Hogsthorpe Primary Academy

The staff of Hogsthorpe attaches a high priority to fostering links between the school, the home and the community. We seek to produce caring, well-educated, well-behaved and law-abiding citizens.

Food

Every child should have access to a healthy, balanced and nutritious school meal.

This is something we take very seriously.

Hot Meals

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 instalments but the order request must be submitted prior to the school term starting.

Meals cost £2.40 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 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 do not allow sweets or chocolate at lunchtimes. If you think your child may be entitled to free school meals, please contact the School Administrator.

Mid-Morning Break

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.
