Healthy School

We are proud of our 'Healthy School' award and follow guidance given to us from the Department for Education in relation to all aspects of your child's health and well-being. Herts Catering Ltd (HCL) follow this too but should you wish to bring a home packed lunch in for your child rather than have one supplied by HCL please ensure you do NOT include the following:

  • Nuts of any type (including peanut butter and chocolate spread)
  • Sweets or chocolate bars
  • Fizzy drinks (a carton of juice is acceptable with lunch)

We also request that your child has a name water bottle with them for use during the day - please note the water bottle should only contain water and not squash or juice.
