All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school lunch.
We still ask that parents complete the free school meals application form if in receipt of benefits as this adds several thousand pounds funding per child to the money we have to spend on your child’s education.
Our school canteen provides a healthy, balanced menu, or parents can send their child with a balanced, healthy packed lunch.
Tips on healthy lunchboxes can be found on the NHS Change 4 Life website and you may also like to consider the suggestions below.
Children may bring fruit or vegetables to school for a breaktime snack. Please do not send your child with crisps or chocolate bars for breaktime.
A healthy and colourful lunchbox will help your child to concentrate and work hard all day. Here are some ideas of what you could include:
- a sandwich with cheese, ham, tuna, egg, or hummus
- fresh vegetables such as cucumber or carrot sticks
- fresh fruit such as an apple or satsuma
- a sweet treat such as a yoghurt, cake, or flapjack
- a drink such as water, milk, or low-sugar squash
Children may drink water in classrooms and at lunchtimes - please make sure their bottle is labelled. Please do not put squash or juice in your child's bottle.
Chewing gum and sweets
Chewing gum and sweets are not allowed in school. If found these will be held by teachers and returned at the end of the school day.
