Lunch Times in Llanrhidian
Lunch runs from 12:00 until 12:55 each day. Pupils eat in their pods. In the Summer months pupils have the option of eating on the school picnic benches outside.
Llanrhidian Primary School is very involved in the “Swansea Health Promoting Schools Scheme”.
UNCRC – Article 24 – Your right to good food and water
All food and drink prepared for the children during school time is expected to follow Swansea County Council healthy eating guidelines.
During break times we have a ‘fruit only’ policy. Children may either purchase a piece of fruit from our ‘Fruit Tuckshop’ or bring their own from home. We work hard to promote the health and well-being of the children and staff at school. ‘Fruit Tuck’ is paid for termly and costs £10.00.
We ask parents of children who bring a packed lunch to school to make every effort to ensure that the packed lunch contains a healthy eating and drinking selection. This is consistent with our Health Promoting Policy.
The City and County of Swansea has a no debt policy relating to the payment and provision of school meals. Their policy is that if there are no funds in your child’s squid account, then you need to provide a packed lunch.
