School meals are made on the premises by our catering team, led by Mrs Moore. The smell of freshly baked bread regularly wafts through the building the tempt everyone into the dining room!
What service does school offer?
The children have a choice of taking a school meal or bring a packed lunch from home. Meals are planning in line with nutritional standards set by the Department of Education and Skills. Menus for this term are shown on the ‘menus’ link. Occasionally menus may vary because fresh supplies have not been delivered.
At lunchtime the children sit in 'family' groups, with children from their house team.
The children have their own seat in the dining room - we find this makes lunchtime more settled and happy.
During morning break- between 10.30 and 10.45am, we ask the children to make a healthy choice of snack. No crisps or biscuits, but fresh fruit or vegetables instead. The children can bring their own fruit from home if they wish.
Children learn about the benefits of '5 a day' in class. Children at West Vale Primary have a chance to have fruit at break, at lunchtime and after school - so they are well on their way to the target.
Children have water bottles which they take home every day, wash, and fill with fresh water. This gives them access to water during class. At lunchtime, chilled fresh water is provided on the dining tables.
If your child has any special dietary needs, please contact Mrs Scott at school.
Our Catering Manager, Mrs Thompson along with our Cook in Charge, Mrs Moore, have experience of tailoring our menu to accommodate dietary requirements for medical needs.
