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.

School Information

(Updated 22 October 2021)

Dear Parents & Carers,

We would like to thank all the parents and carers who arranged for PCR tests and have shared the information with us.

Only children with symptoms or positive PCR test results are required to isolate, and we do not require any child without symptoms to have a PCR test in order to come to school. If you are concerned then we encourage you to arrange a test but it is not a requirement. If you feel unwell and have symptoms you should book a PCR test through Gov.uk
