Lunches and snacks
The children are supervised while they eat their lunch in the Hall and while outside
playing. We also appointed a Lunchtime Play Co-ordinator who plans and supports
positive play over lunchtime supporting the midday supervisors.
Hot School Meals
A hot school meals service is provided by the school, which children can sign up to and pay for on a weekly basis. The cost per week is £11.00 ( £2.20 per day). There is a choice of either a main meal option or a filled baked potato.
Free school meals
The school actively encourages families who think they may be eligible for free school meals due to income reasons to apply as those who are awarded free school meals are also entitled to free school trips, musical tuition and essential items of school uniform.
Further details may be obtained from the School Office or by going on-line to the Lincolnshire County Council website.
From September 2014 all children in Reception, Y1 and Y2 have been eligible for free universal infant hot meals if wanted and we would encourage parents to take up this offer.
Alternatively parents may provide their child with a packed lunch. Due to some children in school suffering from severe food allergies we would ask you not to send your children with nuts or nut based food, or strawberries. Fizzy drinks also are not allowed. Please ensure that lunch boxes and all drinking containers (no glass or cans) are secure. Naming the sandwich boxes would be helpful for all pupils.
We encourage our children to eat healthily and at breaks a snack of fruit or vegetable is encouraged.
Please no crisps, chocolate or sweets. Children are only allowed to eat fruit on the playground at playtimes.
As part of morning snack time, all Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 children receive a free piece of fruit each day as part of the “Healthy School Initiative”. This is normally given to them during the morning break.
There is also a free milk scheme for children under 5.
We are running the Cool Milk scheme.
All children are provided with a water bottle and have access to water throughout the day.
