Lunchtime Menu Term 2 2017

 Packed Lunches

Provision is made for children to eat packed lunches. Glass bottles and fizzy drinks should be avoided and an unbreakable flask is preferred to reduce the spillage of drinks. We encourage children to bring healthy packed lunches.

Water and Snacks

We recognize that the drinking of water during the day is essential. Each child is provided with a water bottle and encouraged to drink regularly during taught sessions and use the water fountains during break. If your child loses their water bottle, you can purchase another one from the office for 70p.
A ‘Healthy Eating’ Tuck Shop sells juices and fruit.

Children are allowed to bring their own mid-morning snack which should consist of two or three plain biscuits (not chocolate) and/or a piece of fruit.
