School meals and break time snacks

At lunchtime, children have the choice of either eating a hot school meal or bringing in a packed lunch.


Hot School Meals


The school offers hot school meals which may be ordered on a weekly basis. The food is prepared and delivered by Poole Grammar School.


All Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children are entitled to Universal Infant Free School Meals under a Government initiative.


Children in Years 3 to 6 may pay for hot school meals on a weekly basis.


Children in Years 3 to 6 who are entitled to Free School Meals may order hot school meals on a weekly basis.


The cost to pay for meals for a week is £11.75 and all payments should be made directly to the school office.


  • Menu Selection: The menu will rotate over a four week period. Current details can be seen on the Hot School Meal Order Form link below.

  • Food Allergies: If your child has a food allergy, please contact the office to request a ‘Special Dietary & Allergy Form’.  For allergens see below.

  • Educational Trips: If your child is involved in an educational trip and will be away from school during the lunch break than a packed lunch alternative will be available.


Packed Lunches


Children bringing in a packed lunch must place them on the trolley located in their classroom ready for their lunch time. Please send packed lunches in an appropriate container, clearly labelled with your child’s name and class.


For Health and Safety reasons we request that you do not send your child in with:

  • glass bottles

  • any form of nuts or sesame seeds (due to some children being allergic to them).


We are a Healthy School so please do not include:

  • chocolate items other than biscuits

  • sweets

  • fizzy drinks


Break time snacks


All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are provided with a piece of fruit or vegetable for their daily snack.


Children in Years 3 to 6 may bring in a piece of fruit or vegetable from home for their daily break time snack.
