Children may have a school meal or bring a packed lunch.
If your child has a school dinner it will cost £2.10 (£2.20 for years 5/6) per day, £10.50 (years 5/6 £11) per week. Dinners must be paid for in advance of taking a meal.
Please send the correct amount in a sealed envelope labelled with your child’s name and class. All money should be sent to the school office on Monday morning. (Cheques can be handed in an envelope to the class teacher.)
Children may bring a packed lunch but we do ask that you put the complete lunch, including a drink, into one container, which is clearly labelled with your child’s name and class. These are taken to the dining hall where they can be kept in hygienic conditions.
Fizzy drink and drinks in glass containers or breakable flasks are not allowed for obvious reasons.
Children may bring fruit or a packet of raisins to eat at first play. We are a health promoting school and we ask that you do not send crisps, sweets, chocolate or nuts (because of allergies) for morning break.
Treats for Special Occasions
In our commitment to promoting a healthy diet and attitude towards food, we have phased out the giving of sweets for birthdays and special occasions. If parents feel strongly and still wish to provide a sweet treat on their child’s birthday we would ask that the parent brings the sweets at the end of the school day and gives the treats out with their child on the school playground as the children leave their teacher. No cakes will be given out.
As we recognise that very occasionally a small treat is acceptable your child’s class teacher may choose to provide a sweet or chocolate treat at certain times of the year, for example Christmas or Easter.
Free School Meals
Free meals are available to children whose parents receive the relevant benefits. This is your right so please do not feel embarrassed to claim it. Please contact someone in the school office for further details. All information is kept strictly confidential.
