Fruit Tuck Shop

In Key Stage 2 we promote healthy eating by having a fruit tuck shop which is run by the Healthy Schools Committee and Year 6.

Fruit is available to buy daily at the cost of 20p.

The options are usually apples, bananas, pears and oranges.

On a Wednesday we offer slices of Watermelon also at the cost of 20p.

Within the next few weeks we will also be introducing a weekly special (fruit pots, vegetable sticks etc)

If you wish your child to buy fruit from the tuck shop please send money with them to school. 


As we are a Healthy School we promote healthy eating throughout the school day. Please find a copy our school food and fitness policy and of the current Welsh Government Healthy Lunchbox Leaflet below.
