At BPS, we encourage the children to maintain a healthy diet, eat balanced meals and try new foods.  There will always be members of staff on hand to help children while they are choosing and eating their meals. We routinely cater for halal, gluten and dairy free diets and are a nut-free school.  If your child suffers from any allergies or has any dietary requirements, please do let us know.

We provide a homemade snack at morning break, and children can bring their own healthy snack if they want to. In our Early Years classes we provide fruit for the children sit down and share at snacktime.

Banstead Prep’s catering service is provided by Lexington Independents.
