At St John’s, we believe that the best option for children at lunchtime is to have a hot school dinner. We expect that parents and carers of children in Key Stage 1 will take up the option of the Universal Infant Free School Meal as we believe the school dinner option is much better for the children’s learning and health. Children in Key Stage 2 can purchase a school dinner each day for £2.30 (unless they are entitled to Free School Meals in which case they are free of charge).
We recognise the evidence that states:
- Children are better prepared for learning if they eat well
- Eating hot dinners is an important social occasion and the children learn vital social skills
Please contact our School Office if you have any questions about School Dinners.
