School Lunch, Breakfast Club and After School Childcare Club
We offer children the opportunity to have either hot meals which are cooked on the premises by Tower Hamlets catering staff or to bring their own packed lunch. Hot meals provided comply with national requirements for healthy eating in school.
In Years One to Six (Key Stage 1 and 2) meal supervisors supervise children during their lunchtime in the middle hall. Teachers who are having hot meals sit alongside the children at the tables. Meal supervisors supervise children in the playground and we always ensure that there are qualified first-aiders on duty.
In Early Years children eat lunch with the staff who teach them and Nursery and Reception eat together in the middle hall before the older classes.
All primary meals (not Nursery) in Tower Hamlets are now offered to pupils free of charge. This has been possible by extending the Government’s Universal Infant Free School Meal scheme to Key Stage Two pupils too through the Mayor's Meals Scheme.
Our menus are on a three weekly cycle and are revised every six months after the autumn half term break and the start of the Summer term. All our menus meet or exceed the Government's food based guidelines launched at the beginning of 2015.
If a child has a special dietary requirements we make every effort to accommodate this.
Please note that occasionally our cook may have to make menu changes at short notice (for instance if there is a problem with food deliveries) but we aim to keep this to a minimum.
In conjunction with Tower Hamlets Healthy Schools Team and a dietician we have developed a Healthy Packed Lunch policy in order to ensure that all packed lunches brought from home and consumed in school (or on school trips) provide the pupils with healthy, safe and nutritious food.
The content of our packed lunch policy reflects the requirement of schools to meet minimum food and nutrition standards for school meals. Packed lunches should provide a nutritious, balanced diet to support the child’s learning and development.
