Soon there will be a list of school meal choices for the week displayed in the school reception. This will be an easy way to check whether you have chosen school dinners or packed lunches for your children for the current week. We regret that changes cannot be made to choices once submitted.
We believe in the social value of eating together and as such all children share a mid-day meal together. Hot school meals are provided for Foundation Stage (Reception) & Key Stage 1 children (Years 1 & 2). These are freshly cooked on site by our own cook Mrs Hadrell, using local produce wherever possible. If you choose for your child not to have school meals they should bring a healthy packed lunch and drink to school (in a named container please). As we do not have cold storage facilities for lunch boxes, you may wish to include an ice pack in your child's lunchbox during warmer weather.
The school has the facility to provide a cooked lunch to those children entitiled to free school meals. Parents who have this entitlement should complete the free school meals application form and return it to Wiltshire Council. When Wiltshire Council confirm you are eligible, free school meals for your child will commence.
If you are unsure whether your child qualifies for free school meals please do not hesitate to contact the school office who will be happy to help with your queries and application.
As a school we encourage the children to eat healthy snacks at break time. There are many long term health benefits in encouraging this habit and we would very much value your support by providing your child with a fruit or vegetable snack.
