We provide an excellent variety of meals for all children and free school meals for Key Stage 1, which are all cooked on our premises daily and served to our children in our school hall.
We are very fortunate to be able to offer a varied menu consisting of a main hot meal or a school sandwich, all of which are served with vegetables. This is followed by a choice of pudding, fresh fruit or yoghurt, water is also available. A menu is available to download below.
The cost of each meal is £2.30 which is considerably less than the Local Authority recommendation, and it is our express desire to keep costs to a minimum. If you wish to pay online follow this link schoolgateway.com
Free school lunch
If you believe you may be eligible for Free School Meals, as you are a low income family or receiving benefits, then please contact our School Office for further details. Acceptance for Free School Meals not only provides your family with a benefit to the value of approximately £450 per child per year, but also benefits the school via the Government's Pupil Premium Grant.
Snacks and Drinks
All children are welcome to bring in a healthy snack and drink of water from home. We have a very successful Fruit Tuck Shop which is open during morning break, it stocks a variety of fruits, fruit juice, water, toast and homemade cookies. The children are also encouraged to bring with them a bottle of water to have during lessons.
In addition, we provide all our Foundation Stage children with a drink of milk each day – this is essential for healthy development and over and above the stated statutory requirement.
