From September 2023 all children in primary schools will have the opportunity to have a free healthy school lunch provided through the Universal Free School Meal scheme. Children do have the option of bring their own packed lunches, but we do cater for all dietary needs.
Please provide your child with healthy options and a balanced selection of food, e.g. fruits and vegetables and water. Sweets, crisps and drinks are not permitted in packed lunches. Water is available for all children.
Milk is provided free for the children under five years. Fruit is provided up to Year 2 as a mid-morning snack. Older children may bring a piece of fruit for break.
If your child is over five you can pay for milk to be supplied daily. Please register at https://customers.coolmilk.com/v2/register/
Applying for Free School Meals
Free Academy meals are available to those families in receipt of Child Tax Credit, Job Seekers’ Allowance or Income Support. Please complete the online checker sent out via Parentmail each term or contact the school office.
Our school provides a milk scheme that is available to all of our pupils. School milk is free for all under-fives and is subsidised for pupils aged five or older at a cost of 22p per 189ml portion.
Each pupil that registers with Cool Milk will receive a carton of semi-skimmed milk everyday, which is delivered fresh and chilled to the classroom. Their school milk will not only provide them with essential nutrients, but as it is rehydrating and energy boosting it also bridges the gap between breakfast and lunch to help children stay focused.
