We are proud 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 and why it's important that we locally source ingredients, during PSHE. Children may bring another drink to have with their lunch, which is additional to their water bottles. They are not allowed to bring fizzy drinks or sweets to school.
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 wristbands, 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.
Every child under the age of five is entitled to a free 189ml serving of milk whilst at school. This is a government scheme that helps to support milk distribution, to help promote a balanced diet and good nutritional health.
