At Falconbrook School all pupils in Reception and KS1 are provided with a free school lunch. This is paid for by the government.
For children in Nursery and KS2 the cost of a school lunch is £2:15 per day. From 1 April 2019 this will increase to £2.25 per day.
Please pay for your child’s school lunch in advance. Payment can be made online by clicking here or in cash at the school office. If you need further guidance about how to set up and use your online account you can read this booklet.
Children may bring a packed lunch to school if they prefer. This should be sent in with the child at the start of the day.

At Falconbrook Primary School we promote healthy living and eating. Topics that support children to understand why keeping themselves healthy is important are written into our curriculum framework.

We believe that it is important that children develop healthy eating habits from a young age.
Therefore, the following should not be included in your child’s packed lunch:
- Chocolate or chocolate covered biscuits
- Fizzy or sugary drinks
- Glass bottles
- Take-away food (hot or cold) including chips/fried chicken/burgers in buns
A healthy packed lunch could include:
- Sandwiches and / or Salad
- A piece of fruit
Children do not need to bring a drink to school, as drinks of water are available both in the dining room and outside in the playground.
Packed Lunches for School Trips:
Children, who bring a packed lunch from home for a school trip, should also follow the guidance above.
