The school meals service will provide a free hot meal for your child up to Key Stage 1. Children of parents who receive Family Income Support are entitled to receive a free school meal in Key Stage 2. School office staff will inform you about this procedure; this information is confidential.
If you wish to provide your child with a packed lunch from home, it should be in a named sealed container. To ensure that children have a balanced meal, sweets are not allowed and will be returned home, fizzy drinks (as they are pressurised flasks) and glass bottles (for safety reasons) are not allowed either. Please restrict you child to one biscuit bar and peanuts are also not permitted.
Morning Playtime Drink
Water is always available for the children in the playground and throughout school, but parents may send a carton of milk, fruit juice plus straw for their child to drink at playtime if they wish; cartons should be clearly named. Flasks, bottles, containers etc. are not allowed under any circumstances with the exception of children who have special dietary requirements, in which case a letter should be written to the Headteacher explaining the child’s need.
Milk is provided by the Local Authority for Nursery children. Food should not be sent from home unless for special dietary/medical reasons; in such cases please make arrangements with the Headteacher. A piece of fruit will be available for all children to have sometime during the morning session. Please inform the school in writing if there is a problem with your child eating a particular fruit.
