Food in School

We recognise the importance of a healthy diet and the significant connection between a healthy diet and a pupil’s ability to learn effectively in school. We will consider the role good food and drink can play across the whole school environment ensuring that awareness of healthy eating is promoted to all members of the school and wider community.

School Dinners

Our school meals are provided by Dolce, an external school meals company with an online ordering system. We encourge families to order meals in advance at home to ensure all children are served the meal of their choice from the menu of the day.

Free School Meals are provided when parents/carers meet certain eligibility criteria. We will ensure that each child who is eligible for free school meals receive a meal which is filling and nutritionally balanced. Research has shown that productivity and attainment can be improved when children eat balanced meals.

Please find links below to our school meal provider’s website and online ordering system:


  • Please inform school if your child has any allergies or nutritional requirements. Click on this Food Allergy Poster for further information.

  • In line with requirements, Dolce ensure that allergen information is available for parents when selecting their child’s meal on-line.

Lunchtime Supervision

Children are supervised by Midday Assistants during the lunch break. All school staff follow the school’s behaviour policy. It is expected that all children are respectful and courteous to all adults and children in school.

Morning Snacks

  • In the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1, the children are provided with a healthy snack as part of the ‘Fruit in Schools’ scheme.

  • In Key Stage 2, they can bring in a healthy snack of fresh fruit or vegetables each day (no crisps or chocolate bars please). Sweets should not be sent into school as part of their morning snack or packed lunch.
