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. We ask parents not to send anything containing nuts to school. We have a number of children who are allergic to nuts and our school is a ‘NUT FREE ZONE’.
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.
Catering Provision (September 2021-2022) - North Yorkshire County Catering
Meals will be provided by North Yorkshire County Council (https://www.northyorks.gov.uk/school-meals) who are a specialist catering provider within the education sector.
Please see the Autumn Term menu below.
If your child requires a special diet or has an allergy, please contact the school office and we will send you a Special Diet/Allergy (SD1) form to complete. Alternatively, please find the SD1 form below. This form should be returned to the school office, accompanied by a copy of the signed referral letter from a medical professional.
Meal prices are £2.50 for a pupil meal. Within this meal price the school is able to recoup a few pence per meal, which is being used fully to cover various related costs such as the management, monitoring and administration of the contract, dinner money transaction fees, utilities, waste and other kitchen service costs.
