Break Times & Healthy Treats:
Children may bring in a little treat to share with their friends in class, usually on the occasion of their birthday. Please try to ensure these are healthy treats, such as fruit or another tiny gift. Some children have very robust teeth, but others do not and this can make visits to the dentist very distressing after a lot of sugary treats.

The children are allowed to bring in a piece of fruit for play times. Sweets, chewing gum and crisps are not allowed. Please remember that no nuts are allowed. Children in Reception, Years 1 & 2 will be offered a piece of fruit, usually at morning break, as part of the National Fruit Scheme.

Some children will still choose to bring a packed lunch. We would ask that these do not contain sweets, chocolates or fizzy drinks. Children are not allowed to share food with a friend, as many children suffer from allergic reactions to a range of foods, so please reinforce this point at home.
