Lunchtime at Fernwood Primary and Nursery School – Junior Building
Lunchtime at the juniors is a positive, social experience. We have meals cooked on the school premises by our cook and her assistant cook who are both helped by our kitchen assistants.
We aim to provide our children with a healthy balanced lunch and a safe, happy playtime. Our school menu is regularly reviewed and aims at five fruit/vegetables a day.
The daily menu is on show in the reception area for parents and children to read.
If your child has a specific dietary requirement, please feel free to discuss this with us and we will try to accommodate their specific need. We also cater for children who prefer a vegetarian diet and we regularly provide halal choice on the menu. . Our school dinners do not contain any form of nuts and because of possible allergies
We try to encourage those children who bring packed lunches to make healthy choices. We do not allow children to bring any type of nuts to school as part of their lunchbox food. No fizzy drinks or sweets are allowed. We also discourage whole packets of crisps. Water or a fruit drink should be sent in a plastic flask or container—not a glass bottle please.
Please ensure that all lunchboxes and water bottles are clearly labelled with your child’s name and class.
