We have a coloured banding system for our school meals so that we ensure children get the meal of their choice.
Children are shown pictorial menus at registration and choose which colour meal option they would like that day. They will be issued with a coloured band which they will wear on their wrist until lunchtime. When they go for their lunch they will then hand over their band to the kitchen staff and receive the meal of their choice.
In order for the cook to prepare the required meals the class numbers must be submitted to the kitchen promptly. It is important children arrive on time so they can choose their option. Any children coming in late after that time will be issued with a white band and the cook will prepare more of one option for those children.
For those of you who have children starting school for the first time in September, here are next year's menus. You may wish to look ahead with your child over the summer at pictures of the meals they can choose next year. There is also a second document showing what's on the menu and on which dates.
We hope your children will enjoy tucking in to these nutritious, healthy meals.
If your child is having a packed lunch, then please read our guide to a healthy packed lunch, which we've produced in accordance with government guidelines.
