Exning Primary School is a Healthy School and as such, we have a policy on the contents of children's packed lunches. Please see our guidance here
Click here to view or download the latest EATS hot meal menu where you can also find nutritional and allergen information for each week's menu. Meals provided include a hot two-course option with the choice of vegetables, salads and desserts. There's also a vegetarian option and options for some special dietary requirements. Menus are also available from the school office. Changes to the menu will be communicated to parent's via Class Dojo and/or Parentmail.
Children can choose between sandwiches or wraps and have a choice of fillings such as ham, egg, cheese, tuna, jam or Marmite. There will also be a selection of healthy snacks and a cold dessert option.
If your child is going on a school trip then they can be provided with a packed lunch. You will be asked to indicate if your child requires a cold packed lunch on the initial trip letter from the class teacher.
School meals cost £2.30 per meal. £11.50 per week.
If your child would like school dinners, you can go online and pay for school meals through Suffolk County Council.

If you would prefer to pay by cash or cheque please send dinner money in a named envelope and hand into the class teacher. Envelopes are available at the office on request. Dinner money can be paid daily, weekly or half termly. Please make cheques payable to Suffolk County Council.
From September 2014 all children in Reception and Years One and Two will be entitled to free lunches as part of the Government's new Universal Infant Free School Meal policy.
For some of these children, schools will also be able to claim Pupil Premium, which will help provide them with further support. The criteria for eligibility is the same as the free school meal criteria for Key Stage 2 students detailed below.
The criteria for eligibility is where parents/guardians are in receipt of one or more of the following benefits:
Income-based Job Seekers' Allowance
Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
the Guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
Child Tax Credit, provided you are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit, and have an annual gross income, of no more than £16,190 as assessed by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs
Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
