Can my child bring squash into school?
No, squash, fizzy drinks, fruit cordials, fruit juices and flavoured water are not allowed in school. We encourage all children to bring a water bottle into school each day, if your child is reluctant to drink plain water,there are a water bottles available with a section for fresh fruit infusions and this is a fun and colourful way to entice your child to drink water.
Does my child need to bring a snack for breaktime?
All Reception and Keystage 1 children are provided with free fruit and vegetables as part of a Government scheme. Therefore, children up to Year 2 do not need to bring a snack for breaktime.
Keystage 2 children are encouraged to bring fresh fruit and vegetables into school for their snack. This can also include dried fruit such as raisins and apricots.
Does my child need to bring a lunchbox into school?
All Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children are provided with a compulsory free school lunch. Please do not send your child in with a packed lunch.
Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 children may also have a school lunch which parents can pay for via Scopay. If Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 children opt to bring a packed lunch, it must adhere to our healthy eating policy and not contain chocolate, sweets and fizzy drinks. It is vital that no nut based products are brought into school as we have a number of children with severe nut allergies.
My child wants school lunches but has specific dietary requirements, what should I do?
We provide a wide variety of choices for our Hot School Meals to cater to all tastes. If you wish to discuss your child's particular needs, please contact the school for an appointment with the Harrison's Chef Manager.
