We provide school meals freshly cooked on the premises which comprises of a well balanced two course meal. Children have a choice of two main courses or a salad and three desserts. Meals should be paid for either weekly, monthly or termly (in advance). Please book your sessions in advance via ParentPay here.
Free school meals are available for those children whose parents are on Income Support, Income Based Jobseekers Allowance or Child Tax Credit. Application forms are available from the school. Any applications are dealt with in the strictest confidence.
Children may bring a packed lunch to school which will be eaten in the dining room with the other children. If you wish to send a cold drink please ensure that it is in an unbreakable container. Please do not send fizzy drinks. We have a policy to encourage healthy eating, including healthy lunchboxes. To this end the School Nurse runs occasional ‘Healthy Lunchboxes’ sessions.
Milk is available at morning playtime if required. Parents are requested to pay for this via ParentPay on a termly basis. Milk is free for children until the term after they have reached their fifth birthday, and for those who receive a free school meal.
Fruit in School Scheme
The School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme (SFVS) helps your child achieve 5 A Day.
Fruit and vegetables are a good source of the nutrients that children need and form part of a healthy, balanced diet.
All Children in KS1 receive a free piece of fruit or vegetable each school day.
That provides 1 of their 5 A Day portions, and the scheme also helps to increase awareness of the importance of eating fruit and vegetables, encouraging healthy eating habits that can be carried into later life.
Depending on the season, there’s a choice of:
- easy-peel citrus fruits, such as satsumas
All the fruit and vegetables are washed before they’re handed out, which is usually just before the mid-morning break, normally in individual class groups.
