Drinks in school

Children can bring in water to drink during the school day which should come in an appropriate water bottle, this will be kept in the classroom.  The water bottle should go home each day to be washed and refilled for the following day.  Children should only bring water into school.  Fruit drinks, squash, cartons etc. can be used in lunch boxes but no fizzy drinks.  

Breaks and lunchtime

Children in EYFS and Key stage 1 have a morning and afternoon break.

Children in Key stage 2 have a morning break.


Children can bring in a small healthy snack - this should be fresh fruit, cheese or cereal bars (these must not contain nuts, we operate a strict no nut policy)
