Proving Your Eligibility

If you prefer to send your child with a packed lunch we ask that lunch should be in a secure container, clearly marked with the pupil’s name.  Unfortunately, we are unable to reheat/cook food from home.

We also have a no nuts rule in school, this includes chocolate spreads and other sweet items.

Drinks should be in a plastic container with a secure lid.

– No glass bottles or tins
– No fizzy drinks or nuts

In warm weather we advise you include a freezer pack in the sandwich box to keep the food cool.
