Children may have a hot meal, bring a packed lunch or go home for lunch. Please ensure that packed lunches are brought to school in a secure container labelled with the child’s name. We recommend that an ice pack is included to ensure appropriate food hygiene.
We are a Healthy School, promoting healthy eating and as such urge parents to ensure that the lunches they provide support this. Please let the school administrator know if your child is eligible for free school meals so that arrangements can be made to provide them.
Children in KS1 are given a piece of fruit each day at morning break through the Governments Fruit in Schools scheme and KS2 children are allowed to bring a fruit snack to eat at this time, if they wish.

Naming clothing reduces the risk of Lost Property, however, we often have unclaimed ‘lost’ clothing. Please check the Lost Property regularly to see if your child has mislaid anything. Lost Property is displayed at the end of the school year and anything that remains unclaimed at this time is donated to a charity shop.
Unfortunately headlice are a perennial problem in any school. We ask that you check your child’s hair regularly to help keep them at bay. Please inform us in confidence if you spot a problem so we can alert all parents. Advice on appropriate treatment is available on the Parent’s notice board. The School Nurse can also be consulted for advice.
Returning to school after illness
When returning to school after an illness, children should be fit and able to participate in all activities including outdoor games and playtimes. There may of course need to be exceptions to this rule, but if you are in doubt, please contact the school for advice.
The named Paediatric First Aiders who administer First Aid in school when necessary are Mrs Adams, Mrs Nicholls, Mrs Pearcy, Miss Scuffham and Mrs Carter. Parents will be contacted and informed after an accident if the First Aider deems it necessary. Bumps on the head are always reported to parents. Accidents are also recorded in the school Accident Book.
Staff are not allowed to routinely administer any medicines to children in school. Penicillin is not allowed in school because we have staff and children with allergies. However, an exception is made for asthma inhalers, Epipens and Calpol. In this case all staff will be trained to administer the medication. Parental permission and dates and times of administration of medicines will be recorded, dated and signed and kept in the Administration of Medicines file in the school office.
Emergency contact information
Please ensure that all contact information is up-to -date and that you have supplied the name and telephone number of someone who can be contacted in an emergency if parents are not available.
Tealby is a Healthy School and as such is a ‘No Smoking’ site. We ask all parents and visitors to respect this policy.

The safety of the children is paramount, so we ask parents bringing children to school by car to respect this agreement. Additional parking is available at the Village Hall.
