Free Meals

In September 2014, Universal Free School Meals were introduced for all pupils in Foundation, Year 1 and Year 2. We encourage all parents to take up the offer.

In addition, your child may also qualify for free school meals if you are receiving one of the benefits listed here in this Nottinghamshire County Council Free School Meals Fact Sheet.

If you think your child may qualify for free school meals, please contact The Pupil Benefits Section - Tel: 01623 433007, or speak to a member of our office staff for further information or an application form.

Free School Meals should be claimed for all eligible children, regardless of age (including children entitled to Universal Free School Meals) as the school receives a Pupil Premium Grant from the government for all children who claim Free School Meals through the Local Authority.

Listen to Ruby, Rylee and Francesca here talking about what they enjoy most about their school meals:

     

Packed Lunches

Children may bring a packed lunch. These should be in a secure container and must not contain any glass bottles, sweets, chocolate bars, cereal bars or nuts, including peanut butter, nutella etc. This is because there are pupils with severe nut allergies. No nuts are allowed in packed lunches during day trips either.

All lunch boxes should be stored on the shelves under the shelter on the main playground. If you wish to change your child's lunch time arrangements, please do this at the start of half term and send a note beforehand to the office so kitchen staff can be prepared. You must give two weeks' notice of change from Academy provided meals to home provided packed lunch (and vice versa).

Milk & Fruit

Foundation and Key Stage One Children are provided with a free piece of fruit, during morning break time every day, under the National Fruit Scheme. Milk is free for children under the age of five and those in receipt of free school meals. Otherwise, when your child reaches five, you will be asked to pay for school milk.

Key Stage Two children are allowed to bring a piece of fruit from home to eat at morning break time. Cereal bars are not permitted.

Sweets

Sweets must not be brought into the Academy. If your child wishes to celebrate their birthday with their peers, they may bring in fruit to share.
