We encourage children to have a school lunch, as we feel it is an important part of their social development. A varied menu of nutritionally balanced meals – including a vegetarian option – is prepared in our school kitchen and served in the main hall. The menus for each week are available to view by both children and parents.
The children are seated at mixed age tables of six or seven with the older children serving the younger. Groupings are changed from time to time. Children who bring a packed lunch to school will be seated together, also in mixed groups, in the main hall.
Payment for school lunches can be made via our online payment system SIMS Agora, payments can be made by debit or credit card with a minimum top up of £11.50. Please contact Anita Armitage for more information on activating your SIMS account. Payments should be made via SIMS Agora at www.simsagora.co.uk or by cheque, made payable to Foxton Primary School. All school meals must be paid for in advance.
Children are able to combine packed lunches and school meals on different days, as long as they mention it to the class teacher at registration.
Children who bring their own meal should store their lunch boxes on the cloakroom shelves above the hooks. Please note that ice packs may be necessary in the summer.
