We promote a healthy eating policy for all our students. All students must bring healthy lunches. No sweets or crisps are allowed. Monday, Tuesdays and Wednesdays are sugar free. Thursday and Friday students are allowed to bring one small bar. We remind parents to be aware of the high sugar content in some types of yoghurt snacks and fruit based drinks. We encourage all students to include fruit and vegetables in their lunches.
