Sacred Heart is a nut free school.
Lunchtime begins at 12.00 noon for Key Stage 1 and 12.15 pm for Key Stage 2.
Key Stage 1 children eat at the first sitting, followed by Key Stage 2.
Meals are prepared on the premises by Aspens who offer a well-balanced and nutritious menu.
The menu is varied and each day the children have a choice between two hot meals (one is always vegetarian), jacket potato, hot pasta with tomato sauce or a packed lunch option, followed by dessert.
If your child has special dietary requirements, our Cook will almost certainly be able to cater for them.
School meals are paid for in advance on a weekly, half-termly or termly basis. Payment should be sent via School Gateway, an electronic payment system (see School Office for details). If your child is absent from school the outstanding balance is adjusted on the day.
Universal Free School Meals
For children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2
The Government has introduced a scheme for Free School Meals for all children attending the first three years at school.
This initiative is seen as a major scheme to improve eating habits in the young, with evidence showing a significant link between a good diet and a positive impact on performance at school. Pilot projects which tested universal free school meals showed that they give your child a real appetite for learning and help them to achieve their full potential. Should you choose to take up this entitlement, your child will receive a hot, freshly prepared nutritious meal each school day, prepared by skilled HCL staff.
Year 3 and Older
Your child can get a free school meal if you receive any of the following:
Your child may choose to bring their own lunch to school. We would ask that lunches are healthy and you do not include sweets, fizzy drinks or nuts/nut-based products to safeguard our children with food allergies.
