Lunch time at school will be a new experience for your child so here is some information to help put your child and your mind at rest.
What will happen at lunch time
2. Next they will pick up their plate, knife, fork and spoon and wait in the line.
3. Then they will go into the kitchen hatch and choose their lunch. The dinner ladies serving the food will tell your child what their choices are.
4. After that your child will walk out of the kitchen hatch and be guided to sit down at a table to eat their lunch.
5. Finally once they have finished their lunch they will be helped to put their plates and cutlery away.
How to help your child prepare for lunch time
All children are entitled to a free school meal but if you would prefer your child to have a packed lunch it must be a healthy packed lunch with no chocolate, no nuts (this includes chocolate spread) and no fizzy drinks. We are a NUT FREE school. The school will need a weeks’ notice if you wish them to change their lunch preference.
If your child has diagnosed allergies and cannot eat certain foods the kitchen manager will need to see a doctor’s note proving these allergies to enable her to cater for their allergies.
LUCNHTIME MAYBE SUBJECT TO CHANGE DEPENDING ON THE CURRENT GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES AT THE TIME. WE WILL INFORM YOU OF ANY CHANGES AS SOON AS WE KNOW.
