All school meals are free of charge!
The school has a policy on how lunchtimes work which has been implemented in light of the new Universal Infant Free School Meal policy implemented by the Coalition Government in September 2014.
You can read our policy here:
The school lunchtime runs between 11.40am and 12.55pm. We employ 13 lunchtime supervisors with one Midday Supervisor who oversees the lunchtime period.
12.00pm Year 2 – Leopards & Lions
12.00pm Packed Lunches – All years
12.20pm Year 1 and Year 2 – Jaguars & Tigers
All children are encouraged to eat their lunch but we do not force them to do so. If a child refuses to eat we will let you know. If they do not feel hungry or do not each very much, we will let you know via a slip home. We check to ensure that all children have eaten at least something from their packed lunch.
All school meals are free of charge and so we encourage all of our parents to sign up for school meals. However, if you would like to provide a healthy packed lunch, you can find more information and ideas on what to provide here.

We supervise all children at lunchtime. However, accidents do still happen such as bumps and falls, especially when children are playing games. If a child suffers an injury at lunchtime, an accident slip will be completed and given to the class teacher to discuss with the parents at home time. If there is a more serious injury, we will phone home first.
