We are a healthy school

At the Royal School, we are a healthy school and promote as many virtues of the child’s well-being as possible. Children have regular access to water during the day and they have fruit before break time. Healthy eating is a core standard in our kitchens and our cooking lessons. We discuss in our PSHE and Science lessons the virtues of a healthy lifestyle, and in our PE lessons, all children have regular physical exercise.

We firmly believe in promoting a sustainable lifestyle to the children. We recycle a wide range of materials, grow vegetables and look after and generally appreciate the  grounds of the school and our wider environment.

There is a no smoking policy at The Royal School and all parents, visitors and staff are requested not to smoke inside or outside the building as well as on the field opposite the school in on the road in the general vicinity of the school.

A hot lunch cooked on the premises is available every day together with a drink. There is an extensive menu with two or three choices. Parents book meals in advance online.

All children in Year 2, 1 and Early Years are entitled to have a free school meal every day. 

Alternatively, children may bring a packed lunch into school. If children bring a packed lunch, please ensure there are no sweets, chocolate, chocolate spread or nuts inside their lunch box. Sweets, chewing gum and chocolate are not allowed in school at any time. 

For health and safety reasons, the school operates a no nuts and shellfish policy.

There are lunchtime controllers supervising your children at lunchtimes. They will gently encourage your child to eat their meals. Please do not overfill your child's lunch box as children will be asked if they have eaten all their food. Let the office staff know if your child has any specific requirements in this area.

Children who are entitled to free school meals or advice on these matters can be obtained from the school office. It is very beneficial to the school when parents claim if they are entitled to a free school meal. All inquires will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
