Eating healthy

BMPS is a Health Promoting School and recognises the importance of eating healthy food. When your child starts at BMPS, we ask that you sign a healthy food policy document. The purpose is to encourage the school community to provide healthy food options for the children at school by prohibiting certain foods and drinks at school.


  • All families will be notified about food and drink items that are not allowed at school.
  • The school will incorporate Healthy Eating programmes as part of the school's Health Education and Health Promoting Schools programme.
  • The following food and drink items are not permitted at BMPS on normal school days:
      • Large bags of chips and similar products.
      • Any form of fizzy drinks, cans or bottles of juice or similar (milk and water only).
      • Any energy or high caffeine drinks.
      • Pies that do not have the Healthy tick.
      • Fast foods such as McDonalds, Burger King, KFC etc.
      • Large cookies or packets of biscuits.
      • Chocolate bars or sweets except when provided by the school on special occasions.

If the items above are brought to school they will be confiscated and not returned. A basic alternative lunch will be provided for the child.

Please note: The tuck-shop is not currently operating

The school tuck-shop is a service that is provided at the school. The school makes a concerted effort to ensure that the food offered in the tuck-shop is the healthiest we can provide. Most items on the menu have the Heart Foundation tick or seal of approval.

The tuck-shop is open from 8:00 - 8:55am for children to order their lunches.

Parents are able to order lunches until 9:30am.

Please see the current tuck-shop menu below.
