Lunches and Healthy Snacks

School Lunches

Our school lunches are currently provided by Old School Kitchen. If you would like your child to have school meals, please ensure that you submit your meal choices each week to the school office by Friday morning at the latest so that they can be ordered in advance. 

All ingredients used for our school meals are fresh, seasonal and locally sourced meaning that the quality of the meals that we provide is excellent.  Children are provided with healthy meals which are both balanced and nutritious.

For greater ease of payments for our families, we shall be moving to ParentPay from September 2019 with our 3-weekly lunch menu available online to view and/or download.

Healthy Snacks

All of our pupils and families are encouraged to bring/provide a healthy choice snack for breaktimes.  As part of the school’s on-going work on health and well-being, the children have come up with their own variety of healthy choices for snack-times and understand the importance of a healthy, well-balanced diet for their future health and well-being.

We encourage our children to choose from a variety of fruit, vegetables and/or low sugar/fat snack choices with fresh water provided for them throughout the day.  Children are also encouraged to bring fresh water in a clear, water-bottle each day to school to ensure they keep hydrated.

Our youngest children are provided, free of charge, with a variety of fruits and vegetables to snack on throughout the day; they are also entitled to free-milk whilst in Early Years and Key Stage 1; Key Stage 2 children are provided with milk each day, for a small fee.

Handwashing advice

The most important thing individuals can do to protect themselves is to wash their hands more often, for at least 20 seconds, with soap and water. Public Health England recommends that in addition to handwashing before eating, and after coughing and sneezing, everyone should also wash hands after using toilets and whenever you return home.
