All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are provided with a free school dinner every day as part of a government initiative (Universal Free Meals) to provide infant aged children with a varied, healthy nutritional meal that will provide the right amount of energy to ensure that children work and learn better in the afternoons.
The meals are prepared and cooked in our new purpose built kitchen and all meals comply with the Food Standards guidelines set by the Government. The menu is a three week rolling menu which will be changed 2 – 3 times during the year.
We will take on board feedback from the children in respect of their ’likes’ and ‘dislikes’ and where possible make tweaks to the menu to ensure a high take up.
We hope that every child will take up this offer which will save parents on average £450 over the year which is the cost of providing a packed lunch from home.
In anticipation of children in these year groups taking advantage of a free hot dinner an Option 1 Meal will be provided for every child in Reception, Year 1 & Year 2. If your child would prefer the Option 2 Vegetarian choice please let the school office know before the end of term so that the order can be changed.
Children with special dietary requirements can be catered for so please ask at the school office and Mrs Andersen will be happy to chat to you.
