New Food Policy

Posted by: lwheelock7335 | January 15, 2018 | No Comment |

Hi all, 

We are currently in the midst of updating our school food policy. It is important that you, the parents are involved in this update, and that your voices and opinions on the matter are heard. We are posting a copy of our draft of this policy here, and we would greatly appreciate feedback on this. 

Please email any feedback to info@rathnurens.ie


Whole School Food Policy Rathnure N.S


Our school, is dedicated to providing an environment that promotes healthy eating and enables all to make informed choices about all aspects of food and not just the lunchbox.  It is our aim to make the healthier choice, the easier choice. With this in mind, our Whole School Food Policy was formulated and guided by Irish Healthy Eating Guidelines and Irish Food Pyramid and Healthy Lifestyles Circular 0013/2016.

The policy was developed by our Health Promoting Schools Committee, in consultation with staff, pupils and parents under the headings of Environment, Curriculum and Learning, Policy and Planning and Partnerships.

First Class took the Seat Belt Sheriff pledge and received badges and certificates. They will set a good example every time they travel by buckling up as soon as they get in the car and by reminding others to do so too. Wearing seat-belts saves lives! Maybe its something we could all do!
