We use mealtimes as an opportunity to develop and encourage children’s eating and social skills. Varied and nutritious hot lunches are prepared and served daily by our catering team on a three week rotating menu. Special diets for vegetarian, medical or religious purposes are available on request. We are keen to work with parents to ensure that the dietary needs of our children are met. Bryony School’s kitchen continues to have a 5-star food hygiene rating from the Food Standards Agency (last Inspection, September 2022).
Children may instead bring packed lunches but we advise parents to ensure that these are healthy and nutritious. We suggest that packed lunches should contain fresh fruit and/or vegetables and no more than one ‘pudding’ item. Sweets, chocolate bars and fizzy drinks are not allowed. Packed lunch containers should be unbreakable with no glass containers. Please visit the Children’s Food Trust for more information.
Children should bring their own healthy break time snack into school. All under 5s are entitled to free milk each day from the Government. All children may bring in additional snacks if they stay after school.
PLEASE REMEMBER: We are a ‘nut free’ school! No nuts or nut-related products should be brought into school please.
We encourage children to have their own water bottle in school. Keeping hydrated aids concentration. Special water bottles which have an antibacterial interior may be purchased from Friends of Bryony School (FoBs) via the school office or children can bring their own.
