Icknield School has its own kitchen and all meals are prepared and cooked on the premises. School lunch is an integral part of the school day and the learning process is extended to the dining room. We encourage the children to eat wisely by providing a well balanced menu, using fresh ingredients. Each day there is a choice of hot and cold meals. Jacket potatoes are also available every day throughout the Autumn/Winter.
All children joining Reception Classes have the opportunity to have a school lunch on the new Reception Day held towards the end of the Summer term, and have lunches at school when they stay full time
If you opt for your child to have a packed lunch, it should be brought to school in an appropriate container - preferably a Tupperware type box with a removable lid to save space at the table. Lunch Boxes must show your child's name and the name of the class teacher. We encourage healthy eating within school, so please do not send in sweets and chocolate bars as part of your child’s packed lunch. If you wish your child to change from having school lunch to having a packed lunch each day, or vice versa, we ask you to complete a form at the school office, giving one week's notice of the change to allow for the kitchen's ordering of supplies.
Children who have packed lunch can take part in Friday Favourites or Wednesday Roasts or both. If your child wishes to take part, whatever their choice might be they will be expected to have a school dinner every Friday and / or Wednesday for that particular half term.
