At Thomas Eaton
Meals are prepared and cooked on the premises by our own staff.
There is a choice of 4 main dishes each day that the childen can select. A fortnightly menu is produced for the childen to pre-order – this saves on wastage. The produce is locally sourced wherever possible, and we use our own produce from our allotment.
Cost = £2.25 per day
Payment in cash or cheque should be made on Mondays in a named purse or envelope.
Please say which days the child is staying, for a cooked meal.
It is also possible for parents to pay for longer periods, in advance if they so wish.
Whilst provision can be made for children to eat packed lunch we do value the school meal as a part of their education, and would urge parents to choose the cooked meal for their children.
All our pupils are encouraged to drink water throughout the day, keeping them hydrated. Each child is encouraged to bring a named drinks bottle for this purpose.
Every Key Stage 1 child is provided with an item of fruit at morning break and Key Stage 2 children may purchase an item from the Fruit Tuck shop, or bring their own. No other snacks are permitted.
We pride ourselves that we have achieved ‘Healthy School’ status.
Being healthy, safe, cared for, having a voice and influence are fundamental prerequisites to being ‘ready to learn’ and achieving true potential – at any stage in our lives. Our aim is to help children and young people to grow healthily, safely and responsibly and to become active citizens who do their bit for society and for the environment.
