Packed Lunches

Where children prefer to bring a packed lunch to school, they can bring a drink in a plastic bottle or paper carton but water is provided on each table every day. Patrington CE Primary Academy prides itself on promoting healthy eating and therefore do not allow fizzy drinks, energy drinks, chocolate bars or sweets in packed lunches.

Co-operation is requested on ensuring our school remains a NUT FREE ENVIRONMENT due to some children and staff in school suffering from allergies.

Special Dietary Requirements

If your child has any special dietary requirements, please complete the Special Dietary Requirements form (link below) and return this form together with a copy of a medical letter from the hospital or GP  to a member of the Admin team.  The school will then forward these documents to Hutchisons for processing.

If you require a paper copy of the form, please ask for one at the school office.
