School Kitchen and Lunch Time

School Meals
Please be aware that due to allergies in school snacks that contain nuts must not come into school. Thank you for your understanding.
 
The children are provided with a healthy meal designed to promote sound all round physical development, and to lessen the risk of heart disease in later life. Pupils are encouraged to try a wide variety of food. Social training is also an important part of the lunch period.

School meals are currently free of charge to all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. There is a charge of £2.50 per day/ £12.50 per week for pupil meals in Nursery and Years 3, 4, 5 and 6.

Meals must be paid for in advance on Monday mornings and must be paid for on our digital payment platform- 'Schoolmoney' as we operate a cashless office.

Packed Lunches

Pupils may bring a packed lunch- we ask that this is well balanced and healthy. You should also ensure that your child has a spoon for yoghurt etc.

Any food left uneaten will be sent home so you can monitor your child’s food intake.

Fridges are provided for the cold storage of packed lunches during the day. So sorry, these are not in use during the COVID19 pandemic.

PLEASE NOTE WE ARE A NUT FREE SCHOOL

Snack Time

Children in KS1 are provided with fruit each morning. If you wish to provide your child with a snack, please only send fruit. Please ensure that grapes are cut in half lengthways to avoid choking. Similarly please cut cherry tomatoes in half.

Water

It is important that children remain well hydrated during the school day. All children are provided with a school water bottle; replacements can be purchased from the school office.

Water bottles must only contain water- not squash. It would be acceptable to add ice cubes or fresh fruit if your child would prefer.

Fizzy drinks are not permitted .

Usually each Monday 7 lucky children are chosen to sit at the Golden Table- complete with golden tablecloth and candelabras. This is a special reward given by the lunchtime supervisors to the best behaved children, who are given two golden tickets to the golden table. Pupils can invite a friend or relative to have lunch with them on the following Friday. Remember to exchange your golden ticket for an ice cream!

Unfortunately during COVID19, the Golden table cannot be in operation, but will resume as soon as possible.

Where possible, ingredients and produce are locally sourced. The map below shows where our food comes from.
