Ainthorpe Primary School

Ainthorpe Primary School is a happy place for children to learn and make friends.


We are committed to promoting healthy habits in our children and are proud to have gained the Positive Health in Schools Award.

We encourage the children to eat healthy food, maintain high levels of hygiene and wear clothes suitable to conditions or climate, e.g sensible shoes in school and sun hats in summer.

Breakfast Club

This operates from 7.30 am to 8.40 am at a cost of only £2.50 per day.

This needs to be booked and paid for in advance via My Child at School. Children attending are given a breakfast of toast, cereal and fruit juice. The club is run by members of staff at the school.

Please note children cannot turn up in the morning due to staffing ratios and need to be booked in advance.


Our lunchtime is from 12.00 – 12.45 pm for Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 and 12.30 - 1:15 for Key Stage 2.

If you wish your child to stay for lunch at school they may have either a cooked school dinner or bring a packed lunch. Cooked meals are made up of a main course and pudding. Pupils in the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 are entitled to a free lunch, and children in Key Stage 2 pay £2.53 per day (booked and paid for via School Grid).

If you are in receipt of certain benefits you may be able to apply for free school meals for your child.  Even if your child does not want to eat a school meal it may be worth applying in case your child would like a meal in the future or for example a Christmas meal. Forms are available from the school office.

Those children who prefer to bring a packed lunch need something they can manage as independently as possible, including a drink (not fizzy or energy drinks) in an unbreakable container. It would be helpful if you could put your child’s packed lunch into a named lunch-box and not a bag.

If you would prefer your child to take lunch at home they should return to the school five minutes before the start of the afternoon session.


During the day Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 children are offered a free piece of fruit.

Our youngest children are also offered a drink of milk.  We encourage children to bring a water bottle into class.
