School Meals & Healthy Snack

At lunchtime children may bring a packed lunch in a clearly named lunchbox or purchase a hot school meal prepared on site for a daily cost of £2.20, paid in advance (price correct at January 2020).

Hot School Meals

School meals are provided by Caterlink and the quality is monitored regularly. Children are regularly asked about their views on the range and quality of school meals and they are discussed by our school council.

Please bring money for lunches to the office in a named envelope on a Monday morning (cash or cheque made payable to Caterlink Ltd). A vegetarian option is always available but please notify us in writing if your child is vegetarian or has any food allergies.

Free meals are available for all pupils in Foundation Stage, Year 1 and Year 2 and for those parents who qualify and application forms are available from our School Office.

Packed Lunches

Parents are encouraged to provide a healthy and balanced packed lunch. Healthy Packed Lunch workshops are held each year to demonstrate a healthier lunchbox.

A packed lunch should not include:

  • sweets
  • more than one packet of crisps (baked or low fat are preferable)
  • more than one small chocolate biscuit bar
  • fizzy drinks
  • energy drinks

A packed lunch should include:

  • only small quantities of fatty or sugary foods
  • starchy, fibre rich food such as sandwiches, pitta bread, rice, pasta or potato salads with moderate quantities of meat, fish cheese, eggs or vegetarian equivalent.
  • dairy products such as yogurts or cheese
  • Plenty of fruit and vegetables.

We try to promote a polite, family dining atmosphere whilst children are eating and encourage good table manners. Our dedicated team of midday supervisors care for the children at this time and in the playground over the lunch break.

Healthy Snacks at Break time

Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 daily receive a piece of fruit or vegetable to eat at breaktime. Children in Years 3 - 6 bring in a piece of fruit or other healthy snack from home
