The School Food Standards
With effect from January 2015, new government legislation came into force regulating all food consumed in schools including Breakfast Clubs, School Lunches, After School Clubs and Packed Lunches brought from home. All our menus have been revised to meet the regulations and advice was given via our weekly newsletter regarding what may be sent in packed lunches, in order for you to support us to meet the School Food Standards.
In addition to the above, Low Fat Milk must be available for drinking at least once a day during school hours, plus one or more Portions of Fruit everyday. In view of this, milk and fruit are available free of charge for all Nursery, Reception and children receiving Pupil Premium (the old Free School Meals). Milk is also available at a cost of 30p per day (£1.50 per week) to all children in Year 1 to Year 6. This may be paid for termly via ParentPay. A piece of complimentary fruit is also available to children taking up the offer of our milk package in KS2 (KS1 already receive free fruit). Unfortunately, we are unable to give credit for any missed days.
If you think your child may be entitled to Free School Meals (Pupil Premium) and, therefore, receive free school meals, milk, fruit and assistance with uniform please contact the Benefits Office on 0845 245 8000.
