SCHOOL DINNERS  

     

If your child wishes to stay for school dinners, these are currently £2.00 per day (£10.00 per week). Dinner money is collected on Monday for that week. We ask that you send the Dinner Money into school in a sealed envelope with your child's name, class and the amount enclosed on the front please hand into the school office or ask your child to hand it to the class teacher.  Payment may be made in cash or on line using Agora.  

If you think you may be entitled to Free School Meals, please collect a form form the school office or download it from here, and you will be advised how to make your claim.

All food in schools must meet nutritional standards so that children have healthy, balanced diets.

This means there must be:

  • high quality meat, poultry or oily fish
  • at least 2 portions of fruit and vegetables with every meal
  • bread, other cereals and potatoes

There can't be:

  • fizzy drinks, crisps, chocolate or sweets in school meals and vending machines
  • more than 2 portions of deep-fried food a week 

 

SANDWICHES

If your child wishes to bring a packed lunch, this should be in a suitable container (not a carrier bag) marked with your child's name.  We would also recommend that a cool pack is placed inside the lunch box, as it is often very warm in school, and this helps to keep the food fresh. We encourage healthy eating in school and ask you to bear this in mind when preparing your child's lunch box.

 

SNACKTIME

We have a healthy eating policy, and do not allow sweets, crisps or drinks at break times. Your child has the option of a piece of fruit at break time.  In EYFS snack time is available for your child when they require it they also have milk and story time in the afternoon.

KS1 children receive a free fruit snack during the morning.

We operate a Tuck Shop that is available to all KS2 children, each item is 25p we aim to provide healthy snacks within Government guidelines such as yoghurt, fruit, cereal bars, water and flavoured water.  This is a non profit making provision that is organised by staff members using the childrens views and preferences.

Your child should bring with them a water bottle for their use throughout the day.
