School Meals & Packed Lunches

All pupils in Reception, Years 1 and 2 are eligible for the Governments universal free school meal scheme.  Pupils in Years 3, 4, 5, and 6 will need to have their meals paid for online via the ParentPay system.

However, if you prefer you are welcome to provide your child with a PACKED LUNCH.

If you choose to provide a packed lunch please be aware that we like to promote ‘healthy eating‘ and ask that fizzy drinks, sweets, crisps and biscuits are not included in pupil’s lunch boxes.

If your child has any specific dietary requirements you will need to complete a ‘special diet request form’ and provide medical evidence in order for the caterers to provide a bespoke menu.

It would also be very helpful if fruit that is difficult to peel i.e. an orange is already peeled for your child and if you could help your child learn how to open their lunchbox, yoghurt pots and other containers. Please name all lunch boxes and water bottles.

Nuts

We are a nut free school because we have several pupils who have severe, life-threatening allergies to nuts that require emergency medical treatment. Please can you help us to protect these children by being vigilant when providing your child with packed lunch and when bringing any foods such as snacks and birthday cakes.

Snacks

Pupils in Nursery and Reception are part of the Governments fruit and milk scheme and will be offered this daily.

Fruit continues to be offered to Years 1 and 2.

Older pupils are able to bring a healthy snack from home to have at break time. The snack should be kept in their school bag and not in packed lunch boxes as these are only accessible at lunchtimes.

All pupils are encouraged to bring a drink of water in a plastic bottle with a sports lid for use during the day.
