Chartwells use ParentPay online ordering system for school meals. MEALS MUST BE ORDERED NO LATER THAN MIDNIGHT ON THURSDAY FOR THE FOLLOWING WEEK. If you require an activation code letter please contact the school office.

If you think your child is entitled to a free meal, please visit the Citizens Portal to apply. Children in Foundation 2 and Years 1 and 2 are now offered free meals under the Universal Free School Meals initiative. However, if you receive qualifying benefits YOU SHOULD STILL APPLY FOR FREE SCHOOL MEALS regardless of your child’s year group.

Children may also bring their own healthy packed lunch if they wish.  It should include a piece of fruit and a healthy snack bar and not contain sweets.  Packed lunches must be nut free; this includes peanut butter and chocolate spreads which contain hazelnuts. Fast food such as McDonalds in lunch boxes is not permitted.

For healthy lunchbox ideas, please visit the Change4Life website.

We have an excellent Midday Team who help children during lunchtimes and supervise their play.

 

Snacks and Drinks at School

Foundation 1 and 2 children will be provided with fruit and milk. Year 1 and 2 children will be provided with fresh fruit each day for their morning break.

Once in Key Stage 2, free fruit is not provided but children should bring a healthy snack for morning break. We do not allow children to have sweets, chocolates or crisps for snack.

All children in Years 1-6 must bring their own named bottle of water each day. This bottle may stay in school for the term and children can rinse and refill the bottle in school. Squashes, juices and sports drinks are not allowed.
