School Meals

Lunchtime arrangements

At lunchtime there are three opportunities for the children.

They can:

  1. Have a cooked meal from the school kitchen
  2. Bring a packed lunch with food from home
  3. Go home for lunch

A set meal and drink costs £2.10.

School meals are freshly cooked on the premises by the kitchen staff.

There is a choice of menu each day and the kitchen can cater for a range of dietary and cultural needs. There is also a halal choice available each day.

Children in Reception, Year 1 and 2 are entitled to a free school dinner through the Government Universal Infant Free School Meals scheme.

Children of families in receipt of some benefits are entitled to free school meals. Please contact the school office for further information.

Any queries about school meals should be addressed to the kitchen manager who can be contacted through the school office. The school kitchen is not run by the school but by a company called BT Together. Their contact address is:

Packed lunches

Some children prefer to eat a packed lunch prepared at home. Children who bring packed lunches should bring their own spoons and forks. Sweets, fizzy drinks and cans of drink are not allowed as the school promotes healthy eating.

If your child prefers to have a packed lunch we would appreciate it if you would mark the container with the child’s name and class.

Free break time snacks for all children

All children get a free piece of fruit each day at break time. For children aged 7 or under this is provided by the national Free Fruit For Schools scheme. For children older than 7 this is provided by the school for free.

Drinking Water

We encourage all children to bring in a water bottle from home so they can drink in school throughout the day.
