Special Diets - Allergies & Food Intolerance

If your child requires a special diet due to allergies or food intolerance you now need to complete a Special Diet Request Form which you can request from the School Office and return it to Caterlink.
Once your form is received a Caterlink Nutrionalist, in conjunction with our School Cook, will prepare a suitable set of menus for your child. You will then be asked to approve this menu. 


Special Diets - Religious Beliefs

If your child requires a special diet due to religious beliefs please inform the School Office in writing. No special form needs to be completed.


Vegetarian Diets

If your child is vegetarian please inform the School Office in writing. No special form needs to be completed. Children who are listed as vegetarian will be given vegetarian food only. 
Children who just do not like the meat option on any particular day will not necessarily be given a vegetarian option as only so many vegetarian portions are cooked each day. 
Jacket potatoes with a variety of fillings are available every day.


Bread
Freshly baked on site every day.

Paid for meals

Paid for meals are £2.30 per day for children in Year 3- Year 6. School Dinners are paid via ParentMail. You can top up your child's account as and when you choose. You will be sent an email alerting you if your balance goes below £5.


Universal Infant Free School Meals: FS-Y2

In 2014 the government introduced universal infant free school meals for all pupils in Foundation Stage, Year 1 and Year 2. All your child needs to do is put their hand up for dinners when the morning register is called.

Free School Meals

Free school meals are offered to children in all year groups whose parents receive: 
• Income Support 
• Income based Employment & Support Allowance
• Income based Job Seekers Allowance 
• support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
• the Guaranteed element of State Pension Credit 
• Child Tax Credit provided your annual income as assessed by the Inland Revenue does not exceed £16,190 and provided that Working Tax Credit is not included.


If you think you are eligible for free school meals (even if your child receives Universal Infant Free School Meals) please let the staff in the School Office know as we receive essential additional funding for every free school meal pupil which will benefit your child beyond just free school dinners.
