We have a team of lunchtime supervisors who support and care for your child every day during the lunchtime period. We aim to make lunchtimes both happy and safe and therefore it is essential that all children follow the guidance and instructions of staff.
Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are provided with a free fruit or vegetable every day as part of the “five a day” initiative and they are entitled to a free school lunch.
At Quinton Primary School, we are a healthy school and therefore we invite children to bring healthy choices for mid morning break and lunch. We value any effort parents/carers can make to reduce sweets, chocolate bars and fizzy drinks.
Children are encouraged to drink fresh water throughout the day in light of recent findings linking hydration to effective learning power.
We believe that meal times are a special and important part of school life. Meals are prepared daily in our school kitchen by Warwickshire County Caterers. Children choose which meal they would like when they register in the morning. The cost of school meals is currently £2.15 per day. Please see the meal menu link below.
Lunch money should be brought in in a clearly marked envelope each Monday, stating the amount enclosed and the days your child wishes to have school lunch. However, a child can opt in or out on a daily basis.
Teachers cannot take responsibility for money that is not in a named envelope.
Pupils are allowed to bring sandwiches any day of the week. It is essential that the following are considered to ensure lunchtimes run smoothly:
1. Sandwiches must be brought into school in a named lunchbox (please include an ice pack to keep the food fresh).
2. Children must bring leak proof and shatterproof flasks or plastic bottles for drinks. No glass containers are allowed.
3. It is a good idea to have a water bottle in the lunch box and one for use in the classroom.
Free School Meals
You may be entitled to free school meals. Children of parents/carers on Income Support or Job Seekers’ Allowance may be able to claim free school meals. Application forms can be obtained from the school office.
