Parents can choose either to send in a packed lunch or to have a lunch provided by Caterlink. All infant children are entitled to a universal free school meal. Meals cost £2.34 and dinners can be purchased through Parent Pay. At present due to the COVID situation hot school dinners are not being offered – children instead can have a packed lunch provided by Caterlink.
Lunchtime is considered to be part of the school day and is treated as a social occasion. Children eat under supervision and are encouraged to show good manners and eating habits. Children are encouraged to bring a healthy lunch box. Please avoid fizzy drinks, chocolate bars or sweets or items containing nuts. Children can bring in crisps, chocolate covered biscuits or wafers.
Children at Grangefield are encouraged to eat healthy alternatives. The school takes part in the Healthy Eating Programme which involves every EYFS and KS1 child being offered a piece of fruit or vegetable to eat at their morning break. Children are also provided with a water bottle to encourage them to drink throughout the day.
