Packed Lunches

If preferred, children can bring a healthy, packed lunch from home in a clearly named lunchbox. Please bear in mind that drinks should be in an unbreakable container with a straw where necessary. No fizzy drinks or glass bottles, please. Water is encouraged rather than sugary drinks. A cool pack is recommended inside the lunchbox in hot weather.

Snack Time

Children in Reception, Year 1 and 2 all receive fruit or vegetables at playtime as part of the National Fruit Scheme. This has proved very popular and has expanded the range of fruit/veg the pupils will eat! Children in Years 3, 4, 5& 6 may bring a piece of fruit from home to eat at playtime. If you would like your child to have fresh milk each day, please contact CoolMilk at

All children are required to bring a named water bottle to school each day. We have four fountains at which bottles can be refilled.
