School meals of prepared off site by the LA Food Support Service. Our school meals, although not cooked on the premises, are nutritious and good value. All the meals are ordered daily at 9.30am. It is important that if your child is late for any reason, you inform school if your child requires a school meal on that day.
School Food Support operate a till system daily (it is not administered by the school). The children need to bring money into school in a named purse or envelope. During registration the money will be collected and kept securely until lunchtime. After lunch the purses are delivered back to the classroom.
Alternatively, your child can bring a packed lunch, which will be eaten in the school hall. Water is available, but children can bring their own drinks. Please do not send glass bottles, cans or fizzy drinks.
For ALL children in EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2, the government provide Universal Infant School Meals. This means that your child in KS1 can enjoy a school meal at no cost to you. If your child does not like the meal selection for a particular day, they may order a jacket potato instead. Please do encourage your child to take up this free meal.
Families on low incomes can apply for their child to receive Free School Meals. This should be applied for even if your child is in KS1 as it will entitle your child to additonal benefits such as subsidised school trips, subsidised after school clubs, free school uniform, free break milk and targeted support for individual pupils.
To apply for Free School Meals please complete the attached form and return to Leicestershire County Council:
Children in EYFS and KS1 are entitled to a piece of fruit provided by the school at break time. Children in KS2 can purchase a piece of fruit for 15p. Alternatively, you can bring in your own fruit or vegetables.
Water is available throughout the day for all pupils.
Milk is available to all children until their 5th birthday. To claim you need to register your child at www.coolmilk.com. Milk is subsidised after their 5th birthday. Children entitled to Free School Meals can also request free milk for break time.
