After break time all children are offered a snack from a selection of fruit and vegetables in their classroom. The food is provided by the School and comes from an approved West Sussex supplier.
At lunch time children may either bring in a packed lunch or have a hot school meal. There is no segregation in the seating arrangements and pupils with either choice of meal sit together. Children are able to sit with a lunch time partner of their choice on tables of mixed ages.
School meals are provided by Chartwells.
From September 2014 all KS1 children are entitled to a free school meal. These do not need to be booked in advance. The meals are prepared off site, then delivered to school and steam cooked - a similar process to using a pressure cooker. This method is designed to ensure the food retains essential nutrients. There are no artificial additives or preservatives in the meals and special dietary requirements can be catered for. Water and milk are offered daily as drinks with the school meals.
For KS2 children meals are ordered either by phone or online using the Chartwells link below.
These should be brought into School in a labelled lunch box. As a School with 'Healthy Schools Status' we expect and encourage children's lunch boxes to reflect healthy choices. Therefore fizzy drinks, sweets and chocolate bars are not to be included.
