Family Lunches

Family Lunches for 2020.

Come and join your child for lunch in school


Dear Parents,

Earlier this year family lunches were very popular in school. I have arranged some new dates with our kitchen staff for each class to have lunch with their parents, grandparents or child minders.


  • Thursday, 16th January                       –        Robins              
  • Thursday, 30th  January                      –        Goldfinch       
  • Thursday, 13th  February                    –         Wrens            
  • Thursday, 5th March                           –         Sparrows                                
  • Thursday, 19th March                         –         Kestrels          
  • Thursday, 2nd April                             –         Rosefinch       
  • Thursday, 23rd April                           –         Greenfinch     
  • Thursday, 7th May                               –        Eagles            
  • Thursday, 21st May                             –        Falcons          
  • Thursday, 4th June                              –         Owls 1            
  • Thursday, 25th June                             –         Owls 2            


If you would like to take part, please complete the form (which can be found in the front entrance) and send £2.60 for each adult and £2.20 for your child in an envelope marked ‘family lunch’ (if your child is receipt of Universal Free School meals or Free School Meals, you do not have to pay for them). We will need to know the adult meal choice but this can be done the week before. Menus can be found on the school website or if you would like a  paper copy,  in the front entrance by the disabled toilet.


The lunch will begin at 11:30. Please sign in at the office, collect your child or children and enjoy your lunch. If you have more than one child in school, they may also join you for lunch – siblings only please. Please do not arrive before 11.30am as we do not have the space to let you into school.


For safeguarding reasons, it is really important that you leave through the main entrance door after your lunch and don’t walk around school. Your child will then go out to play as normal. Mobile phones must not be used in school – thank you.
