Children can either have a school lunch or bring a packed lunch. A drink of water is offered to all children, although the children may bring in their own drink in a suitable container. The midday supervisors encourage the children to eat their lunch; if there is a problem with your child not eating properly then we will inform you.
School meals must be paid for every Monday morning. Children may only change from packed lunch to school meals at the half term or end of term break. If your child is late and requires a school meal then the office must be informed by 10am, when the meals have to be ordered.
School meals at Bishop Ridley are provided by Harrison Catering.

Infant children are able to bring in a drink of their own, this should be in a carton, plastic bottle or flask, not in a glass bottle. Water is available from the drinking fountains around the school. Infant children are provided with a piece of fruit at mid-morning break (as part of a Government-funded scheme). Junior children are also encouraged to bring in fruit to eat at morning break time.
All children are allowed to bring in a water bottle (the sports type, which will not spill) which they keep in their classroom and which are refilled when necessary. They have access to these during class time, to prevent dehydration and to aid concentration (in theory!).
