School Meals

From Monday 5th October (Week Two on the attached menu) we are delighted to be able to offer a hot school dinner. Children will be able to choose from the main menu, jacket potato or a sandwich option each morning as the register is taken. (Grab bags will no longer be available). Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a Universal Infant Free School meal, a subsidy from the Government. Children in Years 3-6 the daily charge is £2.60 and nursery children cost is £1.80. 

COVID-19 from September 2020 Grab Bag sandwich meal options of cheese, ham or tuna will continue to be available in September.  We are unable to offer hot meals at the moment as all meals are served in the classrooms in order to keep groups apart. 

Children are alternatively able to bring their own packed lunch.  Parents are requested to ensure that their child can open all packaging in their lunch as staff are unable to help children due to safety measures.  Some food may need repackaging before adding it to their lunchboxes. 

School meals are cooked fresh every day in our newly built onsite kitchen by our lovely cooks, Mrs Fiona Blackmore and Mrs Beccy Haswell. Children can choose from a hot meal, jacket potato or sandwich option. Children are able to select their choice each morning as the register is taken. There is a menu produced at the start of each term which operates on a three weekly cycle. In the summer half term there is the option of a 'grab bag' to the lunch options. This will consist of a cheese, tuna or ham sandwich, a piece of baking i.e. flapjack, sultanas and raisins and veg sticks. Children will be asked in the morning whether they would like a main option, jacket potato or a sandwich option (in the summer term a grab bag).

Children are welcome to bring a packed lunch from home if they prefer. We ask that children do not have nuts in their packed lunches as we have children in school with nut allergies. Please comply with this request so we can keep our children safe. We hold Healthy Schools status and encourage children to make healthy food choices. Can we please request that grapes/olives etc are cut in half lengthways to minimize a choking risk. 

Children from Nursery and Reception will eat their lunch together in the school dining hall with children from Class 2 and 3 from 11:45 - 12:15. Children from Class 4 and 5 will eat their lunch from 12:15 - 12:45pm.
