School Meals

We are fortunate at Copythorne to have our own kitchen and meals are prepared on site and supplied by Hampshire County Council Education Catering Company (formerly HC3S). The children are able to have a choice of freshly prepared meals every day, from a set menu.

Click here for information about the ingredients used in our school meals and here for more information about healthy choices.

We send home a menu, via parent mail, so you can help your child choose what they would like. If you want your child to have a school meal they will need to order it when they arrive at school each morning.  All infant school children are entitled to a free school meal. If your family is receiving Government benefits, the school may be entitled to additional funding called Pupil Premium funding, which is used to help raise your child’s attainment. Click here to see if you are entitled to Pupil Premium.

If parents prefer, children are able to bring a packed lunch, from home, instead of choosing a school dinner. Our school has ‘Healthy School’ status and we try to encourage healthy eating. We have a whole school food policy, which gives suggestions about what to include in a lunch box. This is available from the school office.
