Healthy Eating

School Meals

We are fortunate because all school meals are freshly cooked in school, using local suppliers where possible and following healthy living guidelines.  A high percentage of pupils regularly have school meals.  Children are welcome to choose either a school meal or bring sandwiches on a daily basis.

Fruit Break

We are a healthy eating school committed to encouraging our pupils to adopt a healthy lifestyle.  As part of this we encourage pupils to bring in fruit and offer a short break for them to eat this each morning.

Drinks

Children have access to water throughout the day and we encourage them to drink regularly.  Other drinks are only allowed with Lunch, as to drink them frequently can cause tooth decay.

Please find below the current Shire Services Lunch Menu and Specials Menus:

 

Allergens

From 13th  December 2014, the EU Food Information for Consumers Regulations came into force. These European Rules will be enforced in the UK by the Food Information regulations 2014.

The EU lists 14 allergens that need to be identified if they are used as ingredients in a dish. This means that food business will now need to provide information about allergenic ingredients used in foods sold or provided by them.

All Cooks and Catering Managers have been trained in recent meetings about these changes and have been provided with an allergen manual to keep in the kitchen. Signage has also been provided to each kitchen for display at the service point requesting that anyone with an allergy or intolerance speaks to our staff before ordering.

Shropshire and Walsall  Primary Schools

Please follow the link below to the Shire Services website which details the 4 week allergen matrix for primary schools. This matrix lists all primary dishes and identifies which dishes have any of the 14 allergens as ingredients.   We strongly recommend that any parents of pupils with allergies or intolerances still contact the school cook to arrange a meeting to discuss their specific requirements.

Busy Last Week Ahead!

As we enter our last week before the summer holidays, we have lots going on including our lovely head, Mrs Swann, saying goodbye to us!  Here are some of the events:

  • Monday sees children meeting their new teachers and classmates in the afternoon.
  • Tuesday is our sponsored fun run in aid of Cancer Research where children are asked to come wearing in pink or blue clothes suitable for running.  Later that morning, Sports Awards will be presented.
  • Reading treats will be taking place for different year groups throughout the week
  • Year 6 continue to rehearse for their leavers' assembly which will be presented to parents and carers at 10am on Friday, 21st July in the hall (there will be a DVD of the performance to order).  Some of our year sixes will also be representing the school at the regional atheletics final on Thursday.
  • We are having a whole school picnic on Thursday at lunchtime to celebrate our time with Mrs Swann - don't forget packed lunches!
  • There is a special lunch on Friday, chosen by the year sixes, on their last day of primary school.

There's lots more going on besides so do keep an eye on Dojo for messages from individual teachers and for information on whole school activities.
