School Council's Healthy Snack Policy
Break Time Snacks:
All schools have a duty to promote healthy lifestyles, and to educate the children in our care to be healthy, so we only allow fruit or vegetable snacks at playtime (not crisps, chocolate, etc). Children can bring these in from home.
Reception & KS1 children (Tehidy, Kynance and Poldark) are given a piece of fruit or veg every day for snack, as part of the School Fruit and Veg Scheme.
Pupils across all year groups are able to bring a healthy snack for morning break time, we do not encourage items such as crisps and chocolate. Please send your child to school with a bottle of water.
Lunch Time Provision:
Hot and cold meals are available every day at school. For parents providing a packed lunch, please aim for food to be as healthy as possible. If lunch boxes contain snacks such as crisps and chocolate, children will be able to eat these at lunch time as part of their lunch – not as a morning snack.
We are a nut free school.
Free School Meals
Not to be confused with the universal infant free school meals for all KS1 pupils, it is vital that all Key Stage 1 pupils who are eligible to claim Free School Meals are registered in order for schools to receive the Pupil Premium funding. For more information visit our Pupil Premium page under 'Statutory Information'.
The 'Free Schools Meals Application Form' has been revised and is available as a download on the link below, or you can apply online. Parents/carers can now complete one application for all of their children – whether it is for Free School Meals (so Year 3 and above who must pay for their school lunches) or for their child’s school to receive Pupil Premium only (i.e. for KS1 children who already receive a free school lunch).
