  • a vegetable, usually two, not including potatoes
  • a 5-choice salad bar
  • bread
  • water to drink
  • fresh fruit
  • yoghurt and other desserts

How are the lunch times supervised?

There are always at least two adults in the hall supervising the children as they eat, watching over packed-lunch children as well as school dinners.

Children are encouraged to eat all of their lunch; however, if they really don’t want to, they will be encouraged to eat as much as they can. If a child is reluctant to eat over a period of days, their parents will be informed. Children are not allowed to start with their pudding and skip the main course.
