School Meals...

Cooked School Meals cost just £2.10 and the Government fund free school meals for children in Reception and years 1 and 2.

 

Hot meals are prepared and cooked in the school kitchen daily by our wonderful cook Mrs Tennick. The emphasis is on healthy eating. School Meals are paid for through the Parent Pay system. 

Free School Meals are available to some children in accordance with family circumstances. If you think your child/children may be entitled to free school meals (see below for more information) please contact the school office.

 Packed Lunches

Children may choose to bring a packed lunch rather than have a school lunch. Foods such as sweets, chocolates and processed foods are discouraged as we believe that diet and nutrition are closely linked to behaviour and a child’s ability to learn.

 Break and snack

All of our children under seven get a piece of fruit or vegetable for their morning snack. Older children are encouraged to bring fruit or vegetables to school as a snack at break-times and all children are asked to bring a  water bottle to encourage drinking throughout the day.

 

North Yorkshire School Meals

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

Free School Meals

Free school meals are available to children whose parents are in receipt of one or more of the following benefits:

  • income support
  • income-based job seeker's allowance
  • income-related employment and support allowance
  • child tax credit with an income of less than £16,190 and not in receipt of working tax credit
  • support under part VI of the immigration and asylum act 1999
  • guarantee element of state pension credit.

Where parents are entitled to working tax credit during a four week "run on" period immediately after their employment has ceased, or after they have started to work less than 16 hours per week, their children are entitled to free school meals.

Children who receive income support or income based jobseeker's allowance in their own right are also entitled to free school meals. 

Should you meet the above criteria, you can apply by using the application form in the useful downloads section.

Applications are usually processed the same day. If your child is entitled to free school meals you will receive a letter confirming the date when the meals will start. The school is also notified that your child is entitled to free school meals. In the meantime, you should continue to pay for free school meals until confirmation comes through. Schools may be able to arrange a reimbursement of any monies paid whilst your entitlement is being confirmed.

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