Packed Lunches

Children bringing a packed lunch must do so in an appropriate container or lunch box. As a Healthy School, we do not allow fizzy drinks or sweets in packed lunches. Children should bring a straw or plastic beaker for their drink or have a suitable drinking bottle (the drink must be water, pure fruit juice, cordial, milk or a yogurt drink). If a dessert is included then they must also bring a spoon.  All packaging and uneaten food will be taken home.

We have 8 Lunchtime Supervisory Assistants who look after the children over the lunch period.

Healthy eating is promoted in our school, with free fruit each morning for Key Stage 1 children. Children in Key Stage 2 may bring a piece of fruit to school each day for a snack if they wish. 

Celebration Lunches

At different times during the year, our fabulous catering team help us to celebrate local traditions and events by providing a special lunch. Our cook, Miss Hall, and her team have created special meals which the children and staff have enjoyed together, including:

  • a street party for the Queen’s Jubilee
  • cultural days with food from China and the USA
  • a spooky halloween feast
  • pancakes on Shrove Tuesday
  • a colourful Easter lunch

Everyone at school always looks forward to our school Christms lunch too. A tradition most of us will have enjoyed when at school continues today, complete with crackers, decorations and lovely festive food.
