PARENTS ZONE QUICK LINKS
Lunchtimes at school are an opportunity for all children throughout the school to join together to eat their lunch and to play in the playground. We operate two sittings where children sit at tables in the hall with a mixture of children from their own year group and across the school. This allows children to make new friendships with children from other year groups; we also find that older children enjoy helping their younger school friends.
Children may stay for a hot meal or bring their own packed lunch in a named container. Hot meals, salads, jacket potatoes and sandwich lunches are made on site by Kingswood Catering Services. These meals are in line with DFE healthy eating requirements.
We encourage the children to eat a balanced diet which we regularly promote through our curriculum and visitors into school. Please do not send sweets, drinks in glass bottles, cans or fizzy drinks. All utensils for packed lunches, for example spoons, should be brought to school in lunchboxes. Nut products should not be sent into school as we have a number of children with a severe intolerance to nuts.
Children may go home for their lunch. KS1 children should be collected from the main reception at 12.00 and KS2 children at 12.05am. All children should be brought back to school at 1.00 in time for afternoon lessons.
Our school meals are cooked in our own kitchens by Kingswood Caterers.
There is a wide choice of food available for the children to choose from, including vegetarian meals, jacket potato, packed lunch or main hot meal.
From September 2014 all children in Reception Year and KS1 are eligible for a free hot meal under the Universal Infant Free School Meal (UIFSM) scheme. Meals can be booked direct with Kingswood. If you require any further information regarding UIFSM or Free School Meals please contact the school office or click on the link below.
