NEW AUTUMN MENUS

We have a fantastic cook, Lesley, who produces some delicious meals and we want to make sure lots of children are getting the chance to try them! At £2 per meal (KS2 children only – see below for KS1 children) we think they are excellent value for money. Your child does not have to commit to having a meal every day – just pop into the office in a morning if you need one for your child any day.
Our menus are changed every term and are on a three week rota system – the menus are published every week on the reverse of the newsletter or alternatively call at the office to ask the staff. There is also a salad bar, fruit and yoghurt available every day in addition to the four main choices. Children in Years 1 to 6 choose their meal every morning so we can make sure there is plenty of their choice to go around.
If there is anything you would like to see on the menu – within reason! – then please let the school office know.
Food Information Regulations came into effect on 14th December 2014 – information will be available on all allergens which may be present in the food which we serve. Please ask either Mrs. Fawcett or our cook Lesley if you are at all concerned about anything.
PLEASE NOTE THAT FROM THIS DATE ALL FOOD BROUGHT INTO SCHOOL (eg birthday cake, treats) MUST SHOW A LIST OF ALLERGENS

UNIVERSAL FREE SCHOOL MEALS

Some of you may already be aware that the Government has decided to make free school meals available to ALL children in Key Stage 1 (Reception, Year 1 & Year 2) from September 2014. If your child is currently entitled to free meals, due to the type of benefits you may be receiving, it is VITAL that you continue to claim for these meals. School receives a large amount of funding via Pupil Premium for these children and any loss of income to school would impact hugely on the education we are able to provide. If you are unsure as to what you need to do, then please call at the school office and speak to Mrs. Fawcett.

SCHOOL MILK

Our school milk scheme
Did you know our school has a school milk scheme?
By registering your child for our school milk scheme they will receive a 189ml (third of a pint) carton of semi-skimmed milk every day. This is delivered fresh and chilled to their classroom every day.

“How much does it cost?”
Thanks to government subsidies, school milk is free for all under-fives and is subsided at around £15 a term for children aged five or older.

“Why should I register my child?”
School milk provides your child with essential nutrients such as calcium and protein, for strong, healthy teeth and bones. It is also rehydrating and energy boosting, helping to bridge the long gap between breakfast and lunch so children stay focused.
