Shakespeare Infant School

We Care

School Meals

During the lunch break the children are cared for by our team of Midday Supervisory Assistants whilst at play and eating their meal.




Children may have a school meal, bring a packed lunch or go home for lunch.  School meals are provided by Hampshire Caterers and are cooked in our own kitchen.


To enable children to have the main course of their choice we operate a colour coded choice system.  Each morning children choose the main course and put their name next to the appropriate colour. All menus and colour charts are in each class. Menus are also available from the School office. 


Meals can be taken on a daily or weekly basis.


All children at Shakespeare Infant School are entitled to free school meals under the Universal School Meals offer.

Universal Infant Free School Meals

With effect from 1 September 2014, all Key Stage 1 pupils are able to have a school meal at lunchtime, free of charge.

This applies to all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, and requires no registration.  Each child is entitled to a hot, two course meal at their school which will include a meat or non-meat main item, vegetables, potato, pasta or rice, salad and a dessert. There will be fresh water on the tables and we ensure that children have plenty to drink during lunchtime.
