Autumn/Winter 2023 School Lunch Menu Please find above the new menu, which will start after the half term break, on Tuesday 31st October 2023. There are a few points to be aware of: Week 1 - Wednesday – the roast will always be chicken Week 3 - Wednesday – the sausages will be pork (unless you order the veggie option)
Although this menu does not show it separately, there will be a jacket potato option as a main course (with various fillings), and fruit and yoghurt as a dessert, all available, every day. There will be an option to select these when you order via Caterlink/ParentPay.
Infant school aged pupils are entitled to a free school meal, every day.
Caterlink, our school meal provider, will be using ParentPay for meal bookings. To view the menu, you will need to have an active ParentPay account. (please note this is different to ParentMail, the system we use for our online communications).
If you already have a ParentPay account with another ParentPay school, you can simply login to that account and add your other children via the add a child button on your home page. You will need the activation username and password above to do this which will provided to you when you child joins the school. If you are new to ParentPay, go to parentpay.com, click login and enter the user name and password provided to in your activation email from Parentpay. You will be prompted to change these when you set up your account. You will require an email address to activate your account. You can add multiple children to the same ParentPay account using the add a child button on your home page.
However, would like to reiterate to all of our parents who order school meals for their children, that is is important that they check EVERY WEEKEND to ensure that meals are ordered for the following week. The kitchen only prepare the number of meals ordered - they do not cook any spares. If you child does not have a school lunch ordered, you will be asked to bring a lunch from home and unfortunately your child will need to wait until this arrives before they can eat.
If you choose to supply a packed lunch from home, please ensure that lunch boxes are clearly labelled with your child’s name and class. Please remember that the school is a NUT FREE ZONE as several children have nut allergies. THIS INCLUDES SPREADS SUCH AS NUTELLA. If you child does bring these products to school, we will remove them and you will need to bring a suitable replacement from home. We are also a healthy eating school and therefore chocolate and sweets are not allowed - thank you.
Free Fruit Scheme and Drinking Water
The children are offered a mid-morning snack of a fruit such as an apple, banana, pear, raisins or cherry tomatoes as part of the government initiative for children to eat five portions of fruit or vegetables per day. Children are also encouraged to drink water throughout the day. This is freely available to drink in classrooms and during breaks from the outdoor water fountains. Alternatively, you may provide your own, labelled bottle for your child’s personal use.
