Food in school

Our children are busy growing, not just through their learning, but physically too. We know that to perform at their best, they need a balanced and nutritious diet.

Our kitchen team cook meals on-site in our modern kitchen and provide children with a delicious hot school meal. We typically offer three choices, including at least one vegetarian option, which must be paid for and booked in advance using our online payment system, Scopay.  Using this system, children can choose a mixture of school meals and home packed lunches.

 

If your child has a special diet due to dietary or medical needs please complete the special diet request form which can be downloaded here.

 

Free School Meals are available to those children who are in receipt of certain benefits. If you think your family may be eligible please click here for further information or speak to the school office.

 

Packed lunches

As part of our healthy eating policy, we encourage pupils who eat a packed lunch to enjoy a balanced diet including, for example, a sandwich, cereal bar and a piece of fruit. If your child brings a packed lunch to school, it must be in an unbreakable container, clearly labelled with the child’s name and class and all drinks should be in plastic containers. Please note we are a nut-free school.

 

Fruit and drinks

Children may bring in a healthy snack from home.  Mid-morning snacks may include a piece of fresh or dried fruit. Please ensure children do not bring in biscuits or chocolate bars for snack time.  All children must bring a labelled water bottle to school.  These can be refilled at water stations throughout the school day.
