Love, learn and live in Christ!

We are SO excited to be welcoming all our children back next Monday 8th March! I am sure you are too! Please check the message in the left column of the page below for information on school re-opening to all children. Please remember the one way system will still be in place as will social distancing. Power on this week knowing the end to online learning is well in sight now! Stay safe! Mrs Hodges

Healthy Snack Policy for Key Stage 2


Ratification by Governors

Review date

Spring 2018

Spring 2020



Our school has achieved the National Healthy Schools Standard.

To support our approach to healthy lifestyles we have a Healthy Snack Policy.



Our children can bring cheese, fruit, vegetables, yoghurt or salad for their morning snack.


Our children can bring a snack of their choice or buy from the school Fairtrade Tuck Shop. There is a range of snacks for 80p.


No snacks containing nuts will be allowed at any time.



To encourage children to:

  • Be aware of healthier options
  • Eat healthier snacks
  • Try foods they might not otherwise choose


To promote:

  • Sustained energy rather than a quick boost
  • Improved concentration from less sugary snacks
  • Health awareness/ looking after our bodies as part of RE and PHSCE
  • An increased litter free environment through less packaging
  • One part of the recommended intake of fruit and vegetables



This policy will help parents to support their children’s daily intake of fruit and vegetables.
