Lunchtimes

School lunches

Meals are cooked fresh daily at Wirksworth Infant School to the Derbyshire menu by our Catering Team, Anne-Marie Knighton and Mariea Watson. Meals are exported to Wirksworth Church of England School and served hot at both sites. Children are encouraged to try everything on the menu - there's always a good variety to choose. Lunchtimes are social occasions, and chance for learning too - it's great if you can practise independent eating skills at home, such as using a knife and fork and sitting together at a table for meals.

School lunches are currently provided free of charge to all infant children under the Government's Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM) policy. We assume all children will have a school meal unless the parent/carer informs school in writing. You may send a packed lunch from home if you prefer. Special diets can be catered for (doctor's letter required), as well as vegetarian/vegan preferences.

If you are receiving income-related benefits, please apply for Free School Meals HERE. This will ensure the school can claim all the Government Pupil Premium Grant Funding it is entitled to.

Lunchtimes are lots of fun playing, laughing and chatting with our friends
