Children can enjoy a hot meal or bring a packed lunch from home. The hot meal is cafeteria style, nutritionally balanced and freshly prepared and cooked on the premises by our own school cook. There is a choice of main courses, vegetables and hot or cold desserts. The children are also provided with a drink.
Parents are asked to ensure that sandwich meals are nutritionally balanced and carefully stored. Drinks should be brought in a sturdy plastic flask, screw top plastic bottle or carton. Please do not send glass bottles or canned drinks.
It is really important that parents keep school informed of any special dietary needs / allergies so that necessary support/ procedures can be put in place.
Hot meals and sandwiches are eaten in the dining hall or hall, supervised by lunchtime supervisors, who also look after the children in the playground before and after they eat their lunch.
At lunchtimes children have the opportunity to play with friends across different year groups and our Play Leaders facilitate a range of games and activities. We have a team of peer mediators who are on the playground supporting children.
