We are very proud to have our own catering kitchen on the premises enabling our Catering Manager and Catering Assistant to offer a healthy, exciting and innovative menu.
Lunchtimes are supervised by our Midday Supervisory Assistants. The School Admin Officer, and Catering Manager are happy to discuss menus or a child’s particular dietary needs with parents.
How to Order Lunches
Lunches are to be ordered and paid for via Parentpay. Here are guidelines on how to make a lunch booking. Please ensure that you book and pay for the right type of lunch – Roe and Fallow class are Key Stage One Lunch and Muntjac and Sika are Key Stage Two Lunch.
Alternatively, children are welcome to bring in a healthy packed lunch consisting of protein, carbohydrates, fruits and vegetables. Please remember that we are a NUT AWARE SCHOOL and do not send anything in a lunch box that contains nuts.
We discourage parents from providing sweet foods, although we do accept that small amounts may be included.
Golden Table Award scheme
We are incredibly lucky to be able to provide our children with healthy and home-cooked lunches. As part of our lunch-time routine we are also able to encourage and promote good manners and behaviour whilst at the table. To recognise and celebrate just this, our lunchtime ladies have set up a Golden Table Award scheme where lovely manners and behaviours are rewarded with a golden sticker and names put on a list to be chosen to sit at the Golden
Table on a Friday lunchtime, joined by their Headteacher. This scheme applies to all, whether hot or packed lunches.
In response to parent feedback, we have set up a Snack Stop for morning play times, so that children can eat their healthy and crunchy snacks by the Friendship bench before they go off and play.
Universal Infant School Meals
Children in KS1 are all entitled to free school meals, following the Government initiate brought in September 2014, however we still ask that you submit a form with your child’s menu choices.
Nut Free School
As we have pupils with severe allergies, we are now a Nut Aware School. Please see information letter sent to parents here.
Water and Snacks
Studies show that drinking water regularly helps children’s concentration and wellbeing, so pupils are encouraged to drink water and bring a named water bottle into class each day.
Roe and Fallow class children are provided fruit and a carton of milk each day via national initiatives.
Cool Milk operate our milk scheme and milk is automatically provided for all children under five. Details of the scheme are available from www.coolmilk.com
You can still register your child after 5 years of age but you will be charged. Full details are on the cool milk website.
Older pupils are encouraged to bring fruit and vegetables to eat at break time. Crisps, sweets and biscuits are not allowed at break times, a rule which reinforces our commitment to healthy eating.
