Athersley North Primary School
There is a Cashless meals system in operation.
Parents will need to have a ParentPay Account to view and pay for school meals.
If children bring a packed lunch to school this should be brought in a clearly labelled lunch box.
Milk is available to all pupils at lunchtime.
We all know the unhealthy effects of carbonated drinks, energy drinks, artificial flavourings and colourings can have on our children and their health and with this in mind we ask parents/carers not to send their children to school with these sorts of drinks, either in lunch boxes or otherwise.
A small carton of fruit juice will be allowed in lunchboxes.
Water bottles must only contain unflavoured water, not cordial or other flavoured drinks.
Pupils have access to an unlimited supply of fresh drinking water at all times during the school day.
May we also remind you that children are not allowed to bring sweets or chocolate bars to school. A chocolate biscuit or chocolate covered wafer bar will be allowed in lunch boxes, but this must be limited to one per child.
We do accept that some parents/carers may find this a little harsh, but we hope that most parents/carers will appreciate this is for the long-term health and eating habits of your children, as well as ensuring that their lunchtime food helps them learn in the afternoon.
