Our school have a variety of healthy eating projects ranging from the school menu to using ingredients grown by the children themselves.
Aspects of the curriculum are used to focus upon the children having a balanced and varied diet. We use aspects of the curriculum to try and raise the children’s awareness of healthy foods and nutrition. Packed lunches are closely monitored during lunchtimes to ensure the contents are appropriate. sweets, chocolates and fizzy drinks are not allowed within packed lunches.
Recently ‘Taylor Shaw’ have provided school with extra curricular teaching tools. So far we have used the “Smoothie Bike”, “Bread Maker” and the “Ice Cream making kit”.
At Witton-le-Wear Primary School, our school dinners are cooked on site by our fabulous Taylor Shaw School Cook, Miss Taylor, and the kitchen staff!
Sample menu are available in school so you can see some of the delicious food available to our children each day. These menus are changed on a termly basis. Each child, & their parents, pre-select their main meal choices on a three week menu rota. Each day our children receive a coloured lunch band, matching their pre-chosen food.
Children at Witton-le-Wear Primary School participate in our school fruit scheme. Each child in Key Stage One has the option of a piece of delicious fruit such as oranges, pears, apples or bananas each day during morning playtime. The children in Key Stage Two are asked to supplement our scheme at a cost of 10p each day. The fruit scheme relates well to the ethos of Healthy Schools, which we all will endeavour to maintain.
