We encourage all children to have a school meal and the weekly menu is on display in the Dining Room. An alternative can be offered and if your child would like to take up this option please inform Mrs Grinyer. The cost of school lunches: Nursery - £2.20 and Years 3/4 - £2.35, this is very good value for a freshly cooked nutritional meal. Universal Free School Meals are offered from Reception to Year 2.
Please always ensure that the school office and kitchen are informed of any food allergies. Hertfordshire Catering Ltd cannot guarantee that any meal is nut-free but nuts are never included in the school menu and there are no GM items.
Lunches are invoiced half-termly in advance and payment can either be made termly, half-termly or weekly. Any lunches not taken because of sickness, absence etc. are credited to the next half-term’s bill.
If you think you might be eligible for Free School Meals, please apply online at www.hertsdirect.org/freeschoolmeals or phone 0300 123 4048.
Snack & Milk
Nursery & Reception children are entitled to subsidised milk and for children under 5 this is free. (Any Nursery or Reception child who does not wish to have milk will be offered water at snack time.)
Milk is ordered and paid for in advance each term. Reception children in the Owl Class and all children in the Robin Class are entitled to free fruit and vegetables for snack as part of a government initiative. Nursery children and children in the Barkleys Class may bring in a piece of fruit/vegetable for snack time if they so wish.
