As a school we provide a number of healthy food choices and delicious options for children to choose from. All our food is freshly cooked and prepared by our onsite kitchen staff.
We have system that allows our children to choose what they would like to eat at lunchtime, giving them the opportunity to pre-order their preferred meal choice.
At morning registration the children will be told what the menu options are for that day. This will typically be a meat option, a vegetarian/fish choice or a Jacket potato/Macaroni cheese (Friday).
Children will then be able to tell their teacher what their preferred option is, this will be colour coded and at lunchtime children will be given the relevant colour wristband to wear as they enter the school hall for lunch.
Blue bands will be provided to children with special dietary requirements. If your child has a food intolerance or dietary requirement that we are unaware of please inform the school office.
Please see the attached menu for our delicious meals.
A school meal costs just £2.50 per day and can be paid through our online payment system - Arbor Parent Portal
As we are a healthy Academy, children who want a snack to eat at playtime can bring fresh fruit or vegetables or cheese, crisps are not allowed at playtime but can be brought in for packed lunch.
Fresh fruit is now being offered free to Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 children through the government funded scheme.
Chocolate bars should not be brought (even as part of a packed lunch), as they do not fit with our healthy eating programme.
All children need to bring to school a refillable bottle of water, with their name clearly on it, to drink in the classroom. Please note that only water can be drunk in the classrooms as fruit juices can be very sticky if spilt.
