School Meals and Menus
Children are encouraged to eat the healthy balanced meal prepared in school so that they are best able to learn well, and have energy for play times. A menu is available so parents can see the range of food on offer. Specific dietary needs, for example vegetarianism or halal meat, are catered for.
Breakfast Club: Daily 08.00-08.30
All children are welcome to have a free breakfast at school. Parents must register children for Breakfast Club in advance so that we can cater and staff breakfast club appropriately.
The cost of a hot meal is £2.20 per day or £11.00 per week.
Children in the Early Years and KS 1, and those eligible for Free School Meals do not need to pay for their lunch.
All others can pay for their school meals with ParentPay:
The government hopes that the provision of free school meals for all children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 will not only contribute towards children’s health, but also increase attainment.
Martello Primary supports and encourages healthy eating amongst our children. If you do not wish to take-up the school’s delicious and healthy meals and prefer to bring a packed lunch for your child, we advise the following:
- a cheese or ham sandwich, roll or wrap;
- a piece of fruit;
- cheese triangle;
- yoghurt or yoghurt drink;
- cereal bar or flap jack;
- salad, pasta or rice salad;
- fruit juice or water.
There are lots of helpful ideas for a healthy lifestyle on the Change for Life website and leaflets.
