Hot School Meals – Hampshire Caterers
From September 2014 all children in our school are entitled to a free hot school dinner.
Our food is prepared by HC3S Hampshire Caterers. There are always two options, one of which is vegetarian. During the summer HC3S also offer a picnic lunch as an option.
A copy of the menu is available from the office or can be viewed on the parent notice board. Alternatively you can view the menu via http://www3.hants.gov.uk/hc3s/hc3s-primary/primarymenu.htm
Parents will be advised of changes to the menu.
Ideas for Lockdown lunches
Alternatively children may bring a packed lunch. We strive to maintain our Healthy School Status and request that parents support this by making healthy choices for lunch boxes. We discourage chocolate bars and fizzy drinks.
We also operate a nut free zone in school as some can children have life threatening allergies.
Free School Meals
Historically, if you are receiving certain tax credits or benefits your child would have been entitled to free school meals. As meals are now free for all our children this no longer applies. However if your child would have been entitled to free school meals under the old scheme they would be entitled to the pupil premium (see pupil premium section). There is an online service so you may check if you are eligible at http://www3.hants.gov.uk/hc3s/freeschoolmeals.htm You may use this website to check your eligibilty at anytime, should your circumstances change.
