Lunch in School

All children eat school dinners in the same hall with Lunchtime assistants to help if needed. Children have a drink of water with their meal.

School menus incorporate the new EU Allergen Law came in to effect on the 13th December 2014 and also the new School Food Standards which started 1st January 2015.

Sandwich Arrangements

Each Year group has a trolley for lunch boxes which are moved into the school hall by lunchtime assistants. When it is your child’s lunchtime they collect their lunch box and put it back when finished.

Please ensure that all Lunch boxes are clearly labelled with your child’s name and year group.

Please ensure that your child brings a water bottle to school with them, which must contain water, dilute and juice or carbonated drinks are not allowed. This is inline with our Healthy Schools Policy.

When all children have finished their lunch they go outside to play.Children in Key Stage 1 have 1 hour and 15 minutes for lunch and children in Key Stage 2 have 1 hour.

Healthy Eating

We always encourage our children to eat healthily. Every morning children in Key Stage 1 have a piece of fruit with either a carton of milk or water.

At lunchtime children who have school dinners must eat either the vegetable or salad option. Fruit is always on the menu as a dessert.

We use no salt in any of our cooking and flavour the meals with herbs and tomato purée.

We only use seasonal ingredients for our school dinners. We also incorporate cultural celebrations into our meals.

Children also learn the positives and negatives of eating healthily in their PHSCE and Science lessons.
