Children are encouraged to drink water throughout the school day to help them function at their best. Water sipper bottles can be kept in their classrooms but must only contain water - flavoured water, squash, juice or fizzy drinks are not allowed.
The children are expected to have their water bottle in school everyday. Fresh drinking water is available to refill bottles when required.
All pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are provided with a piece of fruit each day. This is provided free of charge as part of the Department for Education (DfE) Fruit in School Scheme. We receive a range of fruit and vegetables including apples, satsumas, pears, carrots, cherry tomatoes and very occasionally strawberries!
Children in KS2 may bring in a piece of fruit or vegetable to eat at morning breaktime. No other snacks, including cheese products or savoury biscuits or crisps are allowed.
Children are able to have a carton of milk each day. This is provided free of charge for children aged 4 years. Once your child reaches the age of 5 years, milk must be paid for. The school works within the Cool Milk Scheme. Milk is available for a small fee - please click here to register your child.
We have a number of children with nut allergies, some being very severe where contact with nuts or nut products can cause a life threatening reaction.
Therefore, we are a completely nut free school. This means that nuts and nut products must not be on the premises.
