School Dinners and SnacksEmma Livermore
Children have the choice of bringing in a packed lunch for lunch time or of having a hot school meal.
As from September 2014 our Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children are entitled to Universal Infant Free School Meals under a Government initiative.
They also have the choice of bringing in a snack or participating in a Government scheme (only for certain age groups).
Please send packed lunches in an appropriate container, clearly labelled with the child’s name and class.
For Health and Safety reasons we request that you do not send your child in with:
- glass bottles
- all form of nuts and sesame seeds (due to some children being allergic to them).
We are a Healthy School so please do not include:
- chocolate items
- fizzy drinks
Children bringing in a packed lunch place them on the trolley located in their classroom ready for their lunch time.
The school offers paid hot school meals on a daily basis of £2.00 per meal for those who would like one as well as Free School Meals and Universal School Meals. The meals come from Chartwells.
- Food Allergies: If your child has a food allergy, please contact the office to request a ‘Special Dietary & Allergy Form’. Please see the website for details of the allergens in the meals.
- Menu Selection: The menu will rotate over a three week period. Current details can be seen on Chartwells website.
- Educational Trips: If your child is involved in an educational trip and will be away from school during the lunch break than a packed lunch alternative will be available.
Children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 have a daily snack of fruit or vegetable provided free through a Government scheme. Children in Key Stage 2 may bring a named snack from home for morning break. This should be a piece of fresh fruit or vegetable or dried fruit e.g. raisins. Drinks of water are available from the fountains during both break times and at lunchtime. Children may bring a clear bottle (with a sports type non spill cap) filled with water for use in the classroom.
