Meals and Milk
We are proud at St. James' to offer cooked, tasty, nutritionally balanced meals using local produce wherever possible. Be it breakfast, lunch or tea, the children sit down to a hot meal with their friends where we can focus on table manners, conversation skills and encouraging independence.
Breakfast (Offered at £1.00 charge for any child attending the 7.45-9.00am session)
Held in the main school, children sit down to a hearty breakfast with children across the full school and nursery range. Children love the interactive experience and come out of breakfast club smiling ready for the day ahead.
A wide range of fruit and vegetable snacks are served. We aim to broaden our children's experiences by offering them seasonal choices and local produce. Children have free access to their water bottles throughout the session and are encouraged to be independent in accessing the milk and water jugs made available.
We are able to offer Nursery children a hot meal from our provider Chartwells.
Please go to our meals link under the Parents tab on the main home page.
Please be assured that lunchtime remains an important social occasion and staff will eat alongside your child.
High Tea (Offered at £1.00 charge for any child attending 3.00-5.00pm session)
High tea is served as part of the after school club with children across the full school and nursery range.
A relaxed and enjoyable part of the session where children are encouraged to reflect on their day whilst they eat their teatime snacks.
Meeting your child's needs
We are always happy to discuss your child's dietary requirements and will ensure that the food and drinks we are providing meet their needs. All staff have had allergy training and will work with you to create healthcare plans should this be needed. We are a nut free school and politely request that no items containing nuts are brought into school.
We know that some of our youngest children will still be getting used to solid foods. We are proud to be a breastfeeding friendly nursery and will fully support your child's weaning process just let us know your requirements.
