The school has a healthy eating policy. Your child can bring fruit in for a mid-morning snack. The school is a member of the ‘Fruit for Schools’ scheme whereby each KS1 child receives a piece of fresh fruit or vegetables. This is in addition to that brought from home. In KS1 milk can be bought on a daily basis. Please ask your class teacher for details.

In KS2 snacks are available for purchase from the Healthy Snack bar.

The school meal service always provides a choice of hot main course or salad selection. A copy of the weekly menu is available by following the links on this web page, but is also posted on the display board opposite the pod and on the pupil board outside the KS2 hall. All diets can be catered for and great care is taken by the kitchen staff in providing well-balanced, nutritious food. If your child is not eating their meals the Mealtime Assistant will let the teacher know. Children will be encouraged to eat their dinner; however, staff will not insist that children eat food they do not want.  If your child does not finish their lunch the remains will stay in the lunch box so that parent and carers can monitor what the child has eaten.

Please note that we have a no nuts or seeds policy as we may have children and staff in school with severe allergies.parent-pay

School meals are charged at £2.40 per meal.  Meals should be ordered and paid for via Parent Pay by the Thursday for the following week.

Free School Meals

From September 2014, a universal free school meal initiative came into force entitling all children in Reception to Year Two to a free school meal.

Existing entitlements to free school meals for identified pupils in nursery classes and at key stages 2-4 will continue, based on the existing free school meals eligibility criteria for those groups of pupils. In England, children at key stages 2-4 in state-funded schools are entitled to receive FSM if their parents or carers are in receipt of any of the following benefits:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided they are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190, as assessed by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs)
  • During the initial roll out of the benefit, Universal Credit

If you have recently become unemployed but are still receiving Working Tax Credits, you may be entitled to Free School Meals for a four week period only, please call 0845 155 1019 for advice.

If you feel you are eligible to register please see Anne White for further details. The school receives vital funding for every child eligible and registered, even if they choose not to have school meals. All enquiries are dealt with in the strictest confidence.
