School Dinners

Healthy meals are cooked on the premises.  Our cook strives to serve enjoyable meals and menus are available on request.

All Reception and Key Stage One children are entitled to receive a Free School Meal.

Packed Lunches

Children who do not have a school meal usually bring a COLD PACKED LUNCH.  As we are a ‘healthy school’, any sweet or sugary items should be kept to a minimum.

According to NHS choices a balanced lunchbox should contain:
- Starchy foods like bread, rice, potatoes or pasta.
- Protein foods like meat, fish, eggs or beans.
- A dairy item, like cheese or yoghurt.
- Vegetables or salad and a portion of fruit.

Healthy packed lunches should be brought to school in a secure container labelled with the child’s name.  Water is available but many parents prefer to supply a carton of drink.  Children do not bring glass bottles, fizzy drinks or sweets into school.

We hope that the children enjoy their meals in school and we want lunchtime to be a happy, social event with friendship groups and support wherever possible.  We treat our children with respect and expect them to show similar respect to other pupils and to adults in the dining room.  The children themselves have helped school meal times evolve into pleasant sessions – we are always grateful when pupils give feedback which helps school move forward.

Please respect our policy on healthy eating and dental care!
