School Dinner Menu
We are very fortunate at Exwick Heights that we can offer homemade, fresh food, every day. When serving up meals our priority has to be individual dietary requirements e.g. vegetarian and in particular allergies. Therefore, we are very sorry that we are unable to accommodate changes to the menu e.g. no beans or no tomatoes. We feel that there is sufficient choice on each day that if your child does not like a particular item then you can select a different meal for them. Alternatively, they can simply leave an item if they don’t like it. Thank you for your support with this.
Under a DFES scheme KS1 children are provided with free fruit during the day, so they have an opportunity to eat a healthy snack. The children in the juniors are encouraged to bring fruit for a mid-morning snack.
Children are encouraged to bring water to school, in a proper water bottle, for use during the day. Alternatively, water is available throughout the day. If your child brings a drink to school to have with their lunch, it is essential it is non-fizzy and in a plastic bottle.
Please make sure that any lunch box or bag is NAMED (no tins, or glass bottles, please). We would also appreciate it if you do not give your child peanut butter sandwiches. We have an increasing number of children in the school with severe peanut allergies.
Please do not give your child too much food. He or she will bring home any left over food, so please adjust the amount accordingly. We encourage healthy eating at school, consequently we do not allow children to bring fizzy drinks and sweets including chocolate bars (biscuit based bars are permitted, eg Penguin etc.)
School meals are prepared on the premises. They are of a high standard and we try to encourage as many children to stay as possible. There is a daily choice of a main meal, vegetarian alternative or a jacket potato.
Please note that all meals (paid or free) must be booked online using the School Gateway App. Please contact the office for more details.
