Lunchtime & School Dinner Charges
We use school grid for our lunch system. You will be able to make all lunch payments on this system and children will be able to make their lunch choices from home. Once your child has been registered with our school, you will receive an email from school grid asking you to sign up, this email will go out later during the summer term.
School meals must always be paid for in advance so please ensure that you have credit on your child’s account at the start of the week. You will be asked to either provide a home prepared packed lunch or take your child home for lunch if there is a debt on your dinner account.
The present cost of a school meal is £2.60 per day. Children can choose whether to have a school meal every day, or a mixture of days. The charges for half-term for the various meal options are detailed below.

These charges do not take into account any school trips your child’s class may have: please deduct any meals your child may miss because of this. Meals are only paid for if your child is in on the day so any overpayment will be held on your child’s account. If your child goes home unexpectedly during the morning then you will be charged for the missed meal.
If your child brings in a packed lunch it needs to adhere to our school healthy eating policy and should be:
- Balanced and nutritious
- Nut free
- No fizzy drinks, sweets or chocolate
Children should bring their lunch into school in a small bag clearly labelled with their name and class.
Please be aware that we are a nut free school
Drinking water is always available free of charge

We have a selection of daily activities and resources to help pupils develop skills of cooperation and turn-taking.The activities are rotated on a weekly basis around the year groups, this includes the use of our Multi Use Games Area (MUGA). We also have a range of lunchtime clubs including Quiet Zone: this area is used for drawing and reading, origami, games club, friendship club and construction club to name a few. Some children are selected to join these clubs and some are open to all.
The Brookland Buddies are Year 5 and 6 pupils who apply to support others during lunchtime in the playground and inside during wet play. They wear yellow baseball caps so that they can be easily identified.
All lunchtime leaders have green cards and stickers that pupils may receive for displaying the school values.
