Morning Break

Foundation and Key Stage 1 children are all offered a piece of fresh fruit or vegetable every day as part of the governments Free Fruit and Vegetable scheme. Please inform us of any allergies to fruit or vegetables that your child may have. Children may bring fruit or healthy eating type snacks to eat during this time. Crisps, biscuits, chocolate bars etc. are not permitted for the morning break and sweets or chewing gum must not be brought to school. We encourage children to be ‘healthy eaters’ and seek parents’ support with this. Children may bring a cold drink (not fizzy).

Foundation age children are offered free school milk daily.

School Meals

School meals are prepared in our kitchen and served in the hall. Children have a choice of menu both with main meal and pudding. A drink is also provided.
Dinner money must be paid in advance by parents using the School Money online payments system which can be accessed by clicking the link below.
Free School Meals are supplied to children whose parents are in receipt of certain benefits. If you feel your child may be entitled to a free meal please ask at the school office. All children in Foundation and years 1 and 2 will also be entitled to free school meals.
Children may bring a packed lunch for their mid – day break if parents prefer. All containers for food / drinks must be ‘non – breakable’ and clearly named. Children can choose the type of meal they have on a daily basis.

IMPORTANT: A proportion of our annual school funding and pupil premium funding is based on the number of pupils entitled to free school meals. This makes a huge difference to our school's total funding. It is therefore in the school’s interest that those who are eligible apply for these meals even though these meals might not be taken up. Please contact the school office for more information.
