Breakfast Club runs daily, and the food served is regulated by South Gloucestershire Council so that nutritional guidelines are followed to produce tasty and nutritional breakfasts. See the Breakfast Club Menu
We provide a tuck shop during the morning break for KS2 children at which they can buy a variety of fruit. Children in KS2 can also bring in fruit from home if they wish. Children in Reception and KS1 receive free daily fruit under the government fruit scheme.
All reception children receive free milk until their 5th birthday. They then have the opportunity to purchase a carton of milk through the Milk Service. See the school office for further information.
Good quality school meals are cooked on the premises daily to meet stringent nutritional standards set by the Council. The cost is published in the school newsletter. Payment for school lunches must be made via the SchoolMoney online payment system, prior to lunch being taken. Please ensure you top up your school dinner account on a regular basis.
School Packed Lunch
We are now offering parents and carers the chance to purchase a packed lunch from the school kitchen. Children staying for a school packed lunch will be having the following each day
Monday – wrap with filing
Tuesday, sandwich with filling
Wednesday – bread roll with filling
Thursday – half baguette with filling
Friday – wrap with filling
The fillings will be either ham, egg, cheese, tuna (with or without mayo), they are also entitled to either the dessert main choice or any dessert available on that day.
Children may bring a packed lunch. Please provide a suitable container clearly labelled with your child’s name. As part of the school’s healthy eating approach, we encourage a good mix of healthy foods and regularly advise parents about appropriate contents of packed lunches. If parents require any advice, we are very happy to provide it. We recommend a good proportion of carbohydrates (bread, pasta or rice), plenty of fruit and vegetables and some dairy, meat or fish produce. Crisps, biscuits and cakes should be limited to a couple of times a week. Please do not send in glass bottles, cans, fizzy drinks or sweets, and please note that children are expected to bring all their waste back home. Please remember that we are a nut free school! Also, please do not bring chewing gum into school for lunch or at any other times. If your child is seen with gum, they will be asked to throw it away. This is because gum causes a choking issue and if dropped can undermine the lovely grounds that make up Longwell Green school. Thank you for understanding.
