School lunches are prepared and cooked on the premises daily by our cook, Mrs Sue Peach, using only the freshest preservative and additive free ingredients. There is always a vegetarian option and all efforts are made to cater for everyone's tastes. The current price of cooked school lunch is £2.30 which we feel represents good value for a nutritionally balanced meal.
Alternatively children may bring a packed lunch into school.
Children sit in mixed age groups within the school hall and are looked after by Miss McCormack, Mrs Tobin, and Mrs Gloyns who are our mealtime assistants.
Lunch money is paid for in advance either weekly, monthly, or half termly. We encourage the use of Parentpay which is a website to pay for dinners online. However we also accept cash or cheques made payable to First Federation Trust.
Free School Meal Provision.
From September 2014 the Government have introduced the Universal Free School Meal available to all children in Key Stage 1 (Foundation, Year 1 and Year 2.)
Free meal provision by the local authority is still available if you are in receipt of certain benefits. Enquiries should be made to the administrator who will treat all applications in the strictest confidence.
Mrs Peach also makes snacks for breaktimes. They cost 20p daily and include a variety of bakes including flapjack, shortbread and toast is always available.
Class 2 & 3
If your child would like to buy snacks at break times please purchase your child's snack tickets via Parent Pay. Once we've seen the payment the school office will administer their snack tickets to the students to take home, and only required to handover a ticket per day.
Class 1 will pay termly for snacks via Parent Pay (unless you wish to provide your child with a snack from home, in which case please inform the teacher) They will not need to handle any tickets. Snacks will be brought to class and then eaten together.
Free fruit is supplied to children in Class 1.
