The Trust believes that a child’s nutritional needs are best met through the provision of school lunches. We believe that a well-balanced hot meal for children in the middle of the day is the best option for our pupils. It is therefore our policy that all pupils will have a school dinner and would only in exceptional circumstances allow pupils to bring a packed lunch, on the Headteacher discretion. The school food plan identified that
“many parents mistakenly believe that a packed lunch is the healthiest option. In fact, it is far easier to get the necessary nutrients into a cooked meal – even one of mediocre quality. Only 1% of packed lunches meet the nutritional standards that currently apply to school food.”
