Healthy Eating Message
As a school, we promote healthy eating and being active with our children. This is in response to our results from the NHS regarding the national child measurement.
We deliver activities in school which include:
- The daily mile
- Wake up and Shake up
- Studying healthy eating and active lifestyles
- Special lunch menus and celebration assemblies
We would also ask that children bring one healthy snack (not crisps or chocolate bars) for their breaktime. There is free fruit available for Early Years and KS1 children.
Please support your child's learning at home and try and incorporate the following:
- Talk about where food comes from or visit a farm!
- Monitor activity every day
- Eat 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day
- Encourage children to drink plenty
- Try some new foods - get creative in the kitchen!
- Eat breakfast every day
Our aim is to improve the health of the whole school community whilst meeting our statutory duties to promote children's health and well-being so everyone knows how to keep themselves healthy. We hope that with the help of parents, children will motivate each other to make healthier food choices and stay active.
Thank you for your support.

Healthy Eating Information
School and Nursery Milk Scheme
Free milk is supplied for under 5's and subsidised milk for 5 - 7 year olds with the Nursery Milk Scheme.
Milk for under 5's is fully subsidised by the Department of Health. This enables children to receive a 1/3 pint carton of milk FREE each day if they attend approved day care facilities for 2 hours. The free allocation will cease following their 5th birthday.
Reception class children in schools are not entitled to free milk once they turn 5. After this the cost is 20p per day for children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. This has to be ordered and paid for on ParentPay the term before the milk is required.
