As a school we are conscious of the role we can play in encouraging our children to choose healthy options.
All our Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 children receive a piece of fruit each day as part of the National Fruit Scheme. This is eaten during afternoon break.
We have a no sweets or chocolate policy but do encourage the children to bring a piece of fruit for morning break.
For those children on packed lunches we encourage healthy eating and ask that sweets and solid chocolate bars are not included in the lunch boxes.
Milk in ⅓ pint cartons is provided for all Infant children. There is a small charge each term for this milk.
We encourage our children to have their own drinking bottles in class and there are water fountains in each resource area to ensure they are well hydrated thus enabling maximum concentration.
Meals are served in the hall at a cost of £2.20 each day (£11.00 per week). There is always a choice of meals and salad or fruit is always made available. As far as possible food is baked rather than fried and the salt content of the food is controlled. Welfare Assistants look after the children when they are in the hall and afterwards on the playground.
Dinner money is collected each Monday morning for that week’s meals and should be sent to school in a sealed envelope clearly marked with the child’s name and class. Dinners can also be paid for monthly or half-termly if you wish. We require a half-term’s notice of any changes as the food is ordered in advance.
You may be entitled to claim for free meals for your child. Claim forms are available from the Education Offices in Lancaster. You will find the address of this office on the page titled “Admissions.”
