The Bitesite

Students are reminded that only food that is purchased in the bitesite should be consumed there.  If anyone is leaving school at break or lunchtime to purchase food from local shops they must eat their food before they return to school.  If anyone is seen eating/drinking items which has been brought into school, they will be confiscated and can be collected at the end of the school day.  Anyone bringing in a packed lunch to have at the start of lunchtime will still be allowed to eat this in the bitesite.

Please also ensure that you tidy up your table before you leave it using the bins provided.
