We do have a kitchen on site which provides hot meals. We run the kitchen ourselves without the restraints imposed by the contractors chosen by the local authority. We will therefore be able to offer menus that are nutritional, value for money and designed to be as child friendly as possible. The children are encouraged to eat as much of their meal as they can, and to even try something new, but they are not forced to eat what they don’t like. All Infant aged pupils will be eligible for a Free School Meal with effect from September 2014.
Packed lunches should be brought in to school in a clearly named lunch box. The children will be able to throw away any finished drinks cartons, but will be expected to bring home any unfinished food and rubbish in their lunch boxes. This is so you are able to monitor what your child is or is not eating. We ask that if you choose to provide a packed lunch for your child that you please make it a balanced meal. Clewer Green has packed lunch box guidelines. As with the hot meal provision the children will be supervised whilst eating their lunch.
We are fortunate to be a part of the Government scheme that provides fruit to all children in the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 free. However, the Government scheme does not include Key Stage 2 children and we therefore encourage children in Years 3 & 4 to bring in a healthy snack, preferably some fruit or vegetables, for morning break. Crisps and chocolate bars will not be permitted and will be placed back in to lunch boxes or sent home.
We would be grateful if you could encourage your child to use a knife and fork appropriately if you are going to choose the occasional or a regular hot meal. Here are some samples of healthy packed lunches.
