Healthy packed lunches
You may alternatively provide your child with a packed lunch and a non-fizzy drink in an unbreakable, sealed container.
KS1 children are entitled to one piece of fruit at the mid-morning break. This is provided free by the National School Fruit Scheme. KS2 children should bring in either fruit or vegetables for their snack at morning break or they may buy a slice of toast from the KS2 Tuck Shop.

Chilled and ambient water is available to all children from the water cooler.
Promoting a healthy diet
The school takes part in the annual ‘Eat them to defeat them’ programme.
The multi-award-winning Eat Them to Defeat Them campaign and associated schools’ programme has been a huge success, with the 2022 campaign reaching over 1 million children in 3,850 primary and special schools. 57% of participating parents say their children ate more vegetables, including over a third of those fussy eaters who rarely eat any vegetables at all.
