As from 1st September 2021 we will be welcoming Caterlink into our school. Caterlink are specialist caterers for the education sector and will be providing our school meals.
If your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 they are entitled to Universal Free School Meals (UIFSM). This is a government funded initiative offering free school meals to all children in KS1.
If your child is in Reception, Year1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 or Year 6 you can apply for ‘Free School Meals’ it is part of something called ‘Pupil Premium’. As well as providing free school meals, pupil premium provides extra funding of up to £1,350 to your child's school. The school can then use this funding to support your child’s education through extra tuition, teaching staff or after-school activities.
The cost of a school dinner is £2.65 per meal, £13.25 per week. If you do decide that your child should have school dinners then you will be included on the school dinner register for half a term. If you would like to change your child's lunch option then you may do so, but only at the start of the new half term period. Dinner money should be paid in advance online through ParentPay. Please contact the office straight away if you are having any difficulty making your payments online.

You may prefer for your child to bring in a packed lunch, we ask that you ensure the lunch is healthy and balanced with some carbohydrates (bread, rice or pasta), some protein (meat, fish, cheese), some fruit and vegetables and a small snack such as a yoghurt.
As a healthy school, sweets and chocolate (by which we mean anything coated in chocolate) are not allowed as part of a packed lunch.
Due to a high number of life-threatening allergies, please do not send in any products containing nuts such as chocolate spread (which often contains hazelnuts) and cereal bars.
Children have access to water throughout the school day. As part of their lunch they may bring in their own water or milk.
Milkshakes, fizzy drinks and juices are not allowed in school. If children do bring them in, they will be taken by a member of staff and looked after until an adult is able to collect them.
