Is drinking water available?

Children have access to drinking water in school. They should bring in a filled water bottle every day (water only) which can be refilled as required.


What should I put in my child's packed lunch?

We encourage children to bring a healthy lunch to school which could include items such as fruit, vegetables, pasta or rice salads, and yoghurts.

We are a Nut Free School and ask that children do not bring nuts, or food containing nuts e.g. Nutella, to school as some children have allergies.

Hot drinks and soup are not permitted.


It’s my child's birthday, can I send in sweets/treats?

We are a healthy school and we ask that children do not bring cakes, sweets or treats into school.  Instead we encourage children to bring in a book which they can share at story time.
