School Lunches

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a school lunch at no charge. We strongly encourage all children in these year groups, to have a healthy and nutritious meal during their day at school. 

If you are a parent of a child going into Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 or Year 6 in September 2021 you will need to register on the new school meals payment system.  When you register your child – please choose their NEW class (ie the one they are going into in September 2021).

Meals cost £2.35 per day per pupil and £11.75 per week per pupil.

Packed Lunches

Children may bring a packed lunch which should be in a suitable plastic container that can easily be stored on the trolley. The container must be marked with your child’s name and class. Please note for reasons of Health & Safety, packed lunches must not include cans, glass containers, fizzy drinks or sweets.  Nuts or peanut butter are not allowed in school as some of the children have severe allergies. We require that packed lunches are in line with our healthy eating approach and therefore sweets/chocolate/cakes must not be included in packed lunches. Only baked crisps are allowed and every Friday children are allowed one treat- a biscuit/ cake. For information on what is allowed/ not allowed in packed lunches, please see our Healthy Lunches Guide 2022-23 

Free School Meals

From September 2014, all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a Free School Meal. If you want your child to have a Free School Meal, you will need to fill in a form with your name, your child’s name, date of birth and National Insurance number. This helps the school caterer know how much food to purchase. It also enables the school to receive the maximum funding available in relation to Free School Meals, so that more money can be spent on purchasing books, organising trips, improving the school etc.

Golden Table

As part of our promotion of healthy eating, we have launched a GOLDEN TABLE. In our weekly celebration assembly, children who had 100% attendance for the week get a chance to be randomly selected to join the Golden Table. They will enjoy special treatment including drinking fruit squash, eating off a golden plate and eating delicious fruit! 

Here are some of the children’s thoughts:

I like eating off a golden plate!- Mohammad

I love the juicy strawberries.- Elias

It is so golden! It made me feel special.- Danah
