School Milk and Meals
We feel that school meals are an important part of the school day and help children to socialise appropriately whilst demonstrating etiquette such as using a knife and fork.
Our food is prepared within our school kitchen and provided to the school by Lunchtime Co. These are a new provider and promise locally sourced, nutritionally balanced meals. Please click on this link to see how they surveyed our children and the results. They changed the menu slightly to reflect this:
Each term the choice menu changes and will be uploaded here for your perusal:
We also promote drinking milk in school. Children under 5 are given a carton of milk free each day as are children in receipt of Pupil Premium funding. Parents are also allowed to pay for their children to have milk - just pop into the school office and pick up a form.
We no longer accept any cash payments and operate an on-line payment system called Parent Pay. This is for dinner money, school trips and all other payments. It does not cover payment for After School/Lunchtime Clubs organised by outside agencies, who make their own payment arrangements.
Parent Pay offers you the freedom to make these payments whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – safe in the knowledge that the technology used is of the highest internet security available.
You will be given your own personal log-on details and if you have more than one child at the school or you are already registered with Parent Pay, then the accounts can be merged giving you future access using a single set of log-on details. If you cannot access a computer, arrangements can be made wither at school or you will be issued with a bar code to enable you to make payments at local shops.
Please note that dinners cannot be booked online – only paid for. The dinner register is taken every morning and your child should inform the class teacher whether they require school dinner or packed lunch.
