Parents are often very generous when it is their child’s birthday, but treats should not be sent to school for distribution to friends. The exception is birthday cake, which should be sliced and individually wrapped at home. Teachers will then distribute it at school to be taken home at the end of the day.
Cake sales, to raise money for charity, will be held sparingly and parents and children will be urged to donate home-made cakes.
Teachers will occasionally distribute small treats for children – for example at Christmas and Easter or for a school celebration.
