We do have a kitchen on site which provides hot meals. We run the kitchen ourselves without the constraints 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 , whether hot meal or packed lunch, as they can and to try something new but 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 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 in line with the Clewer Green Healthy Lunchbox Guidelines. Here are some samples of healthy packed lunches.
Lunch break starts at 11.45am with the youngest children eating first.
Lunches cost £2.30 for children in Year 3 & 4. Foundation, Year 1 & 2 are entitled to free meals.
Lunches do not have to be booked for every day of the week. Online payments and choices may be made up to midnight the day before however you can book a week or up to a half term's worth of lunches at one time if you wish. Please remember to let the office know if you have booked a meal but no longer need it e.g. if your child is off sick.
All meals are served with seasonal vegetables or a mixed salad and bread. Fresh fruit/cheese and biscuits or yoghurt is available as an alternative to the main dessert. There is no meal choice at the counter, your child will be given the meal that you have ordered for them. 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.
As an alternative to the main meal a Jacket potato, along with a choice of topping and salad or vegetables, is available daily.
Juice is not included with any lunch (including free school meals) but it is available at an additional cost of 40p per carton for all year groups. Juice should be ordered and paid for online when booking meal. Milk is provided for children in Foundation Stage, Year 1, Year 2 and those on Free School meals. Water is also freely available for all pupils.
Please remember to cancel any booked lunches if your child is off sick. We will be unable to credit your lunch account if the meal is not cancelled.
