Healthy Eating

Our school has achieved Healthy School Status and has gained the Tooth Friendly Partnership Platinum Award. This means that we are committed to promoting health by setting good examples in our school. We encourage healthy, nutritional, sugar-free food and drink at break time. 

In consultation with Springhead Infants and our school governors, we do not allow the children to bring sweets, chocolate, biscuits, cereal bars or crisps into school. The children are allowed to bring a healthy snack which is low in fat, sugar and salt. Alternatively, they can purchase a nutritious snack from our tuck shop.

For children choosing to bring a packed lunch, please ensure you provide healthy food and drinks.

For birthday celebrations we ask that you do not send in sweets or confectionery. If you would like to mark your child's birthday we would prefer you do this by participating in our Birthday Bookworm scheme. Children who donate a book to their class library will have their name displayed on our Birthday Bookworm Roll of Honour.
