The Value of Lunchtime in the Early Years Foundation Stage

Lunchtime is a valuable learning experience for children in the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Meals are important times for learning about being with others, taking turns and making choices. Children learn how to chop their own food and manipulate cutlery. They help lay the table, pour their own drinks and help to tidy things away.

Lunchtime is an enjoyable social time and children are encouraged to partake in polite chit chat and are taught basic table manners in a relaxed homely atmosphere.

What Makes a Healthy Packed Lunch

Healthy packed lunches can include the following or similar items: protein filled sandwiches or tortilla wraps such as tuna, chicken, ham or cheese; salads; yoghurts; carrot sticks and pasta. In addition, in place of a dessert you may like to provide a piece of fruit, a small cupcake or plain biscuit. Please do not include sweets.

Water is provided by the school, however you can provide your child with water to drink but not sweet sugared or fizzy drinks.

Please ensure your child’s packed lunch does not include nuts as we do have nut allergy sufferers in school.

Safeguarding

At Eglinton Primary School and Early Years Centre we establish and maintain an environment where children feel secure, are encouraged to talk, and are listened to when they have a worry or concern.  Children know that there are adults in the school whom they can approach if they are worried.  We believe our school is a place where staff and volunteers feel safe, are encouraged to talk and are listened to when they have concerns about the safety and well-being of a child.  We include opportunities in the PSHE curriculum for children to develop the skills they need to recognise and stay safe from harm.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other professionals when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns are discussed with parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.  Staff are trained to identify when a child may be at risk of neglect, abuse or exploitation and they report any concerns to the designated child protection officer using the agreed format. In addition to statutory duties we acknowledge that the school has pastoral responsibility towards all its children. Through our vigilance we aim to help build a stronger, safer community.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
