This school provides a hot school meals service. Alternatively, children may prefer to bring a home packed lunch.
Home Packed Lunch Option
When sending in lunch please pack the food in a plastic food box, marked with the child’s name. Lunchboxes are stored in special trolleys or in allocated locations. The school promotes healthy eating. We have a Food in School Policy and a wealth of information regarding healthy eating including recipe ideas, nutritional information and safe storage instructions.
School Lunch Option
Hot meals are provided by Food & More, an Oxfordshire County Council service. Information about this service is available here https://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/cms/content/school-meals.
All pupils in Year R, 1 and 2 are offered a meal free of charge. Other pupils may also have hot meals on a paying basis. Each meal costs £2.20.
The menu is a set menu and a vegetarian option is also offered if necessary or preferred. Allergies are catered for and the allergy must be clearly stated on the order form.
Meals must be ordered one week in advance of the week of requirement. Parents do not have to order a meal for every day of the week; children may bring a packed lunch on some days should they wish. The menu will be displayed on the school website/sent home once only. Parents should view the menu, taking careful note of the dates at the top of the column. Select those days on which you wish your child to have a meal and make it very clear on the order form by placing a large tick in the correct box. Please return the order form to school and, if you are a paying family, please also enclose the correct payment in a sealed envelope. The envelope should be clearly named.
Free meals are available (to a value of £2.20), to children whose parents are in receipt of Income Support, Income Based Jobseeker’s Allowance, Support under part IV of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999, State Pension Credit, Employment and Support Allowance or Child Tax Credit, where the parent is not entitled to Working Tax Credit and whose annual taxable income is less than £16,190. Please inform the School Business Manager if you wish to apply for free meals and complete the form below:
Although we will try to remind you before the authorisation of free meals runs out, it must be emphasised that it remains your responsibility to apply for the entitlement to continue. Unfortunately, we are not allowed to provide free school meals unless an application is made and the relevant documents are presented. Please ask the school office for a form. The duty to provide a free lunch to an otherwise eligible child will be conditional on a request being made by, or on behalf of, an eligible child, and no monetary compensation will be made. Currently eligibility for free school meals at this school is 0%.
Universal Infant Free School Meals UIFSM
UIFSM is not the same offer as “free meals”. UIFSM have been introduced by the government from September 2014. Meals are offered free of charge to all pupils in reception, Year 1 and Year 2. Families are not obliged to take up the offer should they have no wish to do so.
Lunch is usually taken in the Village Hall. Should the Village Hall not be available, lunch can be temporarily accommodated in class rooms. Children are supervised in the Village Hall by school staff.
