Our lunches are prepared on site in our super facilities and served by Sarah and Tracey who work for Cygnet (they are friendly and always smiling!). Please click HERE to access a letter regarding ‘Universal Free School Meals’ for all KS1 children.
We are very proud of our lunchtimes – we try to make them fun and sociable for the children. The children sit at round, brightly coloured tables. They collect their meals from the serving hatch on lovely plates. They have water to drink on the tables, squash on special occasions! We play music if the children want it – but always on Fridays as a treat.

We encourage children to eat healthily at school, the cooked meals are nutritious and child friendly! We encourage children to eat 3 portions of fruit or vegetables a day at school – this is done by allowing children to eat fruit at break times and by encouraging parents to put fruit or vegetables in lunchboxes rather than crisps if they are not having hot dinners.
Most of our midday supervisors are teaching assistants. We encourage our MDSAs to play with the children or to start games off so that break and lunch times are happy times. The school council have a budget each year to buy playground games and toys.
The playground has markings for the children to play on and covered areas to keep out of the drizzle or sunshine. There are spaces to run, places to sit quietly and gardens that we use when the weather allows us with trees, play houses and a vegetable and fruit growing area. The field that the children play on has a pathway all around with seating for children to insect hunt, bird watch or to watch other children play.
When it snows we see this as an extra opportunity for play and often we have snow men and lady building competitions and supervised snow ball fights for those who wish to!
