All meals - Meal patterns for hot school dinner or packed lunch is set by the office and you do not need to book anything yourself on Arbor. Once a pattern is set it will roll onwards every week. You only need to communicate with the office if you wish to amend your child's meal pattern. Please note if you wish to amend your child's meal pattern this needs to be communicated by Friday lunchtime to be actioned in time, for the following week onwards. If a cost applies for meals you must ensure you keep your child's meal account topped up appropriately in Arbor.

Packed Lunches from Home

You may choose to provide your child with a packed lunch.

As a school, we want to promote healthy eating choices for all our children and we have produced this guidance with the aim of helping and supporting parents and children to make those healthy choices when bringing a packed lunch from home. It was written with help from our Pupil Parliament. 

We would ask that all families ensure they follow the guidance given but particularly in ensuring packed lunches do not contain nuts or sweets and that children only bring one treat item. Our lunchtime staff will let you know, via a note in the lunch box, if there are any foods that shouldn’t be there.

Sustainability at Lunchtime

We have implemented ‘Plastic-Free Fridays’ which are designed to promote the reduction in the amount of single-use plastic used in packed lunches. We have a team of litter-pickers who monitor the school grounds at lunchtime, ensuring that no litter is left behind.
