Packed lunches

Packed lunches must be provided for all children that have not ordered a hot meal. These should be nutritionally healthy with a balance of protein, fruit and fibre. Insulated flasks are allowed to keep food warm but not those with a glass vacuum lining. There should be no sweets, nuts or chocolate bars and no fizzy drinks (no glass bottles or cans please). We also recommend that children shouldn’t be eating crisps everyday as these have high levels of salt.

Due to food allergies please ensure that your child does not have any nut products in school, so no spreads,

or healthy biscuits with nuts in them.

Free school meals

Is your child eligible for free school meals?

The rising cost of living means everyone could use a bit of help.  If you are unemployed or on benefits then you may be able to claim free school meals for your child.


This would not only help you: it would help the school too.

Schools are given additional funding by the Government for every child who gets free school meals.  We want to obtain as much as possible so that we can improve education for all pupils.


We are aware there are children who attend The Windmills Junior School who are entitled to free school meals but do not realise it.  The pupil premium means that even if you don't wish to access a free daily hot school meal it is worth you applying if you can as the school is awarded additional money for your child’s education that will be spent directly on their learning if they qualify for free school meals. 


If you think your family could qualify you will need to apply on line via the West Sussex County Council website:
