All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes are entitled to a daily free school meal under the Government’s universal free school meals programme. Children may be entitled to free school meals if they, their parent or guardian are in receipt of certain benefits. If a child qualifies for free school meals they automatically qualify for Pupil Premium, which is additional financial support paid direct to school to help with other costs such as uniform, trips and learning interventions. Even if your child already receives a free school meal because they are in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 and if you are eligible to do so we would ask you to register for a free school meal, as your child can also access this additional financial support. (Your application is confidential and it will not affect any other benefits you are claiming.) Find out more and apply Meals are provided by Caterlink. Your child gets a choice of meals: a main, a vegetarian, a jacket potato or a sandwich option. They choose what they would like to eat each day in class at registration. ALLERGY INFORMATION: If your child has an allergy or intolerance please ensure school are aware. Packed lunches should be well balanced with a mixture of savoury and sweet, packets of sweets should not be included as part of a packed lunch. As we have a number of children with peanut allergies could I insist that no packed lunches contain nuts, peanut butter sandwiches or Nutella sandwiches. This is a very serious matter! Dinner money should be paid through ParentMail under Accounts /Dinner Topup. Please ensure that you regularly top up this amount so that your child does not go into debit for their lunches.
