We require two weeks notice to switch to/from school meals, this is due to the need for the catering team to order food in advance. We may occasionally waive this notice period however, this is only in exceptional circumstances (e.g a medical condition) and by prior arrangement with the school office.
Free School Meals
If you are claiming certain benefits, your child(ren) may also be entitled to free school meals. To check your eligibility and apply for free school meals click here.
The School Milk Scheme
By registering your child for the school milk scheme they will receive a 189ml (third of a pint) bottle of semi-skimmed milk every day.
How much does it cost?
Every child under the age of five is entitled to FREE school milk.
Every child over the age of five is entitled to milk at a subsidised price of around £15.00 per term.
If your child is eligible for Free School Meals (not the Universal Infant Free School Meals) they are also entitled to free milk.
Why should I register my child?
School milk provides your child with essential nutrients. It is also rehydrating and energy boosting , helping to bridge the long gap between breakfast and lunch so children stay focused.
Some of the main reasons to drink milk at school can be found here.
