Meals and Lunches
Mary Queen of Peace is a Healthy Breaks School, this means that milk or water, fruit or yogurt should be consumed at this time. Milk is available for morning break (paid termly).
A school dinner is available for those who wish to use this service. Dinner money can be paid each Monday for the whole week or daily when required. A copy of the canteen menu will be sent to you monthly and posted on the website. You may be entitled to free school meals and forms are available from the school office or on line at:
Forms should be completed and returned to the Education Authority at North Eastern Region. For administrative purposes this should be done by 15 September 2017. It is in the parents’ interest and the school’s interest that every child who is entitled to free school meals is registered. Your child may not want to take a school meal every day but they could use this service, for example, when they forget their lunchbox.
Children should be given lunchboxes that they can open and close themselves. Your child’s name should be clearly marked on the lunchbox. Please follow good healthy eating practice and provide one treat for your child in their lunchbox.
Extremely important: We have a nut free policy in school and any products containing nuts are not to be brought into school.
At the beginning of the school year you will also be issued with a data capture form to record medical information. Please inform the school if your child has specific needs; for example information of allergies, inhalers, hearing or sight. You should keep the school informed of any changes to medical information or emergency contact information. Mary Queen of Peace has an Administration of Medication Policy, which your child’s teacher can advise you of, when required.
