Pupils may either bring a packed lunch to school or have a school lunch provided by Caterlink at a cost of £2.10 per day. Cash or cheque payment (cheques payable to Caterlink) can be sent to the school in a sealed named envelope.
From September 14, all infant children are entitled to a free school meal. Please ask at the office if you require any further information.
We are a Healthy School and we encourage pupils to eat healthily. If you are stuck for ideas for lunch boxes or would like further information about healthy foods, please try the links below;
As you know I recently canvassed your opinion on whether a breakfast club would be a viable option at Shipbourne School, and I would like to thank all of you who responded in such a positive way.
We are pleased the initial trail has gone well and would like to continue this service for you. The gate in Back Lane will open at 8am for ten minutes to allow the children to enter the site (after this time children will enter via the school office). The club will run until 8.45, and will consist of a good breakfast with a choice of food and drink as well as activities inside and out. At 8.45 the children will go out on the playground under the supervision of staff until entering school as normal when the bell goes. If there is enough take up of this new facility, we will continue it in September.
In order to purchase food, it is good to have an idea of numbers attending the club. Therefore we would ask that you inform us by each preceding Thursday by emailing the office or downloading and completing the breakfast form available on the website, whether you want to take up a place for any days in the following week, and provide payment for those days in an envelope with your child’s name on it.
