Children are welcome to bring sandwiches to school, but we ask that you provide your child with a healthy lunchbox and discourage crisps and sweets. Our Eco-council would strongly recommend a no-waste lunch, so please try to keep packaging to a minimum. Your child will bring home any food they have not eaten (rather than throwing it away at school) so that you can see exactly what they have eaten.
