School Lunches

Meals are cooked on the premises by Hampshire Caterers. Particular attention is paid to providing healthy, nutritionally balanced meals. Vegetarian, special diets and packed lunch options are available daily. There is a wide selection of items on the menu and the meals are very popular. A link to the current menu can be found below:

The cost of a two course meal is £2.15 per day – £10.75 per week.

Payment should be made in advance and bills are sent out at the start of each term. Please ensure money is sent in a sealed envelope marked with your child’s name and an explanation as to what the money is for. Cheques should be made payable to Compton Primary School. If you feel that your child may be entitled to a free school meal please contact the Admin Officer who will be pleased to help you.

Alternatively, children may bring a packed lunch. This should be packed in a box with the child’s name clearly marked. We have achieved healthy schools stutus and ask you to consider this when packing your child’s lunchbox. Glass bottles, fizzy drinks and sweets are not permitted.

Key Stage One pupils do not require a snack for mid morning break as the school participates in a fruit and vegetable scheme which provides each child in Classes 1 and 2 (Ladybirds and Hedgehogs) with a healthy, daily snack. Reception children also benefit from a scheme to provide free milk until they join Class 2 (Hedgehogs).

Key Stage Two children are able to purchase a healthy snack from the tuck shop operated by the school cook.

Children are asked not to bring any food item to school which contains nuts. This is to safeguard a number of pupils in school who are allergic to nuts and who could suffer an anaphylactic reaction if in the vicinity of nut products.

All children are also asked to bring a filled labelled water bottle to school each day.
