Every child should have access to a healthy, balanced and nutritious school meal.
As a school, we strongly believe in the social benefits of children eating together in a ‘family’ atmosphere and therefore we hope that parents will support the School Meals Provider (Caterlink), whenever possible.
Families receiving Income Support may be eligible for free meals and confidential information is available from the school office.
Caterlink provide nutritionally balanced, delicious meals cooked at Skegness Grammar School, in lines with the dietary requirements of the children in our school.
Menus are sent home in advance and are available to view here on the website; a range of options is provided. Meals do need to be booked in advance, please contact the school office for more information.
Every child in Reception and Years 1 and 2 is entitled to a free school meal.
Food for other year groups can be ordered for a whole term at the start of each term. You can pay in weekly or termly instalments but the order request must be submitted prior to the school term starting. We ask that you pay directly into our school bank account (details available on request).
Meals cost £2.35 each and please remember to put your child’s name on the front of the menu. Optional fillings for the jacket potato are; tuna, coleslaw, cheese or beans and the alternative choice for sweet is yoghurt or a piece of fruit.
If your child is bringing a packed lunch, please send the lunch in a plastic box with the child’s name clearly marked. Please ensure that drinks (non fizzy) are in a secure plastic container – we are a healthy school and discourage sweets or chocolate at lunchtimes. If you think your child may be entitled to free school meals, please contact the School Administrator.
All children receive a morning break when they are able to eat a healthy snack from home.
We do not sell food at breaktimes, so please ensure your child is equipped with a snack.
Children in Key Stage 1 are given a piece of fruit or a carrot as part of the National Fruit Scheme. Children are allowed to play on our equipment during playtimes.
We encourage all our children to bring a sports bottle filled with water to drink during the day. This helps their brain function better and keeps them more alert.
Milk is provided free of charge to children under five. It is delivered to school and stored in a fridge to ensure the children enjoy a cool drink at break time.
