Lunch Menus

We have lunchtime supervisors to care for the children. We encourage children to be independent so your child will be allowed to decide when they have had enough to eat.

If your child does have eating problems or allergies please talk to Mrs Anderson or your child’s teacher.


School meals

School meals are prepared on the premises. They are served in the school hall by the Catering Manager (Mrs Morrell) and the catering assistants (Mrs Bussey & Mrs Wakeling). Meals for all Infant School children are currently provided free of charge through the Universal Free School Meal system.

There is the opportunity for families to apply for the school to claim Pupil Premium Funding. This is determined by family income and benefit details. Please contact the office for more details.


Packed lunches

If you would prefer, your child may bring a packed lunch. Your child’s lunchbox will need to be labelled. Any uneaten food will be sent home so that you can see if you are sending too much. All drinks need to be in an unbreakable container with a screw top lid. Fizzy drinks, chocolates and sweets are not allowed because we wish to teach your child how to care for their teeth.

Please do not send any nut products in your child’s lunchbox as we have some children in school with nut allergies.


Lunchtime playtimes

After eating their lunch (or before in the case of the Year 2 children), children will play in the playground. Children are encouraged to play games with each other and toys such as skipping ropes and balls are made available for them.

We do have some clubs which staff run at lunchtime, these are currently: calligraphy, art, school newspaper and Spanish.
