Water Bottles

Water is vital for everyone and in children it plays an especially critical role in maintaining health and wellbeing. Studies have shown that children who do not drink enough water are more prone to tiredness, poor concentration and dehydration. As a school we encourage the children to drink water throughout the day by using individual water bottles. The bottles are kept in a specially designated area in each classroom where they can be easily accessed throughout the day. The ’Friends of Dothill’ (PTA) will provide a water bottle for EYFS children. Everyone else should purchase a suitable bottle (not glass) from a local supplier and send that into school with your child.  Please ensure the water bottle is named so your child uses their own bottle. The bottle should be taken home and washed on a regular basis, and returned full of plain waterNO OTHER DRINKS PLEASE. If your child runs out of water during the day, they can ask in their class for their bottle to be re-filled. They will also use their water bottle in the hall whilst eating their lunch.
