Lunch time Arrangements.

 

  • All children eat their lunch in the school hall.
  • Hot school meals are pre-ordered by parents. In KS1, pupil’s order lists are provided so that pupils can be given the relevant meal card (Menu 1-5) and sticker for desert (Yellow=yoghurt, green= fruit, no sticker = desert). It is important that every pupil gets the right meal and desert each day.
  • KS2 pupils check the lists themselves and inform the kitchen staff of their order
  • Staff may have a hot school meal but these must be ordered and paid for in advance.
  • At the start of lunch, teaching staff will supervise the washing of hands and say grace. The lunchtime supervisor will then take over. Some children from Y6 may help the supervisors with the younger children in YR and Y1
  • At the end of lunch, midday supervisors supervise the children’s return into class and wait with the children in the classrooms until the class teachers’ return.
  • Pupils are able to use the toilet throughout the lunchtime period providing they have asked a member of staff and have been given a ‘peg’.
