School lunches are prepared at Ark Dickens Primary School. The children have a choice of
two main meals: Red = meat or fish; Green = vegetarian. Seasonable
vegetables and a dessert are always provided. Infant school pupils meals are free of charge.
Children who bring a packed lunch are accommodated in the School Hall. We ask that,
for health and safety reasons, packed lunches contain no glass bottles or fizzy drinks.
Please do not include bars of chocolate or sweets in your child’s packed lunch as we do
try to encourage healthy eating. Chocolate biscuits such as penguins/kitkats are fine,
but not Mars bars, etc. Packed lunches should contain everything the child needs for their
meal, eg. spoons, cups, etc. as it is not part of the caterers contract to supply them.
