Free School Meals

As part of the government’s Universal Free School Meals (UFSM) scheme, all Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children in state-funded schools in England are entitled to free school meals.

There are two sittings, with school meals eaten in the school hall.

Packed Lunches

Other children bring a packed lunch to school. Currently children eating a packed lunch do so alongside children having a cooked school meal.

Parents are asked to send packed lunches in a suitable sandwich box or container.

For health & safety reasons hot food (such as soup in a flask), glass bottles, ring pull cans and fizzy drinks are not allowed. Sweets and other confectionary bars should not be included in the packed lunch.
