Wetherby promotes healthy eating, however, as the school only provides one meal we offer three of the ‘5-a-day’ programme – two vegetables and a piece of fruit. Meat and vegetables used by the catering staff in food preparation are sourced from local suppliers wherever possible. The catering department issues a menu at the start of each term and a weekly menu is displayed outside the dining room. Themed lunches are often introduced such as food from around the world.
Lunchtimes are on a rolling lunch basis with the younger boys eating first.
- 12.00pm – 1.00pm Reception
- 12:00pm – 12.30pm Year 1 and two Year 2 classes
- 12:45 – 1.15pm Two Year 2 classes and Year 3
Milk and Snack
A snack of fresh fruit is provided for all boys every morning. A drink of milk is also available for each child who would like it. The boys in Lower School (Reception and Year 1) will also have a snack in the afternoon. No snacks will need to be provided by parents unless your son is attending an after school club.
Drinking plenty of water enhances learning. Boys may bring in water bottles to keep on their desks so they can drink water whenever they wish. Water bottles can be purchased from the school office. We also have water fountains on each floor level for the boys to drink from and fill up their water bottles.
The Brookwood Partnership provides all of our food at Wetherby School.
