Lunchtime Arrangements at Ferrars


Children may have packed lunches or school dinners.  


Mrs Windsor-Frost and her team work hard to ensure that your children are offered a variety of nutritious foods which will appeal to all tastes and preferences.  If your child has any specific dietary requirements, due to religious belief or allergic condition, please write to Mrs Windsor-Frost, the kitchen manager, or make an appointment to see her.


Lunchtime is divided into two sittings:


  • Years 3 & 4:  12:15-1:00
  • Years 5 & 6:  12:45 - 1:30

The cost of a school meal will be £2.20 per day or £11.00 per week from January 2022.



Children who bring a packed lunch must bring it in a strong plastic container, which is clearly marked with name and class.  They may bring a cold drink in a plastic flask or a small plastic bottle.  Children may not bring hot drinks.


All children eat in the hall under supervision.


There are thirteen supervisory assistants and two senior supervisors who look after the children during the lunch break.  These supervisors, who are very important members of the school staff, do a very difficult job and we look to all parents to offer their fullest support.


A child who persistently displays anti-social behaviour during the lunch hour will be reported to the Head Teacher.  The parents will be contacted and if the child’s behaviour does not improve, and he / she subsequently causes problems for others in the school, then the parent may need to make alternative lunchtime arrangements for the child.  This is our ultimate lunchtime sanction and fortunately we rarely have to use it.
