School Meals

School Dinners – Meals are cooked on the premises. Each day a choice of meal is provided which includes a vegetarian option. The meals are provided in accordance with the DfE guidelines on nutrition. The children are asked to bring their money in each day that they wish to purchase a meal.

Sandwiches – Children are welcome to bring in their own sandwiches. Please ensure that they use a non-breakable, clearly labelled sandwich box or lunch bag. We try to encourage children to bring a lunch that is nutritionally balanced. It should not include sweets or fizzy drinks.

Free School Meals – If you are receiving Income Support or Income Based Jobseekers Allowance, your child may be entitled to a Free School Meal. Please contact the school office for further details. 

Snacks – At Emmbrook Junior School we encourage our children to eat healthily. Through consultation with a number of parents the following healthy snacks are permitted in school:

  • Portion of fresh fruit or veg
  • Plain bread sticks
  • Plain rice cakes
  • Chunks of cheese
  • Dried fruit with no additional coating

Children should not bring in nuts, seeds, high sugar or high fat items such as chocolate, crisps, cakes etc.
