The school lunch break is from 11.50am to 1pm.  Our school meal provider Dolce provides cooked school meals along with side salad and bread.  Dinner money should be paid in advance, on a weekly or half termly basis via Live Kitchen.  This can be done online or via telephone for card payments.  Their telephone number is 01942 707709. 

 

Provision is made for children who wish to bring a packed lunch to eat at school.  These lunches should be in a suitable container.  All drinks should be in unbreakable containers.  Parents are asked to support our healthy eating drive by packing fruit and yoghurts rather than crisps and chocolate.

 

Free School Meals - important message

 

In certain circumstances, parents may be able to apply for free school meals for their child.  There are many advantages to being registered for free school meals even if your child does not choose to eat and and prefers to bring in a packed lunch.  Pupil Premium is allocated to children entitled to free school meals which include free Extra Curricular After School Clubs, Music lessons and French lessons for example.

Free school meals can be claimed if the family is in receipt of:

  • Income support or Income Based Jobseeker's Allowance
  • Income Related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • Child Tax Credit but NOT Working Tax Credit with a household income under £16,190
  • Guaranteed Element of Pension Credit
  • Universal Credit (please note not all elements of UC qualify for Free School Meals)

If you think you may be entitled to Free School Meals please apply online  Free School Meals information

 

Healthy Eating

As part of our Healthy Eating Plan, and to encourage our children to eat fruit at playtime, a selection of seasonal fruit is available to all infant, reception and nursery children.  

Junior children can bring in a piece of fruit for morning break.

 

Packed Lunches

Packed lunches brought from home will be eaten in the school hall under the supervision of the Midday Assistants.

 

We encourage healthy choices.

These should include some of the following; a starchy food such as bread, pasta, potato or rice, a protein food such as chicken, ham, egg or beans, a dairy food such as milk, cheese or yoghurt, some fruit or vegetables and a drink of fruit juice, water or a smoothie.

We discourage children regularly having crisps, chocolate or biscuits, and fizzy drinks are not allowed.
