Falcons School for Girls in collaboration with our catering company, Brookwoods, promotes healthy eating. Meat and vegetables used by the catering staff in food preparation are sourced from local suppliers wherever possible. The catering department issues a menu at the start of each term and a weekly menu is displayed outside the dining room. Themed lunches are often introduced such as food from around the world.
Lunchtimes are on a rolling lunch basis with the younger pupils eating first and attended by staff members to help them. Lunch begins at 12.10pm and lasts until 1:10pm, with staggered time slots according to year group.
A copy of the termly menu is available to view below.
A healthy snack is provided for all pupils every morning break time. Those staying for afterschool clubs and care will also have a snack in the afternoon. No snacks will need to be provided by parents.
Drinking plenty of water enhances learning. Pupils will be provided with a water bottle which will be refreshed daily by the teaching assistants. We also have water fountains in the playgrounds for the pupils to drink from.
Special attention is paid to allergies and food intolerances, religious restrictions and medical conditions such as diabetes. We ensure each child’s needs are meticulously met, with coloured name tags and plates in the lunch hall and clear labels on packed lunches. We are a nut free school.
The Brookwood Partnership provides all of our food at Falcons School for Girls.
