Mid-morning Snacks

For a number of reasons we ask you not to send any sweets, or any other drinks apart from water to school with your child. At present, due to a Government initiative, children in Reception, Year 1 and 2 are offered a free piece of fruit each day to be eaten at break time. Key stage 2 children may bring a piece of fruit to eat only.

 

Water 

Please give your child a plastic bottle to use in school for water. It is important that they drink water throughout the day and we want it to be readily available to them. The bottles can be filled at home if you wish. Bottles need to be taken home in the evening and washed. Water bottles are available for purchase from the school office.
