If you wish your child to change from school dinners to packed lunches then we ask for two weeks notice.

My child needs a Special Diet, are you able to feed him/her?
Special diets can be catered for. Examples may include Diabetic, Coeliac and Low Fat diets. The Council now has a Peanut Allergy Policy in place. Please contact Angela Blower on 01642 728030 for more information.
In order for us to provide a child with special dietary requirements, however, we must have written confirmation from the Paediatric Dietician that the child is under. They then forward us the necessary medical dietary information to enable our cooks to provide your child with the appropriate meals.
Children may bring a packed lunch and a drink for their midday meal. Drinks should be brought in a plastic container or unbreakable plastic flask. Fizzy drinks, sweets or chocolate are not permitted and lunches should contain no nuts. Their lunch must be brought in a suitable lunch box, clearly labelled on the outside.
Children are allowed to eat fresh fruit or vegetables during morning break.
Water at School
Children are encouraged to bring bottles of water to school to drink throughout the day. Research has shown that this helps to keep the children more alert and focused during the school day. Bottles should be clearly marked with the child’s name and may be refilled from the chilled water dispensers in school.
