The Governors awarded the contract for the provision of School Meals to Mellors Catering. We wished to secure a better standard of meal for both pupils and staff. The catering contract provides the pupils and staff with appetising healthy food at affordable prices.
Children have two choices of a hot meal with an additional jacket potato option, they can then add freshly prepared salad to their meal or they may bring a packed lunch from home.
Notice, in writing, of ONE FULL WEEK is required for any child transferring to a packed lunch or on to School Meals.
The cost of a school meal is £2.25 per day (£11.25 per week). Meals are provided free of charge to pupils in Reception (Foundation Stage 2) Year 1 and Year 2. Payments for other children must be made through ‘Parent Pay, please contact Reception for details of how to access your families secure account.
If you receive Income Support you may be entitled to free meals for your child. Please contact the Local Authority (Tel: 01642 774 774) or the school office to collect an application form. Children receiving a free meal cannot be distinguished from other children during service. Menus can be found on our website and in the dining hall.
School meals are in accordance with Government Guidelines on Healthy Eating, You are welcome to visit to look at our service at any time, please telephone School to arrange your visit.
Children bringing a packed lunch (no hot food/liquids) must do so in an appropriate container, bring a straw or a plastic beaker for their drink (which must be water, pure fruit juice, milk or yoghurt and must not be a tin or in a glass container) and bring a spoon if a dessert is included. All packaging and uneaten food will be taken home. Sweets/chocolates and fizzy drinks are not allowed at lunch or any other time. Children taking a school meal are given priority over children taking a packed lunch when seats become free in the Hall. Due to the limited space we have available children will be seated according to their choice of school meal or packed lunch.
Healthy eating is promoted in our school, with free fruit each morning for KS1 children and to buy for KS2 children.
We have up to 12 Supervisory Assistants to care for the children over the lunch break.
