Free Fruit and Vegeatables For Early Years and KS1
The children in Reception up to Year 2 receive free fruit and vegetables through the school fruit and vegetable scheme,which is part of the Change 4 Life Programme.
These are readily available in the classrooms and we encourage the children to take a fruit or vegetable snack at set times throughout the day.
We encourage all children in Reception and Nursery Class to drink milk each day, the children are entitled to receive free milk up until they turn 5 years old. After this point the parent / carer needs to set up a Cool Milk account and pay for their child's milk online. Please go to https://www.coolmilk.com for details.
