinks are also not permitted. Research has shown that children’s concentration is improved if they drink water regularly. Therefore, we encourage pupils to bring bottles to school so that they can fill the bottles or drink from our water fountain on a regular basis.
A healthy diet is promoted and encouraged at all times. Lunch is taken in two sittings; one for Infants and one for Juniors. Nutritious and well-balanced hot school dinners are cooked on site. A very efficient online payment system is in place.
