Children may have a school lunch or bring a packed lunch from home.
All Infant pupils are eligible for a free school meal daily (UIFSM). School meals are cooked in our own kitchen. Menus are sent home to parents/carers. Younger pupils will be provided with a booking form to make their choices for the term, including our vegetarian option. If your child has any special dietary requirements these can be discussed with the school caterer from Derbyshire County Council. As part of our Food Policy there is a form to complete with Derbyshire County Council, to ensure that staff are aware of your child’s needs. Please ask at the office or see information below. Junior meals may be paid for via parent pay.
As some pupils have severe allergies to nuts we do not allow any nut products in school e.g. Nutella, Praline, cereal bars with nuts etc.
If you choose to send a packed lunch for your child, please ensure that it is in a suitable container and provides a healthy balanced meal. As part of our healthy eating programme we discourage sweets, chocolate and fizzy drinks in lunch boxes. Drinks should be in an unbreakable container; glass bottles or cans should not be brought into school.
Children are supervised by a team of lunchtime supervisors during the lunch break and we expect mutual respect and good manners from children towards all lunchtime staff as they play a vital role within our school.
