SNACKS AND LUNCH
Children in Reception and Years 1-4 can choose to have either a cooked school meal or a packed lunch provided by you.
Ducklings and Penguins all have a cooked school meal if they choose to stay for lunch. Children in Reception and Years 1/2 are entitled to a free school meal. If you choose a cooked lunch in Years 3 and 4, you pay our school meal provider, AIP direct.
Children may bring a cold drink to have with their packed lunch and these should be brought in unbreakable plastic, leak-proof containers.
Our new school meals service provider is AIP. They use an online food ordering and payment system called School Food United. The price per meal from 1st April is £2.33. This service is available to all pupils, including Years R, 1 & 2 ‘Universal Infant Free School Meals’, and Years 3 & 4 paid and ‘Free School Meal’ entitled pupils. This will ensure all children receive their favourite food choice. It is available on all mobile phones, desk-tops, laptops and tablets. All school meal payments will be paid to AIP directly via the School Food United portal by uploading payments. Nursery lunches will still be paid for as part of the lunchtime session charge that you pay to school, although you will be able to order your child’s meal through School Food United portal. It is important to register and then to order your child’s school meals.
Please see documents below which detail how to register for school meals for the first time. Additionally, if your child has any special dietary needs or allergies you will need to read and complete the pro forma.
School Lunch Menus
At morning break the children in Year 3 and 4 may bring a piece of fruit or raw vegetable to have in the playground. We are part of the Healthy Schools Initiative and encourage healthy snacks. Children in Nursery class, Reception, Year One and Year Two are provided with a piece of fruit each day from school as part of the Government-funded School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme.
You can purchase a school water bottle from either school office. We ask that you only fill the water bottle with plain water please.
