School Meals



We want our children to have a happy, safe and fun lunchtime. During lunchtime, children will go to the hall to eat their lunch and will also have an outside play. Whilst outside, the children have the chance to play with a range of play equipment. 


 Packed Lunches

Many children bring in packed lunches to eat with their friends in the hall.  Each class has an assigned Midday Supervisor, who oversees the children eating and makes sure that the children have a happy and safe lunchtime.

As a school we promote healthy eating;  click this link for helpful suggestions from the the NHS Change for Life website on ideas for your child's lunchbox. As part of this, water is provided on each table for the children to drink.


PLEASE NOTE: We are a nut-free school


Hot School Meals

At Wimborne First School & Nursery, our hot meals are cooked onsite by HC3S.  Children can choose from a meat, vegetarian meal or jacket potato meal.  

PLEASE NOTE: If your child has any allergies, please follow this link to the HC3S Special Diets page, where you can register your requirements.

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free hot school meal. Funding for this is provided by Central Government based on the number of children opting to receive the meals.  Should you choose to take up this entitlement, your child will receive a hot, nutritious lunchtime meal each day.

Children in Year 3 and Year 4 can also enjoy a hot school meal at lunchtime by ordering from the same menu form; the cost per meal is £2.50 and must be paid in advance for the term.

The government hopes this will not only contribute towards children’s health, but also increase attainment.


If you have any queries about hot meals please contact the school office on 01202 882532 and office staff will be happy to answer any questions.
