School Meals and Healthy Tuck


School Meals

Please click to see our current Lunch Menu


We have an excellent uptake of school meals at St Stephen's.  Our Kitchen Manager, Mrs Foulkes and her assistants Mrs Bridge and Miss Adams work hard to ensure the children are served with wholesome, healthy food.  If we are having a special theme day or week in school, Mrs Foulkes will work with us to plan a school meal that links in to our theme - during our International Week the children enjoyed food from a different country each day throughout the week.

 

Each Friday, Mr Lasan invites every child who has received a Star Award at our Celebration Assembly the previous Friday, to have lunch with him at a 'Top Table' during lunchtime. A separate table is set with table cloths and all the trimmings for the Star Award children and Mr Lasan. If your child has a packed lunch, they will bring this to the table. 

 

At Christmas time the whole school - children, staff and governors - sit down in the Hall for Christmas Dinner together:

Morning Break Healthy Tuck

We take part in the 'Health Schools' initiative. As part of this, our kitchen staff prepare a morning breaktime 'Healthy Tuck' snack for our children. The cost of Healthy Tuck is £1.45 per week, which is collected on a half termly basis.

If you choose not to take Healthy Tuck for your child, you may send a snack to school for morning breaktime.  However, it must be a healthy option, such as –

  • A piece of fresh fruit
  • Small pack of dried fruit (raisins, sultanas, apricot etc)
  • Fresh chopped vegetables (carrot sticks, celery etc)
  • Cheese and cracker
  • A piece of malt loaf
  • Toast
  • Teacakes
