School Dinner

27 Apr 2019

Children may have a school lunch or bring sandwiches. 
The cost of a school meal is £2.66 per day, £13.30 per week and payment is made through ParentPay.

Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 receive a free school meal through the Government Universal Infant Free School Meals programme.

Our school meals follow a healthy-eating policy.

Our meals are produced freshly every day in a school kitchen from only:

  • fresh meat and poultry sourced from the region;
  • fruit and vegetables sourced regionally where possible using local suppliers;
  • products free from additives associated with health problems in young children;
  • fats free from hydrogenated oils;
  • with​ menus that are nutritionally balanced.

Packed Lunches

Our cooked meals are made in our brand new kitchen in the Village Hall, they provide a healthy balanced meal for the children. For more information about our school meals provider (NYCC County Caterers) click here
 
Some families prefer their child to have a packed lunch so we try to help you plan a fantastic lunch box which your child will enjoy and is healthy, fizzy drinks, sweets and chocolate bars are not allowed.


Please be aware that our school is a 'nut free' school and please refrain from bringing any products containing nuts onto the premises.  Thank you for your support with this.

Here are some good websites that give good advice on what to put in a healthy lunchbox:

To apply for free school meals please go
 https://www.northyorks.gov.uk/free-school-meals. 

Applications are usually processed within five working days. You will be notified in writing, either by post or email, if your child is entitled and we will also let the school know. You should continue to pay until confirmation comes through. Schools may be able to arrange reimbursement of payment made while your entitlement is being confirmed.

Free school meals claims cannot be backdated. They are awarded from the date we receive the application, once eligibility is confirmed. This is because there is a legal requirement for a request to be made, before a free school meal can be provided.

If you are not entitled to free school meals, you will be notified in writing.
