2020-21 Summer Menu (after Easter holidays)
Fourfields has its own catering service, with nutritional meals prepared on site, and served on a daily basis for a cost of £2.35 per pupil per day working out at £11.75 per week As of 2nd November 2020 all meals will need to be ordered 7 days in advance via the Pupil Asset Parent App eg: a meal for Monday 2nd November will need to be ordered by Sunday 25th October (children will no longer be able to order meals at registration).
The governing body at Fourfields is keen to promote children's understanding of a healthy and balanced diet and supports our Catering Team who are working towards the Bronze Award under the Food for Life project. This means that over 75% of the food served at our school is prepared and cooked 'from scratch' by our Catering Team. We have our meat supplied locally and our fish is marine sustainable. Our meals are served on plates (as opposed to flight trays) and we have homemade bread and salad (occasionally sourced from our School Garden) available every day.
Free School Meals
Children in Foundation Stage, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a school lunch without cost following the introduction of the government's Universal Infant Free School Meal initiative.

We are robust with the management of allergens within our school. These are identified in our published menus but if you require further information about the food allergens within our school menus, please let the school office know and the Catering Manager will contact you.
During the course of the morning the pupils in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 are offered a snack which includes a piece of fruit or vegetable such as apple, pear, satsuma, carrot or banana which is provided free through the National Fruit & Vegetable Scheme. When available, Key Stage 2 children will also be offered a piece of fruit, alternatively they may like to bring a healthy snack or fruit or vegetables; we would prefer the children do not bring crisps, chocolate bars or similar snacks in packets which too often are found blowing around the school playground and do not support our Healthy School status.
Children in the Foundation Stage can enjoy a cup of milk (allergen 7) during their morning session (free) and all other children are offered milk during their lunch.
It is strongly recommended that all children bring in a named water bottle for access to water (no juices or squash please) during the day. This helps with learning and is a health and safety requirement in hot weather.
