Food & Drink
Your child may go home for lunch if you wish but most children stay in school and eat a packed lunch or hot school meal.
Our hot school meals are all freshly prepared on site each day. By following strict nutritional guidelines, we ensure our children eat healthy and delicious meals. There are regular theme days and a Golden Table on Friday. The children really enjoy the food and the social aspect of eating together.
If your child is bringing a packed lunch, please ensure that lunch boxes and drink containers are unbreakable and clearly named. Children should not bring fizzy drinks or sweets. Foods containing nuts or kiwi fruits are not allowed, as we have several children who have a severe allergic reaction if they come into contact with these food items. Water is available if required, although it is preferable for children to have their own drink.
Families who are in receipt of certain benefits may qualify for free school meals. Please enquire at the office for more details, or contact the Benefits Agency direct.
The school recognises that it is important for children to drink water during the day and pupils are permitted to bring water bottles into lessons. These can be refilled from water coolers at appropriate times during the school day. As we are a healthy school, only fresh/dried fruit or raw vegetables should be eaten as a break time snack.
