Our kitchen on the school site provides freshly cooked school meals which are nutritionally balanced. You can see the termly school menu via the link to Surrey's school meal website here. Children can also choose to have packed lunches if they wish, but these do need to be healthy and must not include nuts due to allergies or sweets and fizzy drinks as we are a Healthy School. The children all eat together in the main hall.
Payment for school meals must be paid in advance, using our on-line payment method Scopay. For ordering and administration purposes, we do ask that parents commit to either school meals or a packed lunch from home on a full half term basis. Children of parents who receive support payments such as Income Support or Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance may be entitled to free school meals and milk. Please contact the School Office for further information.
Water is always available for children to drink at lunchtime and break times. Children may bring a bottle of water to school to drink during lesson times. No juice or squash is allowed.
All children may purchase a carton of milk to drink during the morning. Please collect details from the school office and register for milk at CoolMilk
When children eat well, they do better at school. If you want to find out more information about food in schools or changes to government policy or even if you just want some great ideas for what to put in a healthy lunchbox please have a look at Children's Food Trust.
Depending on your circumstances, your child may qualify to have tasty, healthy school meals for free. It could save you more than £350 a year, and you won't need to worry about making packed lunches every day. Schools receive vital funding for their Free School Meals pupils and even if you decide not to have the meals, we still receive an allocation in our Pupil Premium funding. The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. Please talk to the school office if you think you may be eligible (and have a look here to see if you qualify).
