Lunch Arrangements


Canterbury Cross does not have a kitchen on site and this affects our flexibility regarding Lunch Time arrangements.

Children who are school dinners must remain so for a ½ term period. There are forms that must be completed to change dinners otherwise you will continue to be charged.

Parents have the right to take their children home for home dinners. They must be collected promptly at 12.10pm and cannot return to school before 12.45pm. Children who arrive after 1.10pm are recorded late for the afternoon session.

As we are a ‘Healthy School’, children wishing to bring packed lunches must support our Healthy rules: A balanced lunch with no fizzy drinks, crisps, chocolate or sweets.Thursday frenzy allows children to bring a packet of crisps and a sweet treat.
