Working For Everyone

Snacks

At Lower School, children are provided with a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables at snack time. For children under 5, free milk is also available if parents register. Parents can also choose to pay for this option for their child throughout Lower School.

At Upper School, children can bring their own snack to eat at morning break or buy something from the tuck shop. These snacks must be 'healthy' as described below, in line with our Healthy Schools ethos.

Tuck Shop

At Upper School, snacks are on sale from the tuck shop shed every break time. There is a daily rota of fresh snacks (30p), prepared by our cooks, as well as fresh fruit and raisins. We no longer sell drinks in single-use plastic bottles, but instead refill pupils' bottles with sugar-free squash for 20p.

GOOD IDEAS

Healthiest snacks are an extra sandwich, fresh fruit or vegetable sticks. Please remember we have a strict NO NUTS policy.

Choosing a healthy snack:

  • Look at the nutritional information per 100g(%).
  • Find a snack with a low-medium fat and sugar content - and no nuts or chocolate.
  • Don't worry about the calories as children use up lots of energy growing.
