We are keen to work in partnership with parents to encourage the children to understand what healthy eating means and how it can be achieved. We ask that parents support the school to help the children establish good eating habits, by providing a ‘balanced’ and ‘nutritious’ packed lunch. To promote healthy eating, the children are taught about a balanced diet during PSHE.
When your child starts at Saint George’s Primary, we will ask you to complete a medical form to identify any medical needs, allergies, intolerances, or dietary requirements your child may have, to ensure we provide the best care to all of our children. In all classes and in the school kitchen we have posters displayed with photos of any children with any allergies, intolerances, or dietary requirements so all staff are aware. Children are given orange coloured wrist bands, so they are easily identifiable. We are a no-nut school. Please ensure your child does not bring anything to school which contains nuts, this includes Nutella chocolate spread.
Healthy packed lunches should be ‘balanced’ with both savoury and sweet options. Children may bring another drink to have with their lunch, which is additional to their water bottle. They are not allowed to bring fizzy drinks or sweets to school.
