Lunchtime is from 12 noon until 1.00pm. Children may either have a school dinner, bring a packed lunch, or go home for lunch. The overwhelming majority of children have a school lunch. School dinners are freshly prepared and cooked on the premises and are healthy and appetizing. Pupils have a choice of a vegetarian option each day. School dinners should be paid for in advance using ParentPay.
Packed lunches should be sent in an appropriate container. The food should be such that your child can manage to eat it himself/herself at lunchtime. Water will be provided. Children are encouraged to finish their lunch. Fizzy drinks, canned drinks, glass bottles and flasks must not be brought to school.
Our aim is for the school to be a ‘NUT FREE ZONE’ as we have a number of children and staff who are allergic to nuts. We ask parents not to send anything containing nuts to school in packed lunches. In addition, for children who have school dinners, while all reasonable precautions are taken to ensure all products supplied by our caterers are free from nuts, we cannot guarantee this to be the case as products may be subject to external influences which cannot be controlled.
A team of Midday Supervisory Assistants look after the children in the dining room and on the playground during the lunchtime break. The Acting Headteacher and senior teaching staff retain overall control of the arrangements.
