Lunch time is from 12.00 to 1.00 p.m. Children can have either a school meal or bring a packed lunch. Packed lunches should be brought in a labelled plastic container. Drinking water is available all day so please do not send your child in with cans or bottles of flavoured drinks. As we encourage our children to make healthy food choices we ask that their packed lunches do not contain sweets or chocolate bars.
We prepare delicious hot and cold healthy meals in our own kitchen and have some meals cooked at the Junior site due to kitchen capacity. School meals have to be ordered at least one week in advance. Meals cost £2.30 per day and must be paid for in advance. We ask that all school meals are booked and paid for via Parentpay.
We are continually looking for ways to improve our school meal service and would welcome any comments or suggestions that you have.
School Dinner Ordering Deadline
School Meals must be ordered at least one week in advance. As a rule dinners will close on the Sunday one week before the week you are booking for. Click on the following link to see the cut off dates for placing your dinner orders. The exception for this is school holiday time when we will ask for dinner orders to be in early to allow the kitchen time to make the necessary food preparations.
Where possible we ask that you please order for the entire term or well in advance.
Please note that paninis are only available at the Junior School and not at the Infant School.
Free School Meals
All children at the Infant School are entitled to free school meals. If your child attends the Junior School and you are in receipt of income support or receiving certain allowances your child may be entitled to free school meals. Please note however that those receiving Working Tax Credit will not be entitled. Further information and application forms are available on the following Free school meal application form link.
Kindness, Respect and Belonging
At the Wroughton Junior School, we know how important lunchtimes are. Not only do the children get the time to refuel and give themselves a well-earned break but they also get the opportunity to develop their social and physical skills. At the core of lunchtime management are the Playleaders, a group of dedicated staff to whom the safety, well-being and happiness of the children is paramount. At any given time during the lunchtime period you will find them playing games, offering kind words of encouragement and promoting the school’s core values of kindness, respect and belonging.
