At Our Lady's we encourage all children to have a healthy lunch whether they are having a dinner or sandwiches. We also encourage children to drink plenty of water and to eat a healthy snack at break times.
All children are encouraged to bring their own water bottle into school which can be filled up at the water fountains. Key Stage 1 children receive a piece of fresh fruit daily.
Our school dinner menu rotates on a three week basis. You can see our current menu below:
Free School Meals
All children who are in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 (Key Stage 1) are entitled to a free school meal irrespective of parental circumstances. This means that if you have a child in these years they may have, preferably a hot meal, but sandwiches will be available. The government tell us that this will save a parent £400 per year.
Free school meals may be available to Key Stage 2 children if parents receive any of the following: Income Support, income-based Jobseeker's Allowance, income-related Employment and Support Allowance, Child Tax Credit, provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenue and Customs) that does not exceed £16,190, Working Tax Credit 'run-on' - the payment someone may receive for a further four weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit.
You cannot claim free school meals if you or your partner work over 16 hours or more each week. For more information ask at the school office.
