Pack lunches from home

BPS recognises that our children come from diverse home backgrounds, cultures and ethnic and faith groups. Our school aims to meet the needs of all children and ensure equality of provision whilst taking account of this diversity and difference. We will provide a safe, healthy and appealing eating environment for pupils eating snacks and packed lunches, and ensure fresh drinking water is available at all times. We will encourage all pupils to eat and drink as much of their lunch as possible. As fridge space is not available in school parents are advised to send in packed lunches in a cooler bag or food that does not require refrigeration.

Children not wishing to have a school dinner must bring a packed lunch. We ask parents and carers not to include chocolate, sweets or fizzy drinks in their children’s packed lunch on the recommendation of the Community Dental Service.

Allergies: Nuts and nut products (e.g. peanut butter, cereal bars with nuts, pesto) should never be sent to school because of allergy concerns. Neither are children allowed to share food items for this same reason. If any item is found with nuts then it will be taken from the child and we will contact you.

Water: It has been recognised that children’s concentration and behaviour improves when children drink water throughout the day. Dehydration can give children headaches and make them tired. Therefore, we encourage all pupils to bring a plastic bottle of water to school each day. This will allow children to have access to fresh drinking water throughout each day
