Lunch is from 12pm until 1.10pm.
The children eat in the hall with their friends, there are two sittings. Half the school go out to play first and then eat and vice versa.
All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are offered a free school meal – Kingswood Kitchens provides our hot meals, which are delivered daily. New government legislation means that all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free hot school meal. The caterer provides vegetarian meals and a packed lunch alternative. These need to be ordered by midnight the Wednesday the previous week. Alternatively, children may bring a packed lunch to school. See leaflet enclosed in pack for more details of meals provided by Kingswood Kitchens.
Children who bring packed lunches bring their own non-fizzy drink, or water is freely available. Parents may send cartons of drink to school. Flasks, cans or bottles are not acceptable because of the dangers of breakage or leakage. We also ask that parents do not put sweets or nuts into lunchboxes.
One significant change in the new School Food Standards is that from January 2015, lower fat milk or lactose reduced milk must be available for drinking at least once a day during school hours. Milk will be offered free of charge to children entitled to free school meals.
