Children up to the age of five receive free school milk. Once they are five, parents may continue to pay for their child to have milk at snack time. Parents who would like their child to have milk in school are required to register online at www.coolmilk.co.uk
Children are encouraged to bring a bottle of water to drink through the school day, which they are able to keep in the classroom. Drinking fountains are also provided around the school.
We encourage children to have a healthy snack mid morning. They may either have fruit/vegetables provided through the government scheme to primary schools, or they may bring their own snack. Our Food and Healthy Eating policy is available on the policies page of the website.
