Meals at school

The school has its own kitchen and two-course meals are available, as well as the additional option for children to choose from an extensive salad bar.

There are also facilities for children to have packed lunches.

The eating of sweets is not permitted at school so please bear this in mind when making packed lunches. This rule helps to support dental hygiene and healthy eating teaching given in school.

Children who stay at school during the lunch break, whether for the school meal or for a packed lunch, are expected to behave themselves and to display good table manners. They should be able to handle correctly a knife, fork and spoon. Moving from table to table and eating with hands, instead of the cutlery provided, is not permitted.

Children having packed lunches should provide their own knife, fork, spoon and cup, etc. and bring them to school in a suitable container. Drinking directly from flasks or cans will not be permitted.

Cost of school meals

Dinners should be paid via Parent Pay and you will be given a login and password once your child has started school.

Milk and apple juice

Milk and apple juice is available at school and payment for this is requested termly in advance on the last day of the previous half term, via Parent Pay.

Schedules of payments are emailed out regularly and you will be given login and password details once your child starts school.

Children are also encouraged to bring a named, empty water bottle into school which can be filled regularly from school water coolers.

Mid morning snack

Children throughout the school are encouraged to bring a small portion of fresh or dried fruit for a mid morning snack. This is again in support of healthy life styles and in introducing this, we have seen an increase in concentration levels during the second half of the morning.
