Healthy Schools/School Dinners

Braunstone Frith Primary School is a healthy School.

In 2012 Braunstone Frith Infant School became one of the first schools in Leicester to gain Enhanced Healthy Schools Status. To do this the school worked hard on raising the awareness of the importance of diet and physical exercise amongst the school community.

This was done through;

Parents evenings which are used to provide information about school meals / packed lunches and provide tasting sessions.

Big cook, little cook after school club supported families in preparing, cooking and eating food.

Food Routes introduced many children to cooking and healthy eating; looking at where their food came from.

Breakfast Club

At Braunstone Frith Primary School we firmly believe that every child needs to start the day ready to learn. We offer a breakfast club from 8.30 am where children can have toast and a drink whilst enjoying some early morning activities.

School Dinners

Why not ensure your child has a healthy, nutritious two course school dinner?

Our 4 week primary menu has an excellent variety of traditional favourites and new dishes.

How do I pay for my child’s meal?

You can pay for your child’s meal by using ParentPay. Please contact the school office for more information. If you think your child might be entitled to free school meals contact the council on 0116 454 1009 option 3 for more information or visit: www.leicester.gov.uk/freeschoolmeals

The government has set out strict guidelines that all councils must now follow when preparing food for children. Leicester City Council follows these guidelines strictly and by doing so provides city children with a healthy tasty meal each school day.

Packed Lunches

If your child is bringing their own packed lunch to school, they will need to bring a drink in a plastic (no glass) non- leak container, a lunch box containing; a sandwich, a piece of fruit and a snack which may be a small biscuit bar or a packet of crisps. We do not allow any foods containing nuts on site due to nut allergies present in school.
