At morning break we would like all children to eat fruit as part of our Healthy Schools initiative. The fruit can be fresh or dried. We include Healthy cereal bars in this category. We are part of the National Fruit for schools initiative so KS1 children (YR, 1, 2) get a free piece of fruit at school. Milk is also available if ordered, at a small charge. This may be paid for termly.
(Children may have free milk until the term in which they are 5, but again it must be ordered). Our milk supplier is Cool Milk. If your child no longer wishes to have milk or wishes to begin during the term we require a week’s notice. Water from the drinking fountain and filter machine is available throughout the day. Water bottles are available from the school office for £1.50. These need to be brought home at the end of the week for a good wash!
Hot meals can be ordered up to 4 weeks in advance and until 8am on the morning of the meal. They cost £2.30 per day. You will receive a parent login to provide access to the website dinnerpay.co.uk. If your child is ill or on a school trip you must contact the catering company Baileys direct on 01527 857130 or change your order online to cancel the lunch. All enquiries or questions should be directed to the catering company.
