What snacks will my child have at school?

As a school, we have adopted a healthy approach to eating.  We participate in the Government fruit and vegetable scheme, whereby all of our children are offered a piece of fruit or vegetable as a mid morning snack, which is eaten in the classroom. This therefore means that snacks do not need to be sent to school. There is no cost to parents/carers for the supply of these snacks.

 

What drinks will my child have at school?

Milk

New Reception children starting in September 2017 will be provided with a milk scheme. School milk is free for under-5s, and for over-5s it is available at a subsidised price of 22p per day. Each child that registers with Cool Milk will receive a 189ml portion of semi-skimmed milk every day, delivered fresh and chilled to the classroom. Register online at Cool Milk for your child to receive milk at school. See below for our letter about the school milk scheme and poster about the scheme for all children.

 

    

    

Water

The “Friends” supply the children with a water bottle at the beginning of their Reception Year. This means that the children have easy access to water whenever they need a drink. Year 1 and 2 children also have water bottles provided.

Are nuts allowed in school?

We have children with a SEVERE nut allergy. These children will be carrying an Epi pen at all times and staff are trained to use the equipment. It is vital that everyone adhere to our school policy of no nuts or nut products in lunch boxes, this includes e.g. peanut butter, nut based chocolate spreads, cereal bars with nuts, pistachio nuts, etc.

Healthy Schools

 

We are delighted to have been awarded with our renewed Enhanced Healthy Schools Status in April 2015. This has helped Chandler’s Ford Infant School become an even healthier place for everyone.

We are proud that:
  • The children know many ways of living a healthy lifestyle “we need fruit, vegetables, exercise and plenty of water”
  • Pupils enjoy the responsibilities of being school councillors (TED Reps), VIP’S and playground friends “We do loads of important and special jobs and make sure everybody has a friend.”
  • Our children feel safe and free from bullying through events such as anti-bullying week
  • We have achieved Activemark and involve sports coaches in our PE lessons
  • We involve children, staff, parents and governors in a working party to continue to embed and develop the healthy schools ethos in all aspects of school life
We will continue to ensure our school is a healthy school and are already developing this further.
  • During Healthy Schools Week parents came into school to sample our healthy lunches.
