Healthy Eating

Breakfast Club

Our Breakfast Club has been generously sponsored by Greggs (Bakers) and “Livin” (local Housing Association), since November 2013, which means it is free to all children who attend.

We provide a hearty breakfast for up to fifty children per day of healthy cereals, toast and milk from 8:15am, last orders 8:300am!

Our Breakfast Club is managed by Mrs Harrison and Mr Moore.

Children enjoy the social aspect of Breakfast Club. They work across all year groups co-operatively sharing and playing with games, “Lego” and a wide variety of quiet activities. The children also have the opportunity to play team games and circle games outside before the beginning of the school day.

If you would like to find out more about our free Breakfast Club or even to offer your services as a volunteer, please contact our friendly and helpful office staff

Breaktime Fruit

All children from Year 1 to Year 6 have the opportunity to buy a piece of fruit for 30p each morning break, Monday to Thursday.

On a Friday the Friends of Dean Bank sell Jam/Chocolate sandwiches for 50p.

Fruit and Vegetable Scheme

Under the Government’s School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme, each child aged four to six in LEA maintained schools will be entitled to receive a free piece of fruit or vegetable each school day.

Scientists agree that everybody, including children, can reduce their risk of heart disease and cancer by eating at least five portions of fruit and vegetables every day. On average, children in the UK eat only two portions a day.

We are delighted that our school participates in this exciting scheme, which reinforces our commitment to healthy eating. The fruit and vegetables are fresh and of good quality. The aim is for the children to have a positive and enjoyable experience of fruit and vegetables.

The scheme is voluntary, and although there is no obligation for children to take part, We hope you will share the belief that it has many benefits. It is a great way to help us teach our children the benefits of healthy eating. If you have a child of the relevant age and do not wish your child to participate in the scheme, you must let us know as soon as possible. It is essential that you inform us of any allergies your child may have so that we can ensure they are not given anything that might harm them.

If you have any questions, please contact the school.
