Universal Infant Free School Meals. All Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children may have a free school lunch. We would still ask that you make an application for free school meals so that if we should need to issue vouchers and you qualify under benefits related free school meals, you would not miss out.
Some children still choose to bring a packed lunch or go home. We ask that whatever the children decide – go home / stay / have a packed lunch –they continue to do so for a period of a half term. At the end of that time they may change if they wish and you must complete a form at the school office. Lunches MUST be paid for in advance.
If your child has a packed lunch send it in with your child in a container with a lid that is easily opened. As we cannot take responsibility for damaged lunches, we ask you to send unbreakable containers for liquids. We ask that children do not bring sweets as part of their lunch. The school tries promotes healthy eating and has a no sweets policy. Please do not bring packed lunches during the morning and ask the office staff to deliver them.
As supervision is only provided for children who stay to lunch, we ask that children who go home follow the opening time guidelines. Home dinners pupils should come back 10 mins before the bell. All Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children are entitled to free school meals. Some KS2 children are also entitled to a free meal. We work with Middlesbrough Council Free school Meals Team who will tell you if your children are eligible. You can collect a Free School Meal application from school reception or from the link below. Please return completed forms to the school office.
