Food and Drink

Food and Drink throughout the day.

We provide free fruit daily to the Infants and Reception children as part of the national government scheme. Toast is available for Junior children on a Monday and Tuesday breaktime. We ask that no child brings in more than 10p per day as only one slice of toast per child is permitted. Fruit snacks are also available for purchase by Junior children every breaktime. Junior children may bring a piece of fruit to school for their mid morning break.

Provision of free school milk to children in this authority stops at the age of five.  However, the school belongs to a scheme which allows you to purchase milk for your child from a local dairy at an extremely reasonable cost for children over five. Details of this scheme are available from the school office or can be obtained by phoning School Milk Services on 01934 510950.

For those children who do not have milk, water is always available. We have water fountains inside and outside the building. In the Infants, beakers are provided in the classes for the children to have a drink of water if they wish. In the Juniors the children can refill their water bottles during the day at appropriate times. They are provided with the first bottle free of charge. Replacement bottles may be bought from the office at a cost of 35p per bottle.

Free School Meals

Please contact the school office if you think your child may be eligible for free school meals. We would ask all parents eligible for Free School Meals to apply for them, even if you are not going to take this option up, as it entitles the school to more funding for pupil support. The admin staff will be able to help you complete the appropriate form.

FREE SCHOOL MEALS – HOW TO APPLY

Parents and carers can now apply for free school meals online via the Citizen Portal, using the link below. Your eligibility will be checked online, and the portal will let you know whether your child is eligible for free school meals. If your child is eligible you will receive a confirmation message, and the school will be notified directly. If you are not eligible you will be presented with a message stating this.

Please note, if you have already completed a primary or secondary school place application for the 2017/18 academic year via the portal, you do not need to re‑register when applying for free school meals. Please use the login details that you have already set up.
