Children should be provided with sufficient food to eat throughout the day; at morning break, lunch time and afternoon break. Hungry children find it difficult to concentrate.

All foods that are brought to school must have a recognisable Hechsher and any milky products must be Cholov Yisroel.

All foods brought into school must be nut free. This includes items such a bread coated with sesame. We do have children in school who have nut allergies and so ask you to carefully check the listed ingredients, especially on products such as cereal bars.

Children should bring fresh fruit or vegetables for the morning and afternoon break times. We will provide milk in the morning for Early Years, or water if your child does not drink milk, and the children can re-fill their water bottles during the day.

Packed lunch: this must include a slice of bread so that the children are able to wash and bensch together. Lunch should be either milky or parev.

In addition they should bring a starchy food such as sandwiches, pasta, rice, couscous, noodles, potatoes or other type of cereals every day; a vegetable or fruit snack (fruit bars or flakes); dairy foods such as milk, cheese, yoghurt, fromage frais or custard; a drink of still or sparkling water or fruit juice. A few plain biscuits, rice cakes, crackers or a small piece of cake may be included as part of a balanced meal.

As fridge space is not available in school, pupils are advised to bring packed lunches in insulated bags with freezer blocks where possible to stop the food going off especially in the warm summer months.

Packed lunches may NOT include: crisps, bissli, chocolate bars, sweets or fizzy drinks.

On Rosh Chodesh only children can bring crisps, pretzels or a chocolate biscuit to school. No sweets, chewing gum, fruit winders or lollipops are allowed at any time in school or on outings.

Thank you in advance for helping us to implement this framework.
