Lunch / Dining
We have a school policy of no nuts or nut products in lunchboxes or snacks to ensure the safety of children with nut allergies. We encourage children to have healthy lunchboxes and bring fruit for their morning snack.
Parents can order hot meals for their children if they wish, which are cooked from fresh on site in our brand new kitchen called 'Hatch in the Hall'. Currently a hot meal costs £2.30 a day for KS2 children and is free for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, however all lunches have to be chosen from the menu and ordered online. Lunches are booked and paid for online through the School Money website. Please read the letter to parents below to find out more.
At Kingsthorpe Village Primary School our Head Cook makes every effort to identify ingredients that may cause allergic reactions for those with food allergies. The school also ensures that all our staff are aware of the serious nature of food allergies. However, please be advised that school menu items may contain allergens, or food may have come into contact with items containing allergens, and there is always a risk of contamination or cross-contamination. If your child has allergy, we would ask you to complete the disclaimer form and return to school.
Children from Reception through to Year 6 are entitled to receive free school meals if their parents or carers are in receipt of certain benefits. The school receive extra funding for children that qualify. Please contact the school office for further details where staff will be happy to assist you with the necessary arrangements. For those children not having a hot lunch, it will be necessary for parents to provide them with a packed lunch.
During morning break, children in Key Stage 1 receive a piece of fruit each day and older pupils may bring in a healthy snack from home.
We encourage children to bring water bottles into school. These are kept in the classroom, thus allowing pupils to drink water throughout the day. These bottles must only contain water.
During morning break, children can purchase small, healthy snacks from our kitchen pod. These items are available on a 'first-come, first-served' basis and are usually under 50p per item. There are different items available each day - please check the display board on the kitchen pod to see what is coming up.
