Healthy Packed Lunches

If children bring a packed lunch it must be contained in a lunch box clearly named. Boxes will be placed on the class trolley. Please ensure that no glass or any other breakable container is used in the interests of safety. If you are sending a drink (not fizzy please) please provide a straw or cup but do not send cans or large bottles, as these are dangerous. Water is always available.

Plastic bottles may be recycled or reused. As little packaging as possible is recommended for the packed lunches and this will be returned in lunch boxes.

Sweets are not permitted in school and healthy lunches including fruit are encouraged.

Please remember that we are a NUT FREE school. If a child has a packed lunch item containing nuts, they will be asked to eat it in an area away from the other children or keep it to eat at home.

The NHS change4life website has lots of ideas for healthier lunch boxes and some great recipes. Get loads of easy-to-prepare ideas your children will love, as well as tips on what else to put in their lunchbox.

However, if your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 and you receive one of the listed qualifying benefits, you should make an application for free school meals as the school your child attends will receive extra funding. 

If your child is in Year 3 or above, and you receive one of the listed qualifying benefits, you should make an application for free school meals. 

You will need to apply for Free School Meals via your local authority.
