Parent Information > School Lunches

You can choose whether your child has a cooked school meal at lunchtime or a packed lunch. Our school meals are cooked on the premises, have two courses and are designed to be both nutritious and appealing.

As of September 2014, all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 receive Universal Free School Meals (UFSM) provided by the Government (however, if you think you may be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), please contact the school office as it is still very important to register your child).

For children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 (Key Stage 2) meals cost £2.30 each, unless you are in receipt of Free School Meals - please speak to the office if you think you may be eligible for these.

To order meals for children in Key Stage 2, please send the money in an envelope, marked with your child's name, at the beginning of the week. You may also pay weekly or termly by cheque made out to Suffolk County Council.

If your child brings a packed lunch to school, please ensure that it is in a lunch box with his or her name on the outside. We provide drinking water in the dining room, but if your child brings a drink, please ensure that it is not fizzy or in a glass container.

Our children are cared for at lunchtime by a team of Midday Assistants, and senior teachers are also in regular attendance.

Fresh water is available throughout the day from the school drinking fountains. Children are encouraged to bring a bottle (clear plastic) of water for drinking through the day, and a piece of fruit or vegetable for their morning break time snack. Sweets and biscuits should not be sent in for snack times.  

We ask parents not to send in any food to share with their child’s friends on the occasion of their birthdays.
