Platts Heath Primary aims to be a “Healthy School” and all children may bring a piece of fruit or vegetable as a snack for morning break.  The government provides free fruit/vegetables each day for all children in Curie. Parks and Pankhurst class receive free fruit every day, paid for by the Government sports funding initiative.


If you wish your child to have milk, please speak to the Office Manager.  Children under 5 are eligible for free school milk.  Water is available in all classrooms.


Please encourage your child to have breakfast as it has been proven that children are more alert and ready to learn if they have had food and a drink before school.
