School Meals

Olive Dining are our wonderful catering providers led by Aga our Head Chef who freshly prepares all our school and event meals in Tetherdown's school kitchen using locally sourced ingredients.

We feel strongly about educating the younger generation on healthy eating by providing fresh and wholesome food, as it's through a balanced diet and healthy food choices that children can maintain higher classroom concentration levels.

If your child is in receipt of the Free School Meals Grant (FSM) your meal cost will continue to be covered by the Department of Education. For further details please refer to our Free School Meals pages.

Breaktime Healthy Treats 

Children in Reception, Years 1 & 2 will be offered a piece of fruit, usually at morning break, as part of the National Fruit Scheme. The children in Year 3 to 6 are allowed to bring in a piece of fruit for their mid-morning snack.  Sweets, chewing gum and crisps are not allowed. Please remember that we are a no nuts school.

Birthdays and Treats

For special occasions such as birthdays, we welcome book donations for the school library for all the children to enjoy versus a sweet treat as we are a healthy eating school. Your child's name will be printed on a name plate at the front of the book to mark this occasion and your donation.
