Lunchtime

Hot meals are available to order from www.mealselector.co.uk

 

Those children not having a school meal should bring in a packed lunch. These should be nutritionally healthy with a balance of protein, fruit and fibre. Insulated flasks are allowed to keep food warm but not those with a glass vacuum lining. There should be no sweets, nuts or chocolate bars and no fizzy drinks (no glass bottles or cans please). We also recommend that children shouldn’t be eating crisps everyday as these have high levels of salt.

Due to food allergies with nuts please ensure that your child does not have any nut products in school, so no spreads, or healthy biscuits with nuts in them.

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (please request an application form if you think you are eligible)

Even if your child does not want to eat a hot school meal it is worth you applying, if you can,  as the school is awarded additional money for your child’s education that will be spent directly on their learning if they qualify for FSM.
