At the end of each half term we have Good News Assembly where we celebrate school values. This half term we focused on who was resilient. We are proud of how these children face problems head on or never give up or are always positive. Well done Team Southgate https://t.co/17XrS06qTp

Year 1 have read 'Whose Poop is That' as part of their science topic this term. Today they looked at animal poop! Donaldson Class were being scientists and exploring the difference between herbivores, omnivores and carnivores. Some of the children don't look very impressed! https://t.co/G8hJYP3Zw0

This afternoon as part of History, Blackman Class experienced a version of the punishments that Victorian prisoners experienced. They completed the 'Shot Drill' 'The Treadwheel' and 'Silence and isolation'. I think they would prefer time out and being grounded. https://t.co/rQUpxLtoh3

Southgate celebrated World Book Day today. Everyone, at home and at school read 'Rain before Rainbows' by Smriti Halls. This is a perfect book for these difficult times. We all dressed as rainbows or in colourful clothes to celebrate the day. https://t.co/AU9qaXB7GB

'All dressed up and nowhere to go' On the last day of half term Southgate Primary held Glam Day. We thought, as we hadn't had the chance to dress up for a long time, we would don our best clothes and glam up for the day. We all looked fab-u-lous! https://t.co/REswpoutY4

School Meals

A hot school meal will be provided each day.  Meals are free for children in Key Stage 1, Years R to 2 (Universal Free School Meals).  A school meal will have to be purchased for children in Years 3 to 6. 

Menus will be sent out at the beginning of each school term. 

Packed Lunch

School meals 3

If you wish to provide your own packed lunch, please note:

  • No sweets of any kind are allowed at school
  • No fully coated chocolate biscuits
  • No fizzy drinks should be brought into school (no glass bottles or cans)
  • We have several children with severe allergies, therefore the school is a nut free zone.  No products containing nuts should be brought into school; this includes chocolate spreads and Nutella. 

Universal Free School Meals For Early Years and Key Stage 1 Children

Every pupil in reception, year 1 and 2 is eligible for free school meals. In January 2015, new food standards were introduced.  By following these standards, we can be sure that our children will get the nutrition they need across the whole school day.

School meals1

We believe that the school lunchtime is a great opportunity for all our children to sit down together and enjoy their healthy and tasty meal, while developing their social skills.  We therefore hope that all parents will take up this offer of a free school meal for our infant children. Please let the school know if your child has any special dietary needs or allergies or if you want to opt out of this service and provide your own packed lunch for your child.

How to Order Meals For Key Stage 2 Children

All meals must be ordered a full week in advance of the entire week that they are required. So, for example, if a hot meal is required for any day during week commencing 25th June 2012, the order must be placed and pre-paid either on-line by midnight on Sunday 17th June, or alternatively by telephoning the office by 3pm on Friday 15th June.

How to Pay

Hot meals cost £2.30 each which must be pre-paid. Payment can be made by credit or debit card via the company hotline on 0845 6037998 or going on-line using the link below. (minimum order by phone £10.00)

See the 'Menu' below for Frequently Asked Questions and Terms and Conditions.

We have been asked by some of our parents for details of the free school meal entitlement. To help you, we have included an application form which lists the requirements. If you need any further information please either contact the school office or Financial Services (Pupil support) at West Sussex County Council.
