All children have a 15 minute morning break. Milk may be purchased in advance for infants only. Children may bring their own drink (no glass bottles or cans) and a piece of fruit for their morning break (Infant children have fruit provided as part of a national scheme). Infant children also have an afternoon break.
During lunchtime, children are looked after by eight midday supervisory assistants. School dinners are prepared and cooked on site. You may pay for these weekly, half termly or termly on a Monday. We require a half term’s notice to change to packed lunches. Children may bring a packed lunch to school, including a drink, but no glass bottles or cans. Please encourage your children to eat a sensible balanced lunch, by packing such a meal for them.
Peanuts, including peanut butter, kiwi fruit, nutella, fruit and nut bars and certain cereal bars are not allowed in packed lunches as we have a number of children with allergies to these food items.
As we are a healthy eating school, we also ask that your child should only have chocolate bars or crisps on Friday in line with children who have Friday dinner specials.
Dining Room Rules
Children having packed lunch sit around the outside of the dining room, by the windows or at the back. Some also sit in the hall.
