FOOD AND DRINK

Milk

Children in the Infant Department are provided with a free carton of milk each day.  Please let us know in writing if you do not wish your child to have this.  There are also fresh water drinks fountains in the school.

 

School Meals

Meals must be paid for weekly in advance.  Cheques should be made payable to RCTCBC.  Dinner money is collected every MONDAY. Please ensure the correct amount is sent in an envelope with your child’s name and class on. Dinner money can also be paid online and information is readily available in the school office on how to do this.  Meals missed through absence will be credited.  Some families will qualify for free school meals.  If you think that this may apply to you please ask at the school office for further details or contact Bronwydd House on 01443 425002

The latest information on prices is available from the school office.  We endeavour to display the weekly menu before the commencement of that week.

As part of the Healthy Schools Guidance and general health awareness in Cwmdâr Primary School, we offer milk and fruit to all children. We have discouraged all other forms of tuck, in keeping with the healthy eating ethos our kitchen provides. Infant and nursery children are entitled to free milk.

 Breaktimes

Children are encouraged to bring a piece of fruit for their break.  We ask that infant pupils bring their fruit suitably prepared for eating (peeled, segmented etc.) and in a bag/box that has a label with your child’s name on.  Children are only allowed to bring fruit to school – no sweets, crisps etc

At Cwmdâr Primary School, we have a firm commitment to being a “Healthy School”, we are proud to have been awarded the Healthy Schools Accreditation for being a Health School for the fifth time. Chilled and filtered drinking water outlets are provided for the children.  We ask that children bring a filled bottle each day if they so wish.  If required, top ups can be acquired from the above mentioned outlets.

Ensuring pupils are well hydrated is obviously important and research has proved that it has a positive impact on pupil performance. 

Packed Lunches

You may prefer your child to bring a packed lunch from home.  This should be brought into school in a clearly named, secure container.  (All drinks are to be in plastic bottles or cans).  In line with our involvement in the Healthy Schools Initiative we take every opportunity to teach our children about healthy food choices.
