Teachers are free to take – and keep – any item from pupils’ lunchboxes if they think they are unhealthy or inappropriate, the government has said.
Parents were outraged last month when it emerged children had scotch eggs and a Peperami confiscated under health eating policies.
Now ministers have backed the move, giving staff freedom to ‘confiscate, keep or destroy’ anything deemed to break school policies and setting out the procedure for carrying out lunchbox inspections.
…Vikki Laws, of Colchester, said her daughter Tori, six, was not allowed to eat her Peperami sausage snack, which was confiscated and only returned at the end of the day with a note from teachers.
She said another parent was also told her child was not allowed to have scotch eggs in her lunch box.
