Sidegate Primary School

Seize Opportunity, Create Success


Please could we ask children not to bring in any snacks or packed lunches which contain nuts (packets of peanuts, peanut butter, chocolate bars with whole nuts etc) as we have both children and staff with nut allergies.  This is particularly important as children are now eating their packed lunches in their classrooms in their bubbles.

All children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 receive a piece of fruit each day as part of the NHS School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme. In Reception classes, semi-skimmed milk is also provided through the Cool Milk Scheme. These are government funded initiatives. Children have snack in the classroom at break time and as such do not need to bring any other snack with them unless they have a specific medical need.  Further information on this scheme can be found below.


If your child is in Years 1 - 6, milk will be available at break time for a subsidised cost of 22p per day but you will need to sign up to the scheme.  Visit the Cool Milk section on our website to find out how to achieve this. 


In Key Stage 2 (Years 3-6), children may bring a break time snack into school, we encourage you to provide them with a healthy snack that is low in salt, sugar and fat. Please make it clear to your child what is their snack and what is their lunch - they will be challenged, if they are not eating a healthy snack.
