Free School Meals for Reception and Year 1 & 2

Universal Infant Free School Meals
The Government has announced funding for 'Universal Infant Free School Meals' or (UIFSM) from September 2014. This means that your child will receive a hot free school meal every day. This new initiative requires us to change our in school procedures because of the way in which these meals are funded by the Government. There will no longer be an option to alternate between hot meals and packed lunch.

Children who do not wish to take up their free school meal in September will be able to bring in a healthy packed lunch.

September 2014
From September each child in Reception, Year 1 and 2 will receive a UIFSM unless you opt out and decide to provide your child with a packed lunch. If you wish to do this then it would mean that you have opted out of the UIFSM initiative for the whole year.

Our new caterers Edwards and Ward's menu runs on a 3 week cycle. If you look at the choices there is now a wider variety of options for the children to enjoy. Soup and baguettes now make an entrance on to the culinary stage!

If you have any queries then please do not hesitate to contact us.
