Lunch time at school

 

Our talented kitchen team work hard to make lunches that are delicious and nutritious. It always helps if your child has an idea what they would like before reaching the serving hatch. Menus are displayed around school and in the dining hall. Younger children would benefit from looking with their parents - maybe on the playground notice-boards or on here.

Please see the school dinner menus below.

Meals are prepared and cooked on school premises. Dinner money is collected and counted on a Monday morning when one of the office staff sets aside time specifically for this task. Money should be handed into the class teacher in a sealed envelope marked 'Dinner Money', with your child's name, class, date and amount on.

Please use this guide to work out how much to send in.

5 lunches (i.e a normal week) = £11.00

4 lunches = £8.80 

3 lunches = £6.60

2 lunches = £4.40

1 lunch = £2.20   

 

Weekly amount for 2 children = £22.00

Weekly amount for 3 children = £33.00

We ask for one weeks notice in writing if you change the lunchtime arrangements because food will have already been ordered.

 

Free School Meals

Please register your eligibility for free school meals, regardless of your child's age. We receive extra funding for each child registered. This money is carefully spent, ensuring that children with this entitlement benefit most.

Packed lunches

Packed lunches brought from home will be eaten in the 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 regularly having crisps, chocolate or biscuits, and fizzy drinks are not allowed. If you would like any more information or help with ideas for healthy lunches on a budget please contact the school.  

We want lunchtime to be a happy and social event and we hope that children will enjoy their meals in school. We expect children to behave with courtesy and good manners at all times. One of the foundation stage staff stays with the children until they are settled with the midday staff and happily eating.

The NHS site gives great information about healthy packed lunches, also it links to other sites for tasty ideas!
