Packed Lunches

Falconbrook Primary School > Parents > Packed Lunches

Packed Lunches:

By arrangement with the school office children can opt to bring in a packed lunch.  This should be sent in with the child at the start of the day. Children may swap between school dinners and packed lunches once a term, changes mid-term are not allowed.

At Falconbrook Primary School we promote healthy living and eating. Topics that support children to understand why keeping themselves healthy is important are written into our curriculum framework.

We believe that it is important that children develop healthy eating habits from a young age.

A healthy packed lunch could include:

  • Sandwiches and / or Salad
  • A piece of fruit

The following should not be included in your child’s packed lunch:

  • Chocolate or chocolate covered biscuits
  • Fizzy or sugary drinks
  • Glass bottles
  • Crisps
  • Sweets
  • Cakes
  • Biscuits
  • Take-away food (hot or cold) including chips/fried chicken/burgers in buns

Children do not need to bring a drink to school, as drinks of water are available both in the dining room and outside in the playground.

Packed Lunches for School Trips:

Children, who bring a packed lunch from home for a school trip, should also follow the guidance above.
