Food and Snacks
We are a Healthy School and would ask parents to support us in helping children make good choices in adopting a balanced diet.
All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to receive a free school meal, through the Universal Free School Meal Scheme.
Key Stage 2 pupils whose parents’ joint income does not exceed £16,190, may also be entitled to free school meals – details and application forms are available from the office or via the Worcestershire County Council website: http://www.worcestershire.gov.uk/cms/school-information-for-parents/school-free-meals.aspx.
Key Stage 2 children can also purchase a hot school meal or sandwiches for £2.30 per day.
Children can have a meal every day or just occasionally, but they must be pre-ordered by the Wednesday morning of the week before. Order forms and a collection box can be found outside the office.
Children in Reception and Key Stage 1 are offered fruit at morning break, free of charge, to encourage them to make healthy choices. Key Stage 2 children are encouraged to bring a healthy snack for breaktime. Chocolate, crisps, and sweets are not allowed to be consumed as their breaktime snack.
Children under 5 are entitled to receive a carton of free milk each day. If you wish for your child to continue to receive milk after this, it can be ordered at a subsidised cost, currently 22p a carton.
All children should bring a named water bottle into class each day which can be refilled. Fizzy and sugary drinks are not allowed in school.
