Break Time Arrangements
Nursery and Reception children have continual indoor/outdoor access throughout the day. In addition, Reception to Year 6 children access the outdoor areas during their morning break time and lunchtime. Please ensure that your child has a coat so that they will be comfortable whatever the weather.
Drinks, Snacks & Free Milk
All children are required to bring a water bottle into school each day. Children are able to access fresh water throughout the day and encouraged to drink regularly. No flavoured water, squash or fizzy drinks are permitted for consumption.
At Jubilee Park Primary School, we place considerable emphasis on the importance of lunchtime, recognising the opportunity it gives children to socialise and interact whether they have a school meal or bring a packed lunch. School staff and midday supervisors care for the
children during this time and will encourage all pupils to eat their meals, interact with each other and ensure sensible behaviour in the hall and outside.
The school has excellent kitchen facilities which are managed by Chartwells. We offer a secure payment system for school meals called ParentPay. ParentPay allows parents to make payments to a secure online account, accessed by a unique username and password. Parents will receive these unique usernames and passwords at the start of the school year. We are unable to accept cheques or money at school. All school meals must be booked and paid for online, via ParentPay, in advance. All pupils will be provided with a copy of the School Menu to enable parents to make informed choices. Please advise the school if your child develops a food allergy, or has any other dietary requirements, for example, vegetarian, Halal, etc. It is the policy of Chartwells that a medical note must be provided for dietary requirements, if your child has any specific dietary requirements please contact Chartwells on 01633 265787.
Some parents prefer to provide a packed lunch and drink for their child. When this is the case we would request, for safety reasons, that you do not provide drinks in either cans or glass bottles. As we are working towards becoming a healthy school we would encourage parents to provide a healthy and nutritious packed lunch. Anything with nuts is not permitted due to children with nut allergies.
If you are in receipt of certain qualifying benefits, you may be entitled to free school meals. Visit www.newport.gov.uk/freeschoolmeals for further information, call 01633 656656 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
