Our school has achieved the National Healthy Schools Standard.

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

 

MONDAY - THURSDAY

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

FRIDAY

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.

 

Aims

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.
