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.
EYFS and 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, Maria, 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 3 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:
Universal Credit with an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400.
Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
Support under Part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
The guarantee element of Pension Credit
Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for the four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)
Child Tax Credit (with no Working Tax Credit) with an annual income of no more than £16,190
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.
