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.
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.

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.
|HIGH||Over 15g||Over 20g|
|Medium||Below 15g||Below 20g|
|Low||Below 5g||Below 3g|
This is a healthy choice as it contains only 1.5% fat and 3.8% sugar.
