School Meals

From September 2014, significant changes are happening to school food:  cooking is back on the curriculum, every pupil in reception, year 1 and 2 will be eligible for free school meals and from January, new food standards are being introduced.  These are three of the 16 actions in the School Food Plan, which aims to transform what children eat in schools and how they learn about food (see www.schoolfoodplan.com).

Good food and good food culture has been shown to lead not only to healthier, happier and more fulfilled children, but to improve educational attainment.  Evidence from those areas that already provide universal free school meals is that children eat more healthily and perform better academically.  Schools in those areas have also reported improved behaviour and atmosphere as a result of all pupils eating together every day.

New standards for school food have recently been published and will come into force in January.  By following them, we can be sure that our pupils will get the nutrition they need across the whole school day.

We believe that the school lunchtime is a great opportunity for all our children to sit down together and enjoy their healthy and tasty meal, while developing their social skills.

We ask that ALL PARENTS fill in our school meals registration form.  This is important so that we can continue to register pupils who attract pupil premium, which is worth £1,300 a year per pupil for our school. The Pupil Premium is an allocation of funding provided to schools to support children from low-income families (families with a joint income under £16,190).  Should your family situation change and you think your child may be eligible,  please complete our Pupil Premium form ( Click here for form ) and return it to the school office. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs Creasey, via the school office.
