School Dinner Money Payment, Arrangements and Arrears
PLEASE NOTE from January 2020 -
If you think you may be entitled to receive free school meals please contact the School Office.
Thank you to those families who pay regularly and promptly, it is very much appreciated.
School Meal Arrangements
At lunchtime the children have the option of taking a school meal, bringing a packed lunch from home or going home. All children eat in our dining room.
Every infant child is currently entitled to a free school meal. All our meals are prepared and cooked in our newly refurbished kitchen and the menu, which operates on a three week rotation, includes a main meal, vegetarian options, sandwiches, paninis, salads and baked potatoes with various fillings. The children are able to choose (with a little help) a healthy meal each day. We also cater for religious dietary requirements, if needed.
When children move into the Junior Department (Year 3), dinner money, preferably the correct amount, should be brought on a Monday, in a named envelope and given to the class teacher or left at the school office. Prompt payment is appreciated. We will always give credits for any meals that are missed due to absence, sending arrears notes for late or missed payments.
Important – Free School Meals
If you are on a low income your child may be entitled to Free School Meals. Forms are available from the office and we can help you fill them in. Even if you don’t want a school dinner it is important to claim your entitlement because the school receives extra money called the Pupil Premium each year towards your child’s education! So please claim if you can!
