If the current crisis has meant that you are now having to claim universal credit you may be able to get extra help through the benefits related Free School Meals system. The following information will help you to see if you are eligible to apply. If your application is successful, please email the school at email@example.com if you would like to be included in the government scheme to provide weekly supermarket vouchers to those eligible for Free School Meals. We can include you as soon as we have received confirmation from your local authority.
If you think you may be eligible for Free School Meals for any other reason and have not previously applied, you can make your application in the same way.
PLEASE NOTE, DUE TO THE ARRANGEMENTS IN PLACE FOR BUBBLES FROM SEPTEMBER 2020, THE THREE WEEK LUNCH ROTA HAS BEEN SUSPENDED AND HAS BEEN REPLACED BY A SCHOOL PACKED LUNCH OPTION WHICH PUPILS CAN EAT AT THEIR DESK. PLEASE SEE Parents | September 2020 Reopening Information SECTION OF THE SCHOOL WEBSITE AND www.parentpay.com FOR DETAILS AND BOOKING.
We offer a three weekly menu schedule which repeats until a new menu is published (normally twice a year). Use the menu form above to make a menu choice for each day you want to order school meals (you can also get the menu sheets from the office). It is fine to mix school meals and packed lunches so long as you know which days you choose packed lunch and which lunches, and that you keep to your pattern. You need to give notice on the previous Thursday if you want to change from packed lunch to school lunches or vice versa.
PAYING FOR SCHOOL LUNCHES
All infant pupils (Reception class, Year 1 and Year 2) receive free school meals. For junior classes, we are a cashless school and payment for school meals should be made in advance via ParentPay (www.parentpay.com). If you need to pay using cash at a PayPoint, please see Mrs Hart in the school office.
Our school lunches meet the government's standards for healthy eating with a vegetarian choice every day. We hope your children enjoy their lunches. Bon appetit!
