Requirements for school:

We ask that each child brings in a named bottle each day, preferably with water.  Your child can ask for their bottle to be refilled at any point in the day, as well as having access to an outside water fountain. 

We encourage water to be drunk throughout the day to keep your child hydrated and support them in their readiness to learn.  We do not allow fruit squash with added sugar, fizzy drinks or energy drinks of any kind. 

We also encourage packed lunches to provide a balanced, healthy meal.  Too much sugary food often causes fatigue in afternoon sessions and should therefore be kept to a sensible amount. 

Please mark your child's lunch box clearly.  Glass or metal pots/bottles are not allowed for the safety of all children in school. 

 

SNACK: Your child will be given a morning break time where they will have the opportunity to eat a small snack.  KS1 children are provided with free fruit and vegetables. KS2 are asked to adhere to fruit and vegetables also.

NO NUTS are allowed in school so please check ingredients carefully, particularly in cereal bars. Thank you
