Hot and cold meals (including a drink) are provided each day at a reasonable price or via the universal free school meals scheme. These are transported from Bishop Lonsdale Primary School in Eccleshall. Children not partaking of a school meal can bring a packed lunch to school. If you wish your child to bring sandwiches please provide a strong container and leak proof plastic drink container. Glass bottles must not be brought to school.
The provision of free school meals for families who receive some form of benefit is also available. To see if you apply for these meals (pupils can be at any school age) please contact the school office.
DINNER MONEY is payable in advance either half termly or on the first working day of each week. It is currently £2.30 per day / £11.50 per week. Please make sure that the correct money (or cheque – made payable to Staffordshire County Council) is put in an envelope or purse clearly marked with your child’s name and given in at the Office.
PLAYTIME SNACKS Free fruit is distributed to the children during morning break for all those who want it. Milk is also available for children currently at a cost of 20p per carton (payable half termly – in advance). Pupils in Nursery and Reception receive free milk. It is not necessary to provide any other drink at break time as children are encouraged to drink water which is readily available in classrooms.
Our school has achieved Healthy Schools Status.
