Healthy School Status



We are pleased to announce that last term our school achieved ‘Healthy School’ status.  To support us in the achievement of this award, we would like to ask for your support by sending your child into school with ‘healthy snacks’ for break times and packed lunches.  Healthy snacks include healthy cereal bars, chopped fruit and vegetables or money for snacks from the kitchen hatch.  All food from our school kitchen is provided by Chartwells Catering, who continue to develop new recipes and source quality products from reputable and, where possible, local suppliers.

Children are offered choice and variety each and every day. Fresh potatoes, vegetables, salads, yoghurt, fruit platters and fresh milk are always available.  All food served, meets our ‘healthy school’ status and sugar and fat content are monitored whilst maintaining flavour.
