We are fortunate to have our own kitchen where hot meals are prepared. A choice of meals (hot meals and school sandwiches) are offered with daily and weekly menus displayed around the school. These can also be viewed online on the school website. The school operates a “cafeteria” system where the children collect their meals at the serving hatch and eat with their friends. Water is provided for each child. All cooked meals and packed lunches are eaten in the
hall and supervised by Lunchtime Supervisors.
School meals should be paid on Monday mornings and all monies should be sent to school in an envelope with your child’s name and class written on it. Payment can be made by cheque written out to Sheffield City Council.
Free School Meals
All children in Foundation 2 and Key Stage 1 are entitled to a school meal free of charge as part of a Government initiative. If parents of these children are eligible for free school meals by way of benefits (ie. income support, child tax credit or jobseeker’s allowance), they should still apply in order that funding linked to the claim can be made available to the school. Free school meals are available for children whose parents are eligible by way of benefits (as above) and details about applying can be obtained from the school office.
You are encouraged to provide a healthy lunch if your child brings his/her lunch from home. These meals should be sent in a suitable container with your child’s name and class clearly labelled. Water is available for all children. Glass bottles, cans and flasks should not be brought to school.
Free school milk is provided for all children under five, and to children of parents/carers eligible for free school meals by way of benefits. Parents/carers of any other children wishing to have milk must pay at the beginning of each term. Order forms are sent home with children the term before milk is required. The cost will vary according to the number of weeks in the term. Children must have milk every day or not at all. We are sorry but if your child is absent, refunds cannot be given.
Mid Morning Snack
Milk is drunk mid morning and all children are encouraged to drink water from school water bottles. These are named and stored in classrooms so that they are available for children throughout the day. Chilled water is available for all children. Children are allowed to bring fresh fruit or vegetables for snack. The school has a Healthy Tuck shop selling fruit to Key Stage 2 children. Free fresh fruit or vegetables are available for all children up to the age of 7 years.
