School Lunches

A copy of the school lunch menu for the Spring Term is now available. Hard copies will also be sent home in book bags in the first week of term.

Please click here for the Summer 2017 menu  

 

Just a reminder that under the Government's Universal Infant Free School meals initiative all school lunches in our school are free. We would strongly request you to encourage your children to take advantage of this.

The ethos behind the Government initiative comes from The School Food Plan which presented evidence that "universal free school meals leads to positive improvements in health, attainment and social interaction as well as helping families with the cost of living".

The process for ordering remains the same. Each morning any child who does not bring in a home packed lunch will be asked to make a choice of the hot lunch for that day in the classroom. This will then be passed on to the kitchen.

Free School Meals/Pupil Premium

Even though every child in an infant school will now get a free school meal, our school could receive additional funding to help support your child's education if your annual income is less than £16,190 and you receive certain benefits.

The government pays schools a Pupil Premium for each child eligible. This could be used for additional support in your child's classroom, or help with school trips or uniform purchase.
