School Meals, Morning Snacks & Milk
School Meals - we are fortunate enough to have our own kitchen at the school and meals are cooked on site by Twelve15 (formerly Surrey Commercial Services). A copy of the menu for the current week is displayed in the office window and on a board in the reception area of the school office. Occasionally last minute changes may need to be made to the menus. More information on the service provided by Twelve15 is provided in the link below.
Currently school meals are provided free of charge for all children in our school as part of the government initiative. If you do not want your child to have a school meal, you must give at least a week's notice to take them out of the system. Packed lunches should be brought in a named lunch box and be taken into the classroom each morning where they will be stored safely until lunchtime. They should not contain nuts, sweets, fizzy drinks or food that needs to be chilled/heated. Below is a leaflet with suggestions on types of healthy foods to pack.
If your child has any kind of special dietary requirement ie allergies, vegetarian, religious reasons, this can be catered for. You should complete an online application form immediately via Twelve15 (link to the portal below). No alternatives can be offered unless this online application is completed. Our Catering Supervisor is very happy to discuss with any parent what alternatives are available should you wish to talk to her.
Morning Snacks and Water
The school also participates in the fruit and vegetable scheme which means every child is offered a healthy snack at morning break time. This is provided free. Children are not allowed to bring any other form of snack. We do encourage every child to bring a bottle of water which they are allowed to drink from during the school day. Each classroom either has its own water fountain in the cloakrooms or has drinking water available from the sinks in the classrooms.
Many of our children also enjoy milk at morning break. This is provided through a company called Cool Milk (link below). Free milk is provided through this scheme for children under the age of 5 or for those who receive free school meals (certain criteria must be met) if you apply for it.
