Children can bring a packed lunch to eat in school at lunchtime, can have a pre-ordered hot meal, or they may go home for lunch.
Children going home to lunch should not return before 12.55pm.
Packed lunches should be sent to school in a labelled container and drinks should be in a plastic container, not a glass bottle or can. For your child’s safety we do not allow hot or fizzy drinks. We advise the inclusion of an ice pack in warmer weather. Children are encouraged to eat whatever has been provided. We ask that you provide a straw for drinks and a spoon for yoghurts. We are unable to accommodate warm food or cooked mid-day meals from home. As there are a number of pupils with severe nut allergies, we request that nuts and nut products are not packed in lunch boxes.
Each class eats their lunch in the hall or their own classroom under supervision.
If you receive Income Support your child is entitled to a free school meal; application forms are available from the school office.
As part of the NCC hot school meals scheme, we also offer hot meals in school.
Pupils in Reception, Years 1 and 2 in state-funded schools in England are eligible for free school meals (UFSMs). The legal requirement on schools is to provide a lunchtime meal that meets the School Food Standards. As such all pupils in Reception and KS1 are routinely offered a hot meal option which can be ordered on-line through our hot meal provider ‘Dolce Ltd’.
Hot meals need to be ordered in advance and we have partnered with Live Kitchen to order meals and enable online secure payments to be made.
