At Alford Primary School we believe children should have enjoyable, healthy lunchtimes. Our lunchtime staff are working closely with our School Council to provide a lunchtime when children eat healthily, have valuable social time with their peers, receive quality interaction with adults and have time to be active outdoors.
From September 2015 as part of any Ofsted inspection, the provision of food in school will be a focus. There are already rigorous standards, which have to be met regarding hot school meals and we are now expected to make sure that all food the children eat in school is well balanced nutritionally.

We are extremely proud of our Enhanced Healthy School status. This reflects our commitment to making sure children lead healthy lifestyles: keeping fit and active and eating healthy.
Mrs Lou Woodhall and our school Healthy Helpers pupil group want to share their favourite meal time recipe and lunch time boxes with you. Please print off these recipes to make a recipe book.
Allergy and intolerance
On the 13th December 2014 a new legislation called Food for Consumers Regulations (EU FIC) came into force. This legislation affects all businesses who serve or sell food. As JSTC provide our canteen services, they will be publishing their own Allergen Documentation which will be available to read from here as soon as its published.
Further information about the EU FIC can be found on the Food Standards Agency website.
