Dear Parents/Carers

 

LUNCHTIME ARRANGEMENTS FOR YEAR 3 (SEPTEMBER 2022)

Under the Universal Free School Meals scheme all children in Reception to Year 2 are entitled to a free school meal at lunchtime. However, this scheme stops at the end of Year 2. Therefore, as children enter Year 3 in September school meals may need to be paid for.   The cost currently is £2.40 per day which is excellent value for money. Potentially a packed lunch could cost as much as £2.50 per day.

 

Key Facts about School Meals

  • They meet all the Government Nutritional Standards  
  • Salad, fresh fruit and hot vegetables are available with every meal.
  • A vegetarian option is always available
  • Children can help themselves to as much fresh salad and bread as they want.
  • Chilled water, semi-skimmed milk and fruit juices are always available.
  • Puddings contain healthy ingredients like fruit and oats.
  • Deep fried food, salt, sugar and manufactured meat products are restricted.

 

Meals can be provided free of charge for your child if you are eligible and have registered for free school meals. To register please see contact details below for Free School Meals.

If children do not wish to have a school meal they can bring a packed lunch.  This should be in a secure named container/packed lunch bag.  A drink should be provided in a non-breakable beaker.  No sweets or fizzy drinks are allowed instead we encourage lots of fruit, vegetables and water.  For more information on what a healthy packed lunch is visit www.childrensfoodtrust.org.uk

 

If in September, you wish to change your child’s meal pattern please contact the office.

 

Yours sincerely,
