Healthy School Meals
We are proud to work in partnership with parents to encourage the children to understand what healthy eating means and how it can be achieved through school meals. We ask that parents support the school to help the children establish good eating habits, by providing a ‘balanced’ and ‘nutritious’ packed lunch. To promote healthy eating, the children are taught about a balanced diet and why it’s important that we locally source ingredients, during PSHE. Children may bring another drink to have with their lunch, which is additional to their water bottle. They are not allowed to bring fizzy drinks or sweets to school.
When your child starts at Sedley’s Primary, we will ask you to complete a medical form to identify any medical needs, allergies, intolerances, or dietary requirements your child may have, to ensure we provide the best care to all of our children. In all classes and in the school kitchen, we have posters displayed with photos of any children with any allergies, intolerances, or dietary requirements so all staff are aware.
Free School Meals
We are very fortunate at Sedley’s to have our school lunches cooked on-site in our school kitchen by CH & CO Catering Company.
School meals are to be paid for online at CH & CO Catering’s website and any queries can be made to Sarah Sullivan at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by telephone at 07880 037 143.
