Lunchtimes at Slade run from 12:00 to 13:15 in EYFS and KS1, whilst in KS2 they start at 12:15 and finish for the afternoon session at 13:30.

During their lunch break, the children get to play under the supervision of our Lunchtime team on the playground, or in the warmer months on the school field.  There are clubs that the children can join that run at lunchtime as well as the opportunity to visit the school library.

The children will eat either a prepared packed lunch from home, or a freshly cooked warm meal from our contracted caterers, Nourish, who cook their daily menu here on site in our kitchen, lead by head cook Clare Derrick.

School Meals from Nourish

Nourish provide healthy choices daily, using local and seasonal produce from their menus which are updated to reflect the time of year and run on a three week cycle.  They will cater for any dietary needs or other special requirements.  Nourish also hold regular special meal days and competitions with prizes donated by Clare, our cook.

School meals are free of charge to all children in EYFS and KS1 (Years R - 2).  In KS2, meals cost £2.20 per day.  These meals must be paid for in advance through Nourish's online payment partner, ParentPay.

Packed Lunches

Children are welcome to bring in a healthy packed lunch from home.  We are proud of being recognised as a Healthy School, so therefore encourage the packed lunch to include a brown or wholemeal breaded sandwich or wrap, a portion of fruit including tomatoes or cucumber, cheese and a yoghurt.  The packed lunch should also include a drink.

We are a nut free school, so please avoid nuts of any kind for lunch or breaktime snack.
