We want children to come together at lunchtimes, just as we would at home as a family. This allows children to develop a variety of skills, whilst ensuring nutritional and balanced meals each day. We want children to be a part of the process of preparing lunches, as well as helping each other to clean lunch away.
We also encourage children to try new foods, including unfamiliar foods.
We expect all children to eat a healthy meal, including fruits, vegetables and salad. We also expect that lunchtimes are a safe, courteous part of school to grow and develop pupil understanding of:
- Play – using equipment, working well with others, turn taking.
- Eating – using cutlery, healthy meals, sharing.
