At Holy Trinity we believe in encouraging a healthy approach to eating.
We offer you the choice of your child having a cooked school lunch every day, bringing a packed lunch from home daily or having cooked and packed lunches on different days!
Decided on a weekly basis, parents can choose for their child to have packed lunches on certain days of the week and a cooked school lunch on others.
Snacks and Drinks
Before morning break children in KS1 are given a fruit snack. Children in KS2 are encouraged to bring in a fruit snack from home for break time.
We encourage children to drink water throughout the day. We provide water stations at school as well as encouraging children to bring in their own water bottles daily.
Our school meals are provided by a third party supplier Wilson Jones who supply school meals to all schools in the Ascot cluster. Wilson Jones adhere to the Government’s guidelines for nutritional standards.
School meals cost £2.40, payable in advance via ParentPay. The link to the ParentPay website can be found here:

Healthy Packed Lunches
For those not wanting a school cooked lunch, children are able to bring a packed lunch. We encourage parents to make healthy packed lunches as we see these as being vital for getting children through the school day and instilling good eating habits in them for life. Whilst it can seem tedious and repetitive putting a packed lunch together day in day out, it need not be. The Food Standards Agency has put together some top tips for making healthy packed lunches. See Healthy Packed Lunches link below.
As a rule of thumb, avoid giving your child fizzy drinks and foods high in salt and saturated fat such as sweets, cakes and crisps. We have children in the school with allergies and aim to provide a safe environment for all children. Please remember not to include products containing nuts and remind your children they are not allowed to share or swap items in their lunchboxes. All lunchboxes, food and drink containers must be clearly labelled.
We ask parents to refrain from sending in 'sweet' treats on the occasion of your child's birthdays. To help them celebrate we allow them to dress in their own clothes.
