We are constantly educating children on the benefits of a balanced and healthy diet. We are a Healthy Eating School and lunches are provided from our own in school kitchens. We ensure our menu is balanced and varied with dishes from around the world. We try to encourage children to try new things and experience new tastes with regular celebratory meals. Parents and grandparents are invited in to experience lunchtimes with their children and sample the school dinners. We also teach food hygiene and healthy eating across the curriculum with food technology, diet and health taught in a range of areas.
A healthy diet is essential for maintaining and protecting children’s health, for ensuring they perform to their full potential during the school day (both academically and physically) and for their growth and development.
Our aim is to help them establish a healthy lifestyle that, we hope, will continue into adulthood. Proper nutrition is essential for good health and effective learning.
