School meals

People who suffer from nut allergies can develop a severe, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction.

If someone has a nut allergy it is not just eating nuts that can cause a severe reaction, just being touched on the skin or smelling the breath of someone who has had nuts or a product containing nuts can trigger anaphylactic shock (which can cause breathing and swallowing difficulties).

First aid staff in the school are trained to use the Epi-pens (an injection of adrenalin) which is required immediately if this happens.

We cannot have nuts in school in any form. So please can we ask that you have no nut products in the lunch boxes or brought into the school as treats.

For example:

  • Peanut butter sandwiches
  • Chocolate spreads
  • Cereal bars
  • Some granola bars
  • Cakes that contain nuts
  • Biscuits / Cookies that contain nuts
  • Peanut butter cakes
  • Some Asian food, including satay
  • Sauces that contain nuts

This list is not exhaustive, so please check the packaging of products closely.

We appreciate that this is an additional thing to check and we know that you recognise the importance of it. We do have to insist we are a nut free school. Thank you for your support.

School Meals

The primary school menus are planned over three weeks and you can use the colour coded diary to work out which week we are on.

Children may take a cooked or a packed meal at lunch times. Meals are cooked on the premises. There is a choice of a cooked main dish as well as salad and for dessert a pudding or fresh fruit is offered. There is always a vegetarian option.

Children who bring packed lunches eat with the other children in the hall. As part of our healthy school policy we encourage all the children to eat a healthy and balanced diet and hope that this is reflected in the packed lunches that are brought to school.

Please visit the Suffolk Menu’s website for more information.

N.B From 1st April 2023 there will be a price increase to school meals. The new price per school meal will be £2.55.

All children that are in Key Stage 1 (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) are entitled to a free school meal as a result of the Government Universal Free School Meals Programme (UIFSM).
