A hot, two course meal is available. This is provided by a contract caterer and cooked in a large local primary school. Money should be paid weekly in advance, on Monday morning or the first day after a school holiday. Weekly cash payments should be placed in an envelope clearly marked `Dinner Money’ with the child’s name, class and amount on the front. Unfortunately Principals no longer accept cheques. Dinners cannot be ordered without prior payment.
From September all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to free school meals. Older children may still be entitled to a free school meal. Contact the School Office for more information.
Children may bring their own healthy lunch. Glass containers or canned drinks are not permitted for safety reasons. Chocolate, sweets and crisps are discouraged in line with the governments guidelines on healthy eating. Any wrappers or remains must be taken home at the end of the school day.
Lunch boxes should be placed in the designated lunch box area at the start of each day. Lunch boxes should be collected again at the end of the day.
Bredgar School supports the Healthy Schools Initiative and we encourage parents to provide a plain biscuit/piece of fruit for a snack at morning break. Children in the Bears and Butterfly class are provided with fruit at morning break as part of the Free Fruit scheme.
School lunches are taken in the Village Hall, served by a Dining Room assistant and supervised by a class teacher. Packed lunches are eaten in the classrooms supervised by the lunchtime supervisors. There are three lunchtime supervisors on duty. The midday meal is considered to be a part of the children’s social training and staff encourage good table manners and promote conversational skills.
