School dinners are prepared on site by catering staff. The pupils always have a choice of menus including a meat option, a meat Halal option, vegetarian and an alternative option. Pupils that cannot eat certain foods and/or have food allergies are catered for, however the school office must be informed. The meals offer good value for money and encourage healthy eating. Salad and fruit is always available as a choice for the pupils. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to free school dinners. In order to access this provision a form must be completed and returned to the school office. For children in Key Stage 2 (years 2 to 6) lunch money should be paid in advance either termly or weekly and cost £10.00 per week. Families receiving income support are entitled to free meals.
Pupils may bring a packed lunch instead of having a hot meal. Children need to bring their lunch in a clearly marked packed lunch box. They are not allowed to bring fizzy drinks, cans or glass bottles, or sweets. Please encourage your child to bring a healthy range of food in their lunchbox.
Milk and Fruit
The Government provides a piece of fruit each day for pupils from age 3 – 7. Pupils may order school milk which costs approximately £3 per term if their child is less than 5 years of age and £10.50 per term if they are over 5 years of age. If parents/carers claim income support, milk is provided free. All milk should be ordered by contacting Cool Milk at www.coolmilk.com
