If your child is on packed lunches please provide a good range of food for your child’s packed lunch and only include one small chocolate bar if absolutely necessary. Do not send in fizzy drinks.
Please may we ask that a reasonable amount of food is sent in as children are missing out on their social time due to the amount of food in their lunch boxes.
Free School Meals
Free School Meals can be claimed by Parents or Guardians of pupil’s who are on a low income. All claims will be processed by the Benefits Section at Tameside Council with the target date of 3 days.

Healthy Snacks in School
We participate in the National Fruit Scheme. This means that all children in Key Stage 1 have fruit or vegetables, free of charge, each day at morning play.
The National Fruit Scheme is not available for children in Key Stage 2 so children should bring fruit if they want to eat at morning break. No other snacks should be brought to school.
Drinking water is available in school. Each child has their own bottle of water in class available to them throughout the day. Fizzy drinks are not allowed.
