Lunch and Snack Times

Lunch Time  


Children should either be sent with a healthy packed lunch (no chocolate bars, sweets or fizzy drinks please) and bottle or cup of water or juice. Please ask a member of staff if you need any support with this. Alternatively, you may order hot dinners from the School Office. Hot meals are freshly prepared and cooked daily by AIP and delivered to the school at a cost of £2.10 per day.  In accordance with Government Guidelines, the food is healthy, cooked fresh and provides fruit and vegetables to help towards your child’s recommended 5-a-day portions. Menus are provided for the term ahead in advance and your choices and payments are forwarded to AIP through the setting the week prior to consumption.  The staff join the children at snack and lunchtime as we feel this is a great opportunity for socialising.  Orders for hot lunches must be placed by 9.00am Tuesday for the following week.

Snack Time

We provide a varied choice of healthy snacks which includes fruit, yoghurt, crackers, toast, for the children.  We also offer a variety of drinks such as fruit juice, milk and water, which the children can choose and pour themselves to promote independence. Drinking water is available at all times as well as the children’s own drinks which again, can be accessed at any time.  We use snack time as an opportunity to sit and talk with the children. We sing songs, find their names and find out what they have been doing at home.
