Kings’ Forest School has’ Healthy Schools’ status. Our cook provides a healthy and delicious cooked meal each day, with a dessert. Jacket Potatoes are also available along with a salad bar. The cost of a school meal is £2.00 and must be paid on the first day of the week. The schools preferred method of payment is via online payments, but if you wish to pay by cash/cheque please put the money in a clearly marked envelope, and give to the class teacher or hand in to the office. Cheques should be made payable to Kings’ Forest Primary School.
Facilities are provided for children to bring packed lunches if they prefer. Lunch boxes must be clearly marked with your child’s name and contain their lunch time food only. Please do not include nuts of any kind, sweets, chocolate bars or fizzy drinks in your child’s packed lunch. A drink of water is provided for all children who eat their lunch at school. We offer incentives for children who bring a healthy packed lunch in the form of stickers and praise.

We are committed to healthy eating and so children have brown toast or fruit at break time (10p toast, 15p fruit pots), unless there is an underlying medical condition for example Diabetes. Children in the Foundation Stage/Key Stage one are provided with a snack by the government ‘Fruit and Vegetable Scheme’ which they eat in the afternoon.
Free milk is available to children until the day of their fifth birthday. All children should have a plastic drink bottle in school which they can fill with cool water throughout the day. KFPS has healthy school status and apart from lunchtime, children should only have water or weak squash.
