EYFS and KS1 Pupils:

In line with recommendations from the School Food Plan (2013), the governing body at St Paul’s believe that pupils perform better when provided with a hot school meal at lunchtime. As such, we have a 'no lunchboxes' policy and all pupils in Phase 1 and Year 2 have school meals unless there are medical reasons why they should not. We cater for a range of dietary requirements, including vegetarian and halal.


“The government’s stated aim is to improve academic attainment and save families money. Universal free school meals for all primary pupils were among the key recommendations of the School Food Plan, which presented evidence that universal free school meals can help improve health, attainment and social cohesion, and help families with the cost of living.”

“It is up to school’s to decide whether infant pupils may still bring packed lunches to school “


Children’s Food Trust.
