Packed Lunches

Please make sure that the food is in suitable containers, preferably plastic boxes, and that drinks are not in glass bottles or cans. Fizzy drinks shouldn't be brought into school for lunch!


We are proud of our Healthy Schools status and so we encourage children to bring in a healthy packed lunch. If you would like some help deciding what to put into your child's packed lunch then the School Food Trust website has some great ideas - including low-cost and low-effort menus!
