Fizzy drinks, sweets and chocolate are not part of a healthy lunch box.
School Drinks Policy
When children start school in Reception, they are given a school water bottle which is designed to last them through to Year 6. This bottle is for water only. In class children are able to drink water through the day using their bottles. If they would like a water based drink at lunch time, ie squash they are welcome to do so.
