All Year 1 and Year 2 pupils receive a free cold brunch, which children share as a social event in their classrooms from 10:15 to 11:00 daily. Children in Year 1 and Year 2 also receive free fruit each day. As there is no lunch break for KS2 during our working day, it is vital that children bring sufficient refreshments to keep them going until they arrive home. We have three breaks - 15 minutes, 30 minutes and 10 minutes - and children like to have something to eat and drink at each break. Breakable items such as glass bottles are not allowed and neither are sweets. Healthy snacks such as sandwiches, cheese, fruit and vegetables are actively encouraged. EPS is a Nut Free Zone.
It is vital that children have plenty to drink during the hot months.
Please make sure your child brings in sufficient drinks for the day. Cold drinking water is available around the school from the blue coloured water coolers. Children are also encouraged to have a water bottle on their table in class in the hottest months to ensure that they drink sufficient water throughout the school day.
