School meals meet nutritional standards and are cooked on the premises. All children in the Foundation Stage, Year 1 and Year 2 now receive a hot meal, free of charge, at lunchtime. For other children meals cost of £11.50 per week or £2.30 per day (unless you are eligible for Pupil Premium). The menu rotates after three weeks – copies are available from the School Office.
We also encourage children who have packed lunches to bring healthy options. Healthy eating is integrated into the curriculum and children also enjoy cookery and have an understanding of the importance of a healthy lifestyle.

Healthy School Award
Foxton School has been awarded the Healthy Schools Award for excellently promoting healthy eating throughout the school including Healthy Living Week; Grow, Cook, Eat Initiative; and through Multi-Cultural Week.
The Healthy Schools team will also be using examples of our practice as case studies on their website. One example which is being highlighted on the Healthy Schools website is our Peer Massage.
“The Massage in Schools Programme (MISP) was introduced in the UK in December 2000 and is now being used in schools throughout the country.
The clothed massage is aimed at children between 4-12 years old and is given by the children, to each other. The massage focuses on the back, head, arms and hands and lasts around 10 – 15 minutes. Massages are only given and received with the child’s permission and parental consent is obtained before pupils participate in the programme.
Foxton worked closely with representatives from the anti-bullying team to pilot the scheme within their Reception, Years 1 and 2 classes. Early feedback has been incredibly positive with staff commenting that pupils are calmer and more ready for learning after massage.”
Overall, the Healthy Schools moderators said, “Foxton is a very good example of a healthy school with some excellent examples of best practice.”
