All Infant children (Reception, Year 1 & Year 2) are entitled to free school lunches. We have a 92% uptake of free school lunches for our Infant children at Holy Trinity. Apply online for FSM for junior children.
We offer a balanced, healthy and tasty diet and children are included in the consultation process over menus, using their own learning about healthy eating to come to informed decisions.
Meals can be paid for half-termly or termly – please contact the office for prices. If children are eligible for free school meals, it is important that parents fill in the application form even if their children have a packed lunch; as this allows the school to get funds to help with other things too.
All children are given a piece of fruit at break time. This is financed by government up to the age of 7, and by our PTA for the older children. Children are also encouraged to bring their own fruit to eat at playtime. Sweets,crisps,nuts and chocolate may not be brought to school.
Studies have shown that concentration can drop by up to 30% if children are not properly hydrated. We provide facilities for children from Year 1 onwards to have their own water bottles refilled with cool, filtered water; and to have them available throughout class time. Please send in a sports cap bottle every day. In Reception the children have designated drinking times to keep their fluids up.
