We provide healthy, hot lunches, cooked on the premises. Each day there is a choice of main, vegetarian or jacket potato with filling. Meals also include seasonal vegetables and a pudding. Please call at the office to collect menus and order forms. Meals are ordered weekly in advance but you may order meals further ahead if you wish.
You can download a copy of the latest menu by clicking on the document below.
Please notify the school in writing if your child has allergies to certain foods or additives.
Alternatively children may bring a packed lunch in a plastic box or ideally a small cool bag and clearly marked with their name. We encourage all children to eat healthily. Please do not include sweets in your child’s lunch box. Canned or glass bottles are not permitted in school for safety reasons. If children go home they should not return to school earlier than ten minutes before the afternoon session begins. Please use our signing in/out book in the office when you collect/return your child.
Universal Free School Meals
All pupils currently in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are able to receive a school meal at no cost to parent/carers. Choosing a universal free school meal will help save you up to £450 per year, encourage positive eating habits and helps to improve concentration and performance in the classroom. A school lunch will also provide a varied and balanced diet and provide the right amount of energy to ensure that your child can work better in the afternoons.
Free School Meals
If you wish to find out if you are entitled to free school meals, please contact the school office where the staff will be pleased to help. Children in receipt of free school meals also qualify for a reduction in costs for educational visits and other chargeable events, so it is always worth enquiring.
There is a universal eligibility checking service for free school meals, which enables us to check all primary and secondary school pupils for free school meal eligibility. This system also determines eligibility for Pupil Premium, which means schools will receive an extra £1,300 per eligible pupil from central government to fund valuable support such as extra tuition and learning support.
To help ensure that we are able to claim the correct level of funding, please provide the details requested on the Primary Registration Form
and return it to school as soon as possible. Parents do not have to provide this information but we would encourage you to register so that we receive as much Pupil Premium funding as possible.
To avoid requesting this information again, Lincolnshire County Council will store your data securely and it will be checked periodically for eligibility.
For a paper copy of the latest menu/order form please contact the school office. Meat and vegetarian options are available every day and most dietary requirements can be catered for.
If your child is eligible for free school meals it means they can enjoy delicious, healthy meals without the cost and fuss of making packed lunches. Many children at our school are already eating free school meals, and your child may be able to have them too.
