Food and Drink
Meals are prepared at school offering a choice of menus. Alternatively, children may bring a packed lunch, preferably in one small container, or go home for lunch.
Drinks are provided with school dinners and water is available for packed lunch children.
Teachers are generally off-duty at dinnertime but the Headteacher (or their representative) is always on site supervising the lunch hour. Children are also supervised throughout dinnertime by our welfare assistants both in the hall and on the playground or school field.
All children eat in the hall where they are encouraged to be polite and to display good table manners.
Payment for school dinners should be made weekly, or monthly, in advance via ParentPay.
All pupils in Key Stage One are entitled to a free school meal. Your child may also be eligible for free school meals beyond this stage and other educational welfare benefits. Please contact the school office for further information.
DRINKS IN SCHOOL
For a nominal annual amount, refrigerated milk is available mid-morning for KS1 children. Alternatively, pupils may bring water (not flavoured) from home in a plastic container (no glass bottles are allowed in school). Water from our drinking fountains is available for all children throughout the day.
All children are strongly encouraged to bring in fresh fruit or vegetables to eat on the playground during breaks. Toast is available for a nominal fee from the school cook. In addition children in KS1 receive a piece of fruit each day as part of our commitment to being a healthy school with Healthy School Status. We do not allow cereal bars or sugary snacks at break times.
PLEASE NOTE THAT, DUE TO SOME OF OUR STAFF AND PUPILS HAVING SEVERE NUT ALLERGIES, WE ARE A NUT FREE SCHOOL .
