The Eatwell Guide
- The Eatwell Guide is a policy tool used to define government recommendations on eating healthily and achieving a balanced diet.
- Meals at Spring Hill High School adhere to this guide.
- Meals are provided by the school for each student and parents/carers are not asked to pay for meals.
- Offering a daily cooked meals falls in line with the Family Social Model that forms one of the theoretical bases of the school.
- A packed lunch is always an option for those children who do not want the meals that are provided by the school. We are however a 'healthy school', therefore packed lunches must be healthy.
- Packed lunches will be monitored by the site’s Deputy Headteacher. Use the Eatwell Guide for support.
