Food & Drink

We understand how important a balanced, nutritious diet is for our children and encourage healthy eating at Corfe Castle Primary School.

Break Time Snacks

The Government provides free fruit snacks in the morning for children in Reception and Key Stage One. Older children are encouraged to bring in their own healthy snacks for break time, although it is preferable if these are fruit or another similar healthy option.

The Government also provides free cartons of milk for all four year olds and parents are able to pay for milk to continue when  their child turns five.

Drinking Water

All children are encouraged to bring a named bottle of water to school with them. This bottle of water is kept in the classrooms and can be refilled as necessary so that they children always have a drink to hand.


Lunchtime is from 12pm until 1pm. Children can choose to bring a healthy packed lunch (no nuts please) or have a hot school meal. The hot school meals are provided by Chartwells and you must order your meals at least a week in advance via the website. Please contact us if you think you may be entitled to free school meals.

All children in Reception and KS1 are entitled to Free School Meals.

These Free School Meals, and additional chargeable school meals for children in KS2, can be ordered online via Chartwells
