Fruit for Morning Break
Most children (and adults) cannot last the morning without a snack. All Year R-2 children receive free fresh fruit daily, for a mid-morning snack, and children in Key Stage 2 are welcome to bring a fruit snack from home.
Children are not allowed crisps, chocolate or sweets at breaktimes.
Many parents opt to buy milk through the “Cool Milk” scheme – details of how to apply on- line can be obtained at the office.
Children can have either school meals or packed lunches from home. School meals are freshly cooked on site by Caterlink and currently cost £2.05 per meal (£10.25 per week). There is always a vegetarian option and filled jacket potatoes, as well as salad choices and fruit as an alternative to the dessert. The termly menu is available here, and printed copies can be picked up from the school foyer.
Payment must be made in advance on the first day of the school week in an envelope please, marked with you child’s name, class and ‘Lunch’. Many parents now pay for half a term in advance. Cheques for meals should be made out to ‘Caterlink’. If a child is absent and misses a pre-paid meal, the cost is credited to the following week or half term.
Families may be eligible for free school meals , please contact the office for a form or contact our Family Liaison Officer, Caroline Soutan, in the office for free advice and support.
Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM)
From September 2014 all pupils in reception, year 1 and year 2 in state-funded schools in England are offered a free school meal (UIFSM). This includes academies, free schools, pupil referral units and alternative provision as well as maintained schools.
If your child is eligible for Free School Meals, even if they qualify for Universal Infant Free School Meals, please still register for Free School Meals as the school will benefit from additional funding.
