Birchwood is a healthy school and promotes healthy eating.
Milk is provided free of charge and water is available to all children throughout their session. It is important we are informed immediately of any allergies or special dietary requirements your child may have. To protect all children with allergies, please note we are a NUT free school.
All children are offered a choice of fruit at snack time and we ask that parents contribute £1.00 per week towards this. Payment can be made half termly or termly via the School Gateway app.
The snack money you donate is also used to purchase:
- seasonal snacks such as hot cross buns when learning about celebrations
tactile items such as shaving foam, jelly and baked beans for messy play experiences
ingredients in order that the children can take part in cookery and food prep activities such as sandwich making, topping pizzas and cupcake decorating
- ice lollies when the weather is hot as a special treat
It is only due to the generous support of our parents that we are able to fund these opportunities to enrich the children's learning.
