Free fruit is provided daily for all EYFS & KS1 children.
Please note due to Covid restrictions we are not currently distributing fruit to KS2, children are welcome to bring in their own fruit. at present.
KS2 children can bring a piece of fruit from home if they wish. At morning playtimes, we also provides a healthy trolley. Children can choose from melon slices, apples, bananas, satsumas, pears and other seasonal fruits. Milk, apple juice and orange juice are also available every day.
Each item of fruit costs 30p and drinks cost 20p.
We also encourage all children to bring fresh water or sugar-free juice each day in a re-usable plastic bottle. The children are allowed to drink during lessons without having to interrupt learning. The one exception to this is that we ask them not to take their bottles into the computer suite as a spillage could damage the equipment. We provide each child with one HCPS water bottle when they start school. Please label your child's bottle and remind them to take it home at the end of the day so that it can be cleaned and refilled. If your child requires a replacement plastic bottle, parents/carers can buy one from the school office.
Studies have found dehydration can cause headaches, fatigue and can impair progress in learning. Please help to ensure your child does not become dehydrated during the day.
