School Meals

 

School Meals

School lunches are provided each day by our school meals service.  The children are provided with a healthy variety of food freshly prepared on the premises.  The meals will cost £1.80 per day (this price is a promotion currently being run by the Council and may increase in the future) and payment must be made on Mondays for the following week, or alternatively on a half-termly basis.  As of September 2014, the government are funding meals for children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, known as Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM).  Therefore, the cost to parents of children in these classes is free.  If you require further information about school meals, please contact the school office.  Alternatively, if you choose for your child not to have a cooked school lunch, you may send a packed lunch in a clearly named bag/lunch box each day.

 

Some children may wish to bring a snack for morning breaks.  Our school has 'Healthy Schools Accreditation' and we actively encourage healthy eating habits.  Sweets, chocolates, crisps and fizzy drinks are discouraged.  As part of a government initiative free fruit is provided for all Foundation Stage and KS1 children.
