Your child can stay in school at lunchtime and have a cooked school meal or a packed lunch provided by you. Alternatively, you may choose for your child to go home at lunchtime.
Children who have school lunches are given a choice of three main cooked meals, one of which is a vegetarian option. A term’s lunch money can be sent in, in advance. Alternatively, you must send in the week’s lunch money on Monday morning. This should be the exact amount and should arrive in a sealed container bearing your child’s name and class. Your child may be eligible for a free school meal. Please speak to the office if you think this is the case or download the form here.
From September 2014 our school meals will be provided by Chartwells Feeding Futures with London Borough of Hounslow. They try to offer something for everyone; with a mixture of old favourites and new dishes. The menu conforms to all the government regulations regarding nutritional content so you can be sure your child will be eating a balanced meal whenever they have a school lunch. If you would like more information about nutrition in school food why not visit www.schoolfoodtrust.org.uk The menus for the term is available below.
Packed lunches should be sent in a named container and, of course, the meal should be nutritionally-balanced and of an appropriate quantity. We educate the children to adopt healthy lifestyles so please do not include sweets and fizzy drinks and, for safety reasons, glass bottles or cans. Once you have decided on the provision you want for your child at lunchtime, we would ask you to maintain that option for half a term. Any changes should be notified in writing to the office and made on the first day after a holiday.
