Parents can order milk for Reception children, which is free until their 5th birthday.
We provide a selection of fresh fruit and raw vegetables free of charge to Reception and Key Stage 1 children. Children, including Key Stage 2 children, may also bring in fresh or dried fruit or prepared vegetables for their snack.
Children either have a cooked meal, provided by the school, or may bring a packed lunch from home.
Through the national Universal Infant Free School Meal (UIFSM) initiative, a hot meal can be provided for pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 at no cost to parents/carers. However, parents/carers need to register to take up this offer. Forms are available from the school office.
Pupils in Years 3 and 4 who are entitled to receive the Pupil Premium Grant are also able to have a free hot meal at lunchtimes as part of the entitlement to Pupil Premium Grant. Application forms to see if your child is entitled to Pupil Premium, and a free hot meal at lunchtime, are available in the school office.
Pupils in Years 3 and 4 who are not entitled to Pupil Premium Grant can pay for meals at a cost of £2.55 per meal. Meals need to be ordered a week in advance. Our meals are provided by Edwards and Ward, from Oakfield Academy kitchens and are of high quality. Children have a choice of main meal, dessert and accompaniments.
All children are encouraged to bring a bottle of water to be kept in their classrooms. This is in addition to their lunchtime drink.
We are a nut free school. We do have children and staff with nut allergies. We ask parents to support us in keeping everyone safe and well by ensuring that no nuts, or products containing nuts, are brought into school.
