We offer facilities at school for children to bring their own packed lunch and drink in unbreakable containers or to select a hot school meal. This service is provided by Shire Services and a choice of three different hot meals is provided each day, including a vegetarian option. The menus are based on a three week cycle and you can choose to order a hot meal for a whole week or select individual days.
All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will be provided with a hot school meal. This means that your child can enjoy a hot school meal every day with no cost to yourself. However, in order that we don't create surplus waste, we will be requesting that you select which days you would like your child to receive their meals.
If you believe that you may be eligible for Free School Meals, please discuss this with the Head teacher as other benefits, such as uniform grants are also available. Free school meals for Key Stage 2 children can be provided as part of the Family Support Benefit Scheme for which an application form is available from the School office and is treated in the strictest of confidence.
Children are discouraged from eating chocolate or drinking fizzy drinks during lunchtimes. As we are a Healthy School, we encourage fruit or raw vegetables.
During meal times, children are encouraged to maintain good manners and are ably assisted by our caring lunchtime supervisors.
Milk and Fruit
Milk can be provided daily for children in Nursery who request it at mid morning break. This is an EU subsidised scheme, and is free for children up to the age of 5. Other children may bring a drink of fruit juice or water if they wish as we value the benefits of being hydrated throughout the day. Children in the Foundation Stage and Key Stage One are provided with a piece of fruit each break time, courtesy of the government's national fruit scheme, whilst children in Key Stage 2 may bring a healthy snack or fruit to eat at playtime.
Different activities are offered during lunchtime for pupils to engage in. Outdoor spaces are 'zoned' with a variety of equipment available to use and take part in physical activity, whilst lunchtime supervisors are trained to actively engage with pupils to provide a happy, calm and safe environment.
We also offer an indoor provision during lunchtime that gives pupils the opportunity to take part in structured activities such as board games, creative crafts, Lego construction and much more.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
