Dinner Time

Dinner is a really important time for us. Members of staff sit with their class groups, and in addition to eating skills our children are supported to develop their communication and social skills.

From September 2019, Parents and carers are welcome to provide a cold packed lunch for their child – this is new. For the safety and wellbeing of all children, packed lunches must not contain any nut products, sweets, chocolate or fizzy drinks and will be checked every morning.

For children who do not want to bring a packed lunch, there is a two week menu which stays in place for one whole term. To remain compliant we provide two red meat, one white meat, one fish and one cheese dish each week, plus suitable ‘non meat’ alternatives. In addition to the meat and ‘non meat’ options, Jacket potatoes with cheese or beans and cheese sandwiches are available every day.

We are always very proud when one of our children is brave enough to try a new food item. For children bringing a packed lunch or eating a sandwich or jacket potato, a free of charge ‘taster plate’ will be available every day and all children will be encouraged to try new food items. Toast will also be available for all children every day.

Fruit, yoghurt and jelly will be available for dessert every day. An additional pudding will be on offer on two days each week. Children and parents do not have to make a choice about pudding in advance and children can decide on the day. The dinner options from September to December will be as follows.
