REGISTRATION FOR PUPIL PREMIUM – RECEPTION PUPILS

You may be aware that since September 2014 all pupils in KS1 (Reception, Year1 & Year2) are entitled to receive a free school dinner as part of a new government initiative. However for those pupils who have a statutory entitlement to free school meals ie those pupils whose parents/carers are in receipt of certain benefits, the school can benefit from additional funding called Pupil Premium. This is worth over £1000 per pupil for the school, if you register your entitlement.  If you have not already done so please CLICK HERE to register online or alternatively click on the following Pupil Premium Registration Form to download and complete a paper application form.  For more information regarding the Pupil Premium and what it means for our school please look in the School Policies section of the website under the heading ‘information’.

Why Choose School Meals?

It’s the Healthy Option.  The School Food Plan and the new food based standards for lunches aim to improve the academic performance of our children and the health of our nation.  Good food provision in schools has shown to lead not only to healthier children but also to improved achievement.

The cost of school meals for those not eligible for free school dinners is £2.30 per day.  Where possible we ask that the school office is given one weeks notice for children wanting to change to/from School dinners/packed lunches.

The School Lunch Timetable was amended slightly to take into account a possible rise in children taking up the offer of Free School Meals (for ALL children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2).  The new time slots are as follows:
Reception – 11.40am to 12.45pm
Year 1 & 2 – 11.45 to 12.45pm
Years 3-6 – 12.05pm to 1pm

Our school milk scheme

Did you know our school has a school milk scheme?
By registering your child for our school milk scheme they will receive a 189ml (third of a pint) carton of semi-skimmed milk every day. This is delivered fresh and chilled to their classroom every day.

“How much does it cost?”
Thanks to government subsidies, school milk is free for all under-fives and is subsided at around £15 a term for children aged five or older.

“Why should I register my child?”
School milk provides your child with essential nutrients such as calcium and protein, for strong, healthy teeth and bones. It is also rehydrating and energy boosting, helping to bridge the long gap between breakfast and lunch so children stay focused.
