Eating at School

All infant children are entitled to a free school meal under the Universal Infant Free School Meals scheme. School meals provision is through Caterlink and are prepared and cooked on the premises with fresh ingredients and a good variety of fruit and vegetables.

Packed lunches should be healthy and balanced and should not contain chocolate bars or fizzy drinks. Children are encouraged not to bring crisps every day and sharing their food is discouraged.

In school we believe lunch time is an important time of the day when we can:

  • Nurture and build friendships
  • Teach table manners
  • Promote a balanced diet

Fruit in Schools Scheme

We also take part in the National Fruit in Schools Scheme where every child in school has a piece of fruit as a snack each day. Children are encouraged to eat the fruit provided and to drink milk or water.
