School Dinners

2016-17 - School Dinner Menu.pdf

School dinners cost £8.25 per week (£1.65 per day) and are cooked in our own kitchen at school. Money should be brought to school in a named envelope. 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’.

Menus are sent out on a termly basis. Children are able to mix and match packed lunches and school dinners e.g packed lunch Mon, Tues, dinners Weds, Thurs, Fri.

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.

Packed Lunch

If you do not wish your child to have a school dinner then he/she may bring a packed lunch. We also sell a packed lunch as an alternative to a hot dinner, (£1.65 per day). Please ask for details.

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.

School Milk

Children in all year groups are able to have one-third of a pint of milk a day. A charge (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).

Fruit

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.
