Our school dinners are excellent value for money, and offer healthy food from a choice of menus which have been devised by LCC nutritionists with children in mind. These healthy meal choices are served throughout the county. School will provide a paper copy of the menu, and we ask that you discuss food choices with your child. Lunch choices are made at registration each morning, and can be requested as and when required. Junior (KS2) school dinners are paid for in advance via Parent Pay. The present cost of a meal is £2.30 per day, £11.50 per week.
Statutory Free School Meals (Pupil Premium)
To check your entitlement, please call the Area Education Office direct on 01524 581207, who will in turn process any claim and notify the school office. Please still register for Pupil Premium even if your child does not have school meals.
Universal Free School Meals
Free school meals are currently available to all infant children. Please still register for Pupil Premium if you think you are entitled.
Packed lunches in school
We request that children bring their packed lunch in a polythene lunch box, clearly named. Drinks or soup should be in an unbreakable flask, sealed polythene container, or cardboard carton. NO CANS OR GLASS BOTTLES please. Fizzy drinks are not permitted.
Sweets and chocolate are not allowed as part of a packed lunch. Please note we are a NUT FREE SCHOOL, which includes spreads like Nutella.
The lunchtime period is well supervised by our Lunchtime Organisers and the Headteacher and/or Deputy, and sensible standards of behaviour are expected of the children at all times. We often have Play Leaders running activities during the lunch period.
Milk is provided each day for all infant children. The milk is subsidised by the EEC and is free for children up until the Friday before their 5th birthday. After your child’s 5th birthday, milk is charged for. For those children receiving statutory free school meals, they will continue enjoying free milk until the end of infants (KS1).
A piece of fruit or veg is provided daily for all infant children, free of charge, under the government National Fruit Scheme. Junior (KS2) children are encouraged to bring a piece of fruit from home to eat at playtime.
Junior (KS2) children can purchase snacks from a Healthy Tuck Shop each morning break. Children can bring their own choice of fruit to school as a healthy snack. Every second Thursday of the month, cook will offer all children in school a 'treat' such as a bacon or sausage sandwich, fruit smoothie or cereal bar. Parents will be notified in advance and what is available.
