We are pleased to announce hot meals will resume from Monday 19th October. Children can still order a school 'pack up' or can bring their own packed lunch from home if they prefer. The cost is £2.10 per day for children in Years 3, 4 , 5 and 6, and £1.60 per day in Nursery. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 receive a government-funded school meal free of charge.
To avoid the need for cash handling and keep our office staff safe, we are asking that you pay for your child's meals via Parentpay. Login details have been sent home, if you need a copy or any help registering please just let the office know who will be happy to help. More information can be found further down the page.
We must receive payment for school meals in advance. This can be paid daily, weekly, monthly, half-termly or termly. The current price is £2.10 per day, or £10.50 per week. Nursery children are welcome to stay for a school lunch, the current price of a nursery meal is £1.60 per day.
Free School Meals
If you claim certain benefits your child may be eligible for free school meals and pupil premium funding. More information on eligibility and how to apply can be found here or by visiting the NYCC free school meal webpage here.
The ParentPay online payment facility can be accessed on a computer/laptop or mobile phone or, if you don't have internet access, by Paypoint card. Payment is made directly from your debit/credit card. School will provide parents with a password and instructions as to how to set up an account on ParentPay. Further information on ParentPay and how to get started is available here.
New menus are published each term to enable you to choose meals with your children. Each day the children can choose whether they would like the hot meal option or our Cold Café option. A vegetarian hot meal is also available each day. Parents are invited to sample school meals at any time, please contact the school office for further information.
If your child would prefer to bring a packed lunch, please ensure your child’s food is packed into a named bag and that your child has a drink. Glass bottles and fizzy drinks are not allowed.
We promote healthy eating in school so please keep sweets and chocolates bars as treats for home, they must not be part of a packed lunch. Any food your child does not eat is returned home in his/her lunch box. Please see the teacher if your child does not eat enough at lunchtime.
At lunchtime Mrs Snow, Mrs Ackroyd and their team of midday assistants supervise the children.
Special Dietary Requirements
These can usually be catered for, please contact the school office for further details.
