School Meals

Snacks

Please feel free to provide your child with a healthy snack for playtime, named if possible. All Foundation stage and Key Stage 1 children are provided with a piece of fruit daily, through the DCSF scheme. A Healthy Fruit Club is available daily for children, at a cost of 20 pence per piece of fruit.

Lunch arrangements

Children staying for lunch either have the choice of school meals (currently £2.30 per day), or a packed lunch. This would need to be sent in a suitable lunch box and a cup or straw provided for their drink, so that it is not drunk straight from a bottle. In the interest of promoting a healthy diet please do not provide your child with sweets, chocolate or fizzy drinks for consumption at any time of the day.

The children have lunch in the School Hall with our lunchtime supervisors.
