Schools are advised to have a policy for their school. We took suggestions from other schools and it was discussed with our School Council. It is based on the National Standards for Healthy Eating.
Our school will provide facilities for pupils bringing in packed lunches and ensure that free, fresh drinking water is readily available at all times.
The school will work with the pupils to provide an attractive and appropriate dining room arrangement.
The school will work with parents to ensure that packed lunches abide by the national standards for healthy schools. (see lists below)
As we do not have a fridge, pupils are advised to bring packed lunches in insulated bags with freezer blocks where possible to stop the food going off.
Whenever possible the school will ensure that packed lunch pupils and school dinner pupils will be able to sit and eat together.
