Children have the option to have a school dinner or a packed lunch. School meals are cooked on the premises and are available at the cost of £2.30, unless you are eligible for free school meals. Payments must be made online in advance.
Children bringing packed lunch may bring a non-fizzy drink, in a suitable water-tight container (not glass).
Please see below a recent copy of our school menu. If children would like to order a jacket potato instead then please let Mandy in the kitchen know at the very start of the day (before registration)
All children under the age of 5 are entitled to free milk. This is given out in a tetra pak container.
Under the school fruit and vegetable scheme, infant children are entitled to a free piece of fruit. Additionally, children can choose to purchase (25p) some fruit tuck from the school kitchen during morning break.
Free School Meals
The term ‘free school meals’ is more than just providing a free lunch for families in receipt of certain benefits. The Government now gives a ‘Pupil Premium’ which is money to schools to help children from lower income families. This money is used to support a wide range of additional help which goes way beyond a free lunch. Please click this link for further details on how to apply.
Water in Class
Research shows that even small amounts of dehydration can affect concentration and performance. We therefore encourage children to bring a leak-free water bottle into class from which they can get a drink if feeling thirsty. Please ensure bottles show the child’s name.
