It is important to ensure your child has a balanced and nutritious diet to provide them with the nutrients they need to learn and play during the school day. By encouraging your child to eat a healthy diet they will have more energy, which will improve concentration in class and enable better performance at sports and play.
The Fuel Zone continually works with pupils and teachers to develop the service and ensure that it offers a varied and healthy menu that tastes delicious too. These are some good reasons why you should encourage your child to eat in the school’s Fuel Zone.
Fuel Zone Breakfast Service
Breakfast is often referred to as the most important meal of the day and children who have breakfast are often more calm, alert and ready to learn. Antonine Primary School provides a breakfast service available to all pupils every weekday morning from 8am - 8.45am. Not only does this service allow children to have a nutritious healthy breakfast before the start of the school day, it also allows them to meet up with friends and make new friends. For those not currently entitled to a free school meal, there is a £2 charge for breakfast for the first child and subsequent children pay £1 (e.g. a parent with two children attending breakfast club would pay £3). Parents are able to pre-purchase breakfast. Children at breakfast club go into the playground at 8.45am where there is a staff member on duty to ensure the children stay within the school grounds.
Fuel Zone Lunch Service
All Glasgow school pupils in primaries one, two and three can enjoy a nutritious free meal every day at lunchtime in the Fuel Zone. There are no forms to fill in; pupils simply turn up each day to enjoy a delicious lunch.
Children in Primaries 3 – 7 pay £1.90 for lunch, unless their family is entitled to free school meals welfare benefit (see below for more information).
A selection of healthy options are on offer to make up a three course meal with milk or water. Pupils can select a main meal, drink and a dessert, and choose as much fruit, vegetables, soup and bread as they like. Vegetarian and Halal diets are also catered for where required.
The lunchtime menu in the Fuel Zone rotates on a three weekly basis to give children variety. Visit the Fuel Zone website if you need to check which week we are on for school lunches and for further information on Glasgow Schools Food Policy.
We would encourage all parents to take advantage of free school meals. This ensures your child enjoys a nutritious lunch every day while also saving you around £23 each month (compared with packed lunches).
If you would like further information about the Fuelzone service please contact the head teacher or Cordia Catering Manager, Elaine Flanagan on 0141 944 6923
A reminder that children and adults should not bring nuts and food containing nuts to school. We have a pupil with a peanut allergy who may suffer an anaphylactic reaction if he/she eats, or comes into contact with nuts or products containing nuts. Please check the labels on food items brought into school.
If your child has any medical dietary requirements please contact your catering manager who will be happy to help. Please refer to the Medically Referred Diet leaflet for more information.
Free Meal Entitlement
If your child is eligible to a free meal entitlement, they will receive a meal allowance of £1.90 each day entitling them to a Fuel Zone Lunch and drink. We do hope that your child will make use of their entitlement. Application forms for Clothing Grants and Free School Meals may be obtained from the school office or online at www.glasgow.gov.uk
Under the Refresh Initiative the school has two mains fed water coolers situated on the ground and first floors for use by children and staff. Pupils are permitted to drink plain water during class time and breaks. Parents should provide their child with a reusable water bottle, which can be kept in school or taken home each evening. Better hydration means better performance in school and water offers an alternative to unhealthy sugary drinks.
- Helps children stay healthy
- Improves co-ordination
- Reduces tiredness
Playtime Snacks and Drinks
Please ensure your child brings healthy snacks to school – no sweets/candy/lollipops or snacks with high levels of sugar, fat or salt.
Children should only bring to school one healthy playtime snack. If two snacks are required, then at least one should be a piece of fruit.
A bottle of flat juice (including fruit juice, diluting juice and flavoured water) can be brought in for playtime or lunch. (Only water can be drunk in class).
Pupils are not permitted to bring fizzy and sports drinks to school.
