Healthy Eating

School Lunches

Our school lunches are freshly cooked on site using much locally sourced produce.  They meet the high nutritional standards for school food.  

Each meal is priced at £2.00 and for parental ease, payments can be made using our on-line payment system.

Below is a link to the current menu which is available in many languages.

School Food Policy

We are currently consulting parents and children about our new school food policy.

We would like to know your comments on it.

Free School Meals

All children in years R, 1 and 2 are entitled to receive, and are encouraged to take, their Universal Free School Meal.  

Families in receipt of certain benefits may be entitled to receive Free School Meals if their children are in other classes.  

To find out if you qualify please use the link below to find out more information.

http://www3.hants.gov.uk/hc3s/freeschoolmeals.htm

Children entitled to Free School Meals qualify for the Pupil Premium grant which is extra money given to the school to help support children.  It is important that even if your child is in Key Stage 1 you apply for Free School Meals even though your child automatically receives the Universal Free School Meal.

 

Packed Lunches

If your child has a packed lunch we would encourage you to think about the Eatwell Plate when packing your child's lunch.  

A balanced and nutritious diet feeds the mind as well as the body.  Research proves that children who eat well perform better at school.  Too many sugary snacks can have a negative impact on children's ability to learn.

We politely remind you that as a healthy school, items like crisps, biscuit bars and cake are not permitted at break time, although they are allowed in moderation in lunch boxes.
