All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to free school dinners. From year 3 meals need to be paid for. Menus are sent home each term so you can talk to your child about the meals they will be having.
We are aware that some children can be fussy eaters so please speak to your child's class teacher or to Mrs Bradley if you have concerns about your child having a school dinner. However, starting school is often an ideal time to encourage your child to be more adventurous with trying new foods.
When children start in Reception the class teacher and teaching assistant will go into the dinner hall with the children to encourage them to try new foods, to use a knife and fork correctly and to help them to enjoy eating together as a class. There is a section for you to complete on the Admission Forms about any allergies or dietary requirements your child may have.
Packed lunches should be provided in a suitable box and should be wholesome, i.e. no sweets, chocolates, fizzy drinks or crisps. Drinks should be in an unbreakable, leak-proof container. Lunch boxes can be dropped off in your child's classroom at morning drop-off. If your child changes their lunchtime preference, you must let us know in writing. Forms are available outside the school office.
The school provides fruit in the morning for pupils in KS1. Children should bring a named bottle of water to school every day which they can drink in class or on the playground.
No hard sweet, no nuts or products containing nuts are allowed in school at any time.
