Nut Free School
We are a nut free school . Please ensure packed lunches do not contain any form of nut/peanuts, this includes peanut butter, chocolate/cereal bars containing nuts, and any other product that contains a nut in any form. Whilst we appreciate this may cause an inconvenience, we have to consider the welfare of all children and have a duty of care for them. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.


Lunches and snacks

Packed lunches

Packed lunches should include:

  • Some starchy foods such as bread (sliced bread, pitta bread, wraps, bagels), pasta, potatoes, couscous or rice (choose wholegrain where possible)
  • At least 1 portion of fruit and 1 portion of vegetables or salad. One portion of vegetables/salad is roughly a handful (a child-size handful for a child’s portion)
  • Dairy food such as cheese or yoghurt
  • Meat, fish, or another source of protein such as eggs, beans and pulses, hummus, falafel


Packed lunches should not include:

  • Sweets or chocolate bars (a cereal bar or biscuit bar is fine e.g. rocky bar, wagon wheel). 


Healthy Snacks for Break

As part of our aim to encourage all pupils to eat a balanced diet, which includes the recommended five portions of fruit/vegetables a day, we only permit children to bring a piece of fruit (fresh or dried), vegetables (e.g. carrot or celery sticks) and water,  to school for morning break. All pupils in Key Stage 1 are offered a free piece of fruit at morning break, as part of the Government’s ‘fruit for schools’ scheme.


Water Bottles

Children are permitted to bring a water bottle to school to drink from and should only contain water - no juice drinks. Bottles are available to purchase from the school office. For health reasons, please ensure bottles are labelled and taken home to wash. Indoor and outdoor water fountains are also available for the children to use. At lunchtime, water jugs and beakers are placed on all tables for all pupils to use.
