We recently contacted you about school dinners and the funding we receive towards providing free school meals to children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. On Thursday 1st October (this week) data will be collected on how many children take a school dinner on that day. This data is then used to calculate how much funding we receive for our school for this purpose. It is therefore crucial that as many children as possible in this category take a school dinner on Thursday this week. We would be very grateful if you would choose this option to support us.
On Thursday this week we are trialling for all children a special menu of:
- Hotdogs (vegetarian option available)
as well as the usual options of:
- Choice of bread – brown roll, white roll, wrap or baguette
- Choice of filling – cheese, ham, tuna or egg mayo
Both choices will also include as always:
- Pasta pot and salad
- Cookie/ bun
- Milk shake/ water/apple juice/orange juice
Choosing a school dinner every day whilst your child is in the eligible group could potentially save you £418.00 per year! This funding from the government supports the running of the kitchen so we can provide a full service for all. If there is not enough uptake, our school doesn’t get the funding and will need to cover the cost from other areas which are already financially stretched.
Many thanks for your support.
