From September 2023 our cooked meals will be provided by Warminster School. Children can choose from the meal option of the day or a vegetarian option.
Children can opt in and out of school lunches, having a school meal as many or as few days a week as they wish. All we ask is that school meals are booked and for Junior children, paid for, at least 4 days in advance via the School Gateway. Infant children are entitled to free school meals (Reception to Year 2 inclusive). School meals are currently £2.50 per day.
If your child, in any school year, is entitled to free school meals because you are in receipt of qualifying benefits, please complete a free school meals application form as this will enable the school to receive Pupil Premium funding for your child which will benefit their education.
A 3 week Menu is produced each term and sent out via the school Newsletter. The Menu rotates weekly during the term.
Our school menu meets the Government’s Nutritional Standards for Schools and we offer:
- hot meals using fresh local fruit and vegetables 5 days a week
- chilled drinking water available to all children throughout the day
- meals lower in salt and fat
- promotion of healthy eating incorporated into the curriculum
As well as sandwiches or bread rolls, packed lunches should include some fresh fruit or vegetables i.e. pieces of fruit, cherry tomatoes, raw carrot, cucumber sticks. Sweets and chocolate are discouraged. Children may bring low sugar squash or fruit juice to drink. Fresh water is always provided on the tables. No glass bottles are allowed.
We take part in the Free Fruit & Veg Scheme, which means all infant children have a piece of fruit or veg (such as carrots or baby tomatoes) every day at break time.
