To help with office systems and to maintain financial security, dinner money should be brought for the week on Monday mornings and sent into class with your child. This should be in a sealed envelope with your child’s name on it. We would like children to remain on dinners or sandwiches for at least half a term at a time and not to change from one to the other day by day. KS1 children are given a free school meal every day but you should still apply for free school meals if you think you may be eligible. This is because this will give your child access to additional funding in school, which will further support their learning and progress. Forms for free school meals are available from the school office. We operate a choice system which has a 3 week menu cycle. These will be sent home to you twice a year when the menus change and each day your child can choose their meal in advance. This ensures that they are not disappointed with the meal they have. If your child has a packed lunch please don’t send fizzy pop or glass bottles with this. Please also try to ensure that your child’s lunch box is balanced and healthy. We may contact you if we have any worries about this.
*Please note that despite the dates the attached menu is correct.
Snacks and drinks
Free fruit and healthy snacks are provided to children in EYFS and KS1. Chewing gum is not allowed in school at all. Drinking water is freely available around school. Please send your child to school with a named plastic bottle which they can refill as needed. This must only contain water.
