From September 2021 we will return to a three week rotating menu. The selection will be in line with Government guidelines on healthy eating. Every day there will be a gluten free and vegetarian option. We will once again be able to provide hot school meals to all children or the alternative option of a school packed lunch, for Years 3 - 6. The cost for children in Years 3 - 6 will be £2.45 per day. Children in Reception, Year 1 and 2 are entitled to a free hot school meal. Unfortunately we cannot provide free packed lunches for these year groups. Sandwiches are served on white or wholemeal bread with a choice of fillings. Gluten free rolls are available.
Children are also able to bring in their own packed lunch from home, please ensure that this does not include any nuts. We try to promote and educate children on healthy eating, so please try to send your child with an appropriately filled lunchbox. There is a 'Healthy Eating' leaflet below where you might find some ideas. Please note that we cannot heat food sent in from home for your children. If you prefer them to have a hot lunch, we do provide freshly cooked hot food as above.
|The current menu will also be displayed on notice boards around the school.|
Meals must be paid for in advance weekly or termly. The easiest way to pay for dinners is online. At this time you can only pay, but not book school dinners,online. Payments for can be made through Tucasi scopay.com. https://www.scopay.com. If you haven't yet registered with Scopay, you will need a 'link code' from us to do so. If you are unable to pay online we do accept cheques, made payable to ‘Oxfordshire County Council’ or cash which should be sent into the school office on Monday morning, with the correct change. As always, please send money into school in a sealed envelope, clearly marked with your child’s name, class and the days for which the payments cover.
Pupils whose parents/guardians are in receipt of particular support payments and meet certain criteria may be eligible to receive free school meals. These children will be able to have a hot school meal if they wish, whichever year group they are in. Should you feel you might qualify, please contact the school office for an application form and return this with your proof of entitlement. Original up to date copies must be produced and we are unable to authorise free school meals without the necessary paperwork.
