Snacks and Drinks

All children in Reception, Year One and Year Two are provided with free fruit every day by the Government Fruit and Vegetables for Schools Scheme; snacks do not need to be provided from home. If your child has any allergies, please ensure that we are fully aware of this. We encourage children to drink plenty of water, as this has been shown to aid concentration, so please provide your child with a named water bottle for use in the classroom.

Children in Key Stage 2 may bring in a healthy snack from home. Mid-morning snacks must only include a piece of fresh or dried fruit or vegetables. Please ensure children do not bring in biscuits or chocolate bars for break time.
