North Lancing Primary School - Healthy Eating

Hot School Meals

A hot meals service is offered at school run by Chartwells.

All pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free hot meal at lunch time.  You do not need to order these meals – the school will do this for you.   If your child is in Years 3 to 6, you can opt to pay for a hot meal.  Hot lunches can be ordered on line at, tel: 0845 6037998, or 01243 836130.  Meals need to be ordered one week in advance, alternatively children may bring their own packed lunch.

Free lunches can be supplied to children whose parents are in receipt of Income Support, Income Based Job Seeker’s Allowance, support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999, Pension Credit, Income related Employment and Support Allowance or Child Tax Credit with assessed income below £16,190, but the necessary authorisation (with proof of receipt of benefit) has to be obtained, please ask at the reception office for details. (This information is confidential).

The number of children registered for free meals increases funding and we would very much appreciate parents registering their entitlement to free lunches even if they do not wish their child to receive a meal.  For further details, please contact the school office.

Playtime snacks

Children may bring a healthy snack to school and we allow fruit or vegetables only.

Children in Reception to Year 2 are provided with a free healthy snack each day.

We do encourage pupils to drink water regularly throughout the day and the school sells non-spill bottles that may be used in class.

Milk is available to order at
