Mid-Day Meals – NO NUTS EVER
Children can go home for lunch if parents wish but most children eat lunch at school. The school strongly encourages healthy, balanced lunches. Food containing nuts, including chocolate spreads, should not be brought as we have a number of children with serious nut allergies in school. All lunches brought into school should be in secure lunch box that is labelled. Drinks containers should be plastic or in cartoons with a straw. Children will not be allowed to eat chocolate bars, sweets or drink fizzy drinks as part of their lunch and these will be returned home if brought in by mistake.
Kingswood Catering provide a school meal service to our school. Children in EYFS and Key Stage 1 are entitled to a free meal as part of the Government’s Universal Free School Meals initiative. The children in Key Stage 2 are able to order lunches at a reasonable cost. If there are more than two children in the family Kingswood offer a special family offer to reduce the cost further.
Meals do not need to be ordered every day, or even every week. You can pick and choose when you order from the variety of meals on offer. The menus change 3 times a year and work on a 3 week cycle.
Please go onto their website and register your child and look at the current menus. Please note that all lunches will need be ordered by midnight on a Wednesday for the following week. If a lunch is not ordered, we are unlikely to be able to provide a lunch as spare meals are rarely available.

We currently hold a 5* Food Hygiene certificate for our provision of lunches in the Diner.
We currently participate in the National Schools Fruit Scheme which entitles all children aged 4 – 7 to receive free fruit which is provided at morning break time. Therefore children in years R-2 do not need to bring a snack to school. Parents of children in Years 3 - 6 are able to purchase fruit snacks from school or may provide a healthy fruit or vegetable snack for their child for morning playtime. Sugary or unhealthy snacks are not permitted.
Children under the age of 5 are entitled to free school milk and after the age of 5 this can be purchased in school. Please ask at the School Office for further details.
