                            Change of Menu Thursday 5th October 2017                            

To promote universal free school meals the children have a chance to taste our delicious hotdogs or veggie pizza! All Reception, Y1 and Y2 children will take part in our taster day – hotdog with wedges, baked beans and coleslaw or veggie pizza with beans or coleslaw, followed by scrumptious chocolate cake! (Children can bring in a packed lunch with them as well if they would like to). Please note: All other year groups will also have this dinner as a change in menu.

Free School Meals - All children in Reception, Year One and Year Two are automatically entitled to universal free school meals. However if you think that due to your circumstances you may be entitled to free school meals please use the new online checker which will give parents an instant decision on eligibility. The free school meal entitlement only lasts for one school term so parents need to apply every term break and for each child individually. The new checker can be found at note: If you do not apply you will be charged £2.19 per day per child, the scheme will not back date payments.
