Breaktime / Lunchtime
Children are offered milk and a portion of fruit each day in Foundation and Key Stage 1 classes, as the school subscribes to the Government's 'Fruit and Vegetable Scheme'. For children in other years, you may wish to send in a mid-morning snack for break-time. We want to encourage our children to have good eating habits so please send in something healthy like a piece of fruit or a plain biscuit - do not send in sweets, chocolate items, crisps or nuts. This applies to packed lunches too.
NUTS We have a number of children in the school who experience a severe reaction to nuts. As this could prove fatal to them, Northgate School makes every effort to be a nut-free zone. Under no circumstances should parents send in snacks or packed lunches which contain any nut items, this includes peanut butter sandwiches, pesto sauce, bakewell tart and desserts that contain hazelnuts. Please check the pack of any items that you send into school.
