We are a Nut Free School
School Lunches are provided by Food & More who are contracted to Oxfordshire County Council and currently cost £2.20 per lunch, to be paid via Parent Mail.
Key Stage 1 children are entitled to the government’s universal infant free school meals (UIFSM) policy.
The delicious meals are mainly cooked on site by our School Cooks, Lesley, Kim and Jean.
A menu may be downloaded or is available in our reception area.
Each day during morning registration, children are asked if they are having a packed lunch or school lunch. They are then able to choose from 2 main courses, including a vegetarian option.
Lunches are served in 2 sittings. There is a small self service salad bar in addition to the main meal. Water is provided.
Free School Meals:
We would like to make you aware of the ‘Free School Meals’ scheme which operates in our School.
Pupils whose parents/guardians are in receipt of particular support payments and meet certain criteria may be eligible to receive free school meals. The relevant support payments include:
► Income Support (IS) - proof of entitlement is in the form of a Job Centre Plus letter or FF260 form.
► Income Based Job Seekers Allowance (IBJSA) - proof of entitlement is in the form of a Job Centre Plus letter but it should be noted that only income based JSA is eligible and this can be identified by the weekly amount awarded.
► Support under part VI of the Immigration & Asylum Act 1999 - proof of entitlement is in the form of a Home Office letter
► The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit - proof of entitlement is assessed by the ‘Pension Credit M1000 Award Notice’.
We encourage children to bring a healthy and eco- friendly lunch! That is no chocolate, sweets or fizzy drinks or food with lots of wrapping. A booklet with lunch ideas that make a change to sandwiches is available from the school Welcome Area.
Snacks and Water
Children in Classes 1 and 2 are given fruit that is provided by the Goverment scheme during the morning break.
Children in class 3 or 4 may bring in fruit for the morning break - but not fruit bars or chocolate.
Water filter machines are in school. Children are asked to bring in a named water bottle. It is taken home to be cleaned at the end of the day.
