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 two 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.
Information regarding our caterers and the current menu, can be found here.
Special dietary requirements:
If your child has a special diet - religious, ethical or medical diet - please complete the online form which can be found on Allergies and Special Diets - Twelve15 (itstwelve15.co.uk). The form should also be completed for any changes to your child's dietary requirements.
Please complete this even if your child does not have school lunches, as the school will be notified and will use this information for school trips, cookery skills and other lessons where food may be provided.
Free School Meals
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.
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.
