Lunchtime Arrangements

At lunchtimes there are five Mid-day Meals Supervisors who take care of the children whilst they eat their lunch and play on the playground. Children may bring a packed lunch or alternatively a hot meal or packed lunch can be purchased from the LA meals contractor, CHARTWELLS.


Cooked Meals

We have an on-site kitchen where hot meals are prepared and cooked daily. Due to the Government's Universal Free School Meals scheme for Infants, no child at our school needs to pay for school dinner or a packed lunch.  If your child has any dietry requirements please write this in a letter so that Chartwells are able to ensure that their dietary needs are met.  

If you choose for your child to have a packed lunch from home, it needs to be healthy.  For example, a sandwich, a piece of fruit, yoghurt and vegetable sticks.  Children are not allowed to bring in chocolate bars, sweets or fizzy drinks.  


Playtime Snacks

Being part of the Government’s ‘Free Fruit and Veg’ scheme, fruit or vegetables are available for the children at break time. Alternatively children may bring in a Cereal Bar or Raisins from home.

As part of our Personal, Social and Health Education programme, we place a lot of emphasis on healthy eating and as such the children are not permitted to eat crisps, sweets or chocolate at playtimes.

We are also part of the Cool Milk scheme, whereby children under five or who are entitled to Free School Meals are entitled to FREE milk. For children over five, milk can be purchased to drink at break times. If you are interested please ask at the Office for a leaflet.
