School Lunches

Healthy school meals are prepared on the premises. Children may bring packed lunches, which must be in clearly marked boxes. 

From September 2014 all pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will be able to receive a school meal at no cost to the parent/guardian.

School meals are healthy, tasty, social and fun and from September 2014 choosing a school lunch for your child/children will help save you up to £400 per year if you take up the offer. In North Yorkshire we anticipate that this will be a popular offer with children and guardians. To help us plan and ensure we are able to deliver a high quality school meal to every eligible child please complete the form and return to school as soon as possible.

All school meals are prepared to a very high standard. A freshly prepared two course meal will be offered every day with meat and vegetarian options available. All food served in school will be nutritionally balanced based on the government’s nutritional guidelines to ensure that children can work better in the afternoons.

Children who have a dietary requirement may also be catered for including religious, cultural or allergy and/or intolerance diets. Please contact school if your child requires a special diet or ask to speak to the school cook directly.

Infant children can still bring a packed lunch but we would encourage them to try a school lunch. This will give them a varied and balanced diet and save you time and money. 

Any Junior parents who think they may be entitled to free school meals are encouraged to contact the school office where these enquiries will be dealt with in confidence. 

In order to help with the administration and ordering, parents must inform School in writing, giving two full weeks’ notice, if a child is to change their lunchtime arrangements. 

School meals cost £10.50 per week (£2.10 per day). Payment may be made half-termly; amounts are advertised in the newsletter.
