Lunch, Milk & Snacks

Pre-Order school lunches with ASPENS

Please contact the school office for login details

 

SCHOOL LUNCHES

School lunches are cooked on our premises by our caterers Aspens.

These are offered on a 3 week menu cycle. Please see the link below for the current menu. Parents pre-order their child’s meal with Aspens.

Cost: Meals are free for children in Reception, Years 1 & 2. They cost £2.88 per day for children in Years 3, 4, 5 & 6.

Packed Lunch: Children may alternatively bring a healthy packed lunch. Please ensure packed lunches DO NOT contain peanut butter sandwiches or nuts of any kind as we have children in the school with severe allergies to these foods. Fizzy drinks, sweets and chocolates are also not allowed.

Allergies – Aspens already cater for children with a number of medical dietary needs across the county, but in order to provide for new children with medical allergies and intolerances you will need to complete an on-line application – click HERE to access. Please note that paperwork will need to be completed with Aspens before they will provide your child with a meal.

MILK

Milk is available to all children. Please pay in advance BEFORE the beginning of term (link to form below). Free milk is available for children who are under 5 for the whole of the current term. 

BREAK TIME SNACKS - Please be mindful - we have a number of children in school with touch and airborne allergies.

EYFS, Years 1-2 – the government continue to provide a piece of fruit/vegetable daily.

Years 3 – 6 Please provide your child with a suitable snack for break time, preferably a piece of fruit or vegetable or plain cracker. No chocolate, sweets, crisps, milk products and any items that contain nuts.
