School Dinners – From September 2016
School dinners cost £8.50 per week (£1.70 per day) and are cooked in our own kitchen at school. Payment for school meals should be via ParentPay on or after 1st August 2016. Dinners can be paid for weekly or half-termly. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school meal as part of the Government initiative, ‘Universal Infant Free School Meals’.
Daily menus are displayed on the board in the Dining Hall and parents are welcome to come in and look at this with their child. Menus run on a 3 week cycle – please see menus below:
If you have any concerns or special requirements regarding your child’s diet then please let us know so we can cater for it. Our school cook and her team plan carefully to ensure a healthy, well-balanced diet is provided with plenty of choice for the children.
If you do not wish your child to have a school dinner then he/she may bring a packed lunch.
For safety reasons please do not send hot drinks, fizzy drinks or drinks in glass containers. As children are not allowed to bring sweets to school we ask that you do not include these in packed lunches.
Children in all year groups are able to have one-third of a pint of milk a day. A charge of approximately £10.00 per term is made for this. There is no charge for milk in Reception classes or for children who are eligible for free school meals (ask for details of application procedure at the office).
Children in Reception, Years 1 and 2 are provided with a piece of fruit each day as part of the Government’s healthy eating ‘5 A Day’ strategy. Children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 can either purchase a piece of fruit from school, 20p per piece or bring a piece from home to eat at morning break.
