Manston Primary is a Healthy School with healthy eating being a high priority. Food is locally sourced, presented and served to appeal to young children. All meals are freshly prepared on site each day in the school kitchen, providing an innovative and well balanced diet for your child. We always have a salad bar option along with vegetarian and non vegetarian options. Please notify us if your child does have any special dietary requirements and we will do our utmost to accommodate them.
Children in Key Stage One are entitled to a UNIVERSAL FREE SCHOOL MEAL until they enter Key Stage Two. Our food is freshly prepared and cooked from scratch by our dedicated team led by Mrs Dianne Denbigh - Catering Team Leader. Don't let your child miss out on this wonderful opportunity. Mrs Denbigh and her team provide a varied menu that provides three or more choices for pupils each day.
The cost of a school lunch for Key Stage Two children is £2.40 per day £12.00 per week. All lunches must be paid in advance of meals taken via your ParentPay account as Manston Primary is a cash free environment. Mrs Milner is the school administrator and can be contacted regarding any lunch or online payments.
If your child has a medical appointment and will be attending school later in the morning and require lunch, please let your class teacher and Mrs Milner know in advance by email or letter. Your child can then be included in the daily figures to the kitchen.
If you child attends school and is taken home ill on a morning before 10.30am a charge for lunch will not be made. After this time - daily figures will have been submitted to the kitchen and a charge will be made.
Each week the lunchtime staff select children who displayed impeccable manners and excellent behaviour during lunchtime to join Mr Clay for lunch. All children selected receive a certificate in recognition of this during our achievement assemblies.
As a healthy school, children are encouraged to bring a named water bottle into school should they be thirsty throughout the day. Water is also readily available from dispensers around school to replenish water bottles.
