At Holy Trinity we offer all of our children hot, healthy, balanced meals created using top quality ingredients.
Chartwells deliver these meals to us daily and the meals are cooked on the premises. For all of our infant children (Puffins class) this meal is offered at no cost via the national Free School Meals Scheme. These meals do not therefore need to be booked with Chartwells.
Parents have the flexibility for their children to eat on individual days or every day. For our junior children (in Eagles and Falcons classes) meals must be ordered two weeks in advance.
To order meals for your child please click on the meal selector logo. Full details of how Chartwells work can be found on their website: www.westsussex.mealselector.co.uk.
If a parent is receiving certain welfare benefits listed their child may be eligible for a free schools meal.
Please ask in the school office for further details or apply on the County Council website:
Registering for free meals could raise an extra £1,300 for your child’s school to fund valuable support like extra tuition or additional teaching staff. This additional money is available from central government for every child whose parent is receiving one of the welfare benefits listed on the form. It is therefore important to sign up for free school meals, even if your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, so that the school receives as much funding as possible.
We are also very happy for children to have packed lunch if they prefer, and all children sit together in our hall in winter or outside when the weather is suitable.
If your child has a packed lunch please ensure that it has a healthy selection of fruit, protein and carbohydrate and that it does not contain chocolates or sweets. Children should also be provided with a non-fizzy drink, preferably water. Plastic water bottles are available from the school office.
