Collection of Dinner Money is now all done through ParentPay. Parents can either use a barcode, which they can add money to their account at any PayPoint tereminal or parents have an opportunity to register to add money with a debit card, on line.
Throughout the year there are themed dinners e.g. Chinese theme during the Chinese New Year and at Christmas the children all sit together and are served by the school staff, who on this occasion, serve the children their dinners at their table.
Facilities are provided for children to eat their own packed lunch. Food should be brought in a lunchbox and any drink in a secure, sealed container. Tin cans, glass bottles, fizzy and hot drinks are not allowed for reasons of safety. Please ensure that you provide the necessary cutlery, if your child needs it to eat their dinner.
Healthy Eating is well promoted in school both at playtimes and lunchtimes. Parents are asked to support our focus on no sweets, crisps, chocolate etc. At every lunchtime, pupils are invited to buy fruit from our fruit tuck shop, for 25p or, bring their own fruit in from home.
Children are encouraged to bring water to school to drink throughout the day and there are water fountains in both the Foundation Phase and Key Stage 2 to refill their bottles.
