Health and Nutrition

A healthy diet improves concentration and learning.


BREAKFAST - please make sure your child arrives at school having had healthy nutritional breakfast including a drink of water.

 

LUNCH  - we provide children with a healthy balanced lunch meal. Children are offered a choice of 3 main courses. We serve vegetables and a choice of desert including fruit. We do not serve pork. Fresh water is provided. We recommend that your child has a school dinner every day. All Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children are entitled to a free school meal.

 

For children in Nursery and Key Stage 2, school dinners are charged at £1.80 per day or £9.00 per week. Some families may be eligible for free school meals.

If you decide to make your child a packed lunch, please follow these guidelines:

 

  • One portion of fruit and one portion of vegetable or salad
  • A starchy food such as bread or pasta, rice, couscous, noodles, potatoes, crackers or breadsticks
  • Meat, fish, lentils, kidney beans, chickpeas, hummus, peanut butter or falafel
  • A dairy food like cheese, yoghurt or fromage frais.
  • Drinks: water only please
  • A snack item such as crisps or a biscuit

 

Not allowed: chocolate bars, chocolate-coated biscuits and sweets

 

We are a NUT-FREE school.

 

If a child’s packed lunch is not healthy, your child will be given a school meal and you will be charged for it.

 

Children who attend the Centre for Autism are offered a high level of support at lunchtimes. Centre teachers will work closely with parents of autistic children to overcome any issues relating to diet and to promote healthy eating.

 

Please encourage your child to drink plenty of water and eat a healthy balanced diet at home.
