Food and Drink


Water is available at all times and pupils are encouraged to drink regularly.  Cans, cartons and bottles of flavoured drinks are not allowed in School.


A cooked breakfast and/or cereal, toast, fruit, yoghurt and fruit juice is served from 7.15 – 8.00am to Nursery and Pre-School pupils attending an extended day and those pupils from Reception to Year 6 who are booked for Breakfast.

Morning Snack

All pupils are provided with healthy snacks at break time.  Pupils in Nursery, Pre-School, Reception and Key Stage 1 may also have a drink of milk.


All pupils and teachers eat lunch together in the Dining Hall, in two sittings: Early Years start lunch at 11.50am and Key Stage 2 start lunch at 12.45pm.  Pupils in Nursery and Pre-School are served at the table, Reception choose and collect their meal choices with staff supervision, and Years 1 – 6 have trays and are supported in their choices.  Good table manners are expected and we encourage children to eat a full and balanced meal.  We will always do our best to cater for special diets which can be requested by writing to Deputy Head, Mrs Conway.  Menus are available to view at the beginning of each term via My School Portal (parent login required).

Wraparound Care: After School Session

This session runs after school until 6.15pm.  A hot meal, fruit, home-made cakes and juice is offered from 4.45 – 5.15pm.

Nut Free

Walthamstow Hall is a nut and sesame-free School and we appreciate parents co-operation in ensuring that pupils do not bring into School anything containing nuts or sesame seeds.
