Lunch break lasts for one hour and children have the choice of ordering a school meal or bringing a packed lunch.  


All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are eligible for universal free school meals, and older children may be eligible if their parents receive certain benefits.  Years 3-6 will receive free school meals for the current academic year (23/24) which are funded by the Mayor of London. If you think you may be eligible for free school meals, please contact the school office. 


Packed lunches should be healthy and balanced meals.  Children should not have chocolate, sweets, milkshakes or fizzy drinks in their lunchboxes and we also ask that parents avoid giving nuts, including peanut butter and Nutella.  This is due to the risk to those children with severe allergies.
