Staple Hill School Kitchen
Hot school dinners are cooked on the school premises. All KS1 children are entitled to a free hot school dinner. KS 2 children will continue to be charged for their meals. Dinner money must be handed to your child’s class teacher in an envelope clearly marked with your child’s name, class, which days your child requires dinner and how much is included. It can also be posted into the postbox in the school foyer. Dinners cost £2.00 per day, £10.00 per week and can be purchased on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.If your child is vegetarian, (there is always a vegetarian option on the menu), or has special dietary needs, then please let the school know in writing. Water is provided by the kitchen for those children having hot school meals.
Facilities are provided for those children who wish to have a packed lunch. This should be brought in a suitable container, clearly labelled with the child’s name and class name. If a child forgets or loses their packed lunch, a hot lunch will be provided and the relevant amount charged to the parents.
Provisos for packed lunch:
As a “healthy school “ we encourage all of our children to eat balanced meals at all times of the day, therefore we encourage lunchboxes which include plenty of fruit or vegetables.
Drinks must be brought in as part of the packed lunch. They must:-
- Not be in glass containers or be cans of fizzy drink.
- The carton or flask must be contained within the sandwich box.
The container should have a strong top to prevent leakage but the child should be able to open it themselves.
