School Meal Information
What food options are available to my child whilst in school ?
We promote healthy eating within our school and our experienced kitchen staff prepare and serve freshly cooked meals on the school premises. The price of school meals are £2.10 per day (£10.50 per week), effective from 7th September 2011. If you believe you may be entitled to free school meals, information regarding how to apply can be obtained from the school office. All applications should be directed to the following address:
Level 4, Civic Centre

For parents who wish to provide their child with sandwiches from home, we ask that a healthy meal be provided which does not include crisps, sweets or fizzy drinks. We encourage parents to provide a lunch box which includes fresh fruit and vegetables and helps to contribute to the recommended daily intake of 5 fresh fruit and vegetable items per day.
Given that some children have threatening allergies to foods containing nuts (including, peanut butter, Nutella etc.) it is very important to exclude any nuts or products containing nuts from your child’s lunch box.
How can I be confident my child is eating & drinking while at school?
At Littlemoor meals are usually a communal experience and we promote that children sit and eat their meals at a dining table. We have separate sittings for lunch so that each class/year group has sufficient time to enjoy their meal. Fresh drinking water is also available to all pupils and children are encouraged to bring a water bottle containing plain water every day.
For pupils in Nursery through to Year 2, throughout the course of the school day, we provide a small carton (189ml) of fresh pasteurized milk on a daily basis and a piece of fruit.
