School Meals & Healthy Eating
We believe that eating meals together is an important part of a child’s social development.
At school, we offer breakfast, a hot school lunch and tea. All meals are served ‘family style’. An adult sits at the table with the children, and they are encouraged to help each other; serving food and drinks.
Talking is encouraged to develop social interactions and turn taking.
Breakfast is cereal with milk, toast and spread and water or milk to drink.
A hot school meal is provided at a cost of £2.20 per day and consists of a main meal and dessert. Fresh fruit, yoghurt, salad and bread are all served daily.
A light tea is served for those children who stay until 5.00pm.
All hot meals are provided by our neighbouring school through the Heart Academy.
