Free School Meals

A quick reminder: If your circumstances have changed, it may be worth checking if you qualify for Free School Meals. A child is eligible for free school meals if their parent or carer receives certain benefits.

Even if your child prefers to have a packed lunch, being eligible means that the school receives additional funding. It's really easy to check, you just need to know your National Insurance number and a few other personal details. You can check whether you are eligible here: https://www.hants.gov.uk/educationandlearning/freeschoolmeals/juniorsecondary

Healthy Eating

We have a nut free kitchen at Abbotswood and we ask all parents to only provide nut free lunch boxes and snacks. Our school food policy includes guidance on packed lunches. The school requests that parents do not include fizzy/sugary drinks or any food that contains nuts.  We also recommend that parents do not include sweets, chocolate, crisps or cakes high in salt, fat or sugar.
