Thames Ditton Infant School

Learning to learn, learning for life

School Meals

All children at the infant school will receive a free school meal.


All pupils are monitored during lunch time, and both school dinner and packed lunch pupils are encouraged to finish their lunches by our midday meal supervisors and TA’s.


During both morning and lunchtime play, toys, P.E. equipment and the trim trail are on offer to all pupils and are supervised by staff.



Please try to pack a healthy lunch for your child and make sure that food packets can be opened independently. Please could you note that we have several children at school who suffer from a severe allergy to nuts. Consequently, the school is a nut free zone. However, on occasions, we notice that some children are bringing in packed lunches that contain nuts, e.g. peanuts, peanut butter, Nutella, oat bars (containing traces of nuts) etc. We do not permit sweets, chocolate or fizzy drinks in lunchboxes. (Please see your induction pack, or Packed Lunch Policy for further guidance).



All children are encouraged to bring a water bottle to school on a daily basis. Please make sure they are washed and replenished daily. During the day, children are encouraged to refill them, as appropriate, at the filtered water coolers we have fitted around the school. New bottles are available for purchase in the school office.
