Children eat their lunches in three sittings in the school hall. Each class has a dinner supervisor who takes responsibility for their group and monitors their behaviour at lunchtime. Good table manners are encouraged.
We offer hot meals at Upton Infant School, provided by Chartwells Catering. These hot meals are provided free for all children. Meal choices can be made using the online ordering system, but must be done at least 5 days in advance.
The menu options comprise a choice between a main course / vegetarian / jacket potato option and a choice of dessert. Different meals are also offered for special occasions such as Easter, or Chistmas for example.

Some parents opt to provide their own packed lunches for their child. As a Healthy School, we encourage children to eat a healthy and balanced diet. We urge all parents to provide their children with a sensible, nutritious lunch. Please see below for some suggestions for providing a healthy lunchbox.
Upton Infant School is also a “nut free” school. In the interests of other children with nut allergies, please do not include nuts in your child’s packed lunch.
The contents of all the children’s lunch boxes are not disposed of at the end of lunch, but are sent home in order that parents can see what their child has left uneaten. Please provide a small plastic bag for uneaten/unfinished yoghurts, as the contents may spill and cause a mess.
All children have a mid-morning snack and drink. We provide all children with a school water bottle which is refilled daily. All children are also provided with a piece of fruit each day.
