School Meals

School meals are provided by Chartwells. The current meal charge is £2.10 a day and should be ordered in advance. They need to be ordered online by midnight on Sunday one full week ahead of the week meals are requested.

 

To order meals you first need to register with Chartwells on their website: www.wiltshireandswindon.mealselector.co.uk. Once your registration is confirmed you will be able to order, amend and pay for meals online. Click to see the current menu. To see photos of some of the meals our children enjoy go to the gallery and scroll down.

                      

If your child is eligible for free school meals, it is worth registering them even if they're not going to have the school lunch as it will have a direct impact on the funding we receive and the support we can provide. Pupil Premium is additional government funding for schools to address the underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals and their peers.

 

Your child may be entitled to free school meals, if you are entitled to receive any of the following:

    • Income Support,
    • Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance,
    • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance,
    • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999, 
    • the Guarantee element of State Pension Credit, 
    • Child Tax Credit, provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenue & 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.

 

Please ask at the office for a form to register your child for free school meals,or you can complete Wiltshire Council's online form on www.wiltshire.gov.uk/freeschoolmeals 

  

Pupil Premium is allocated per free school meals pupil and it is for schools to decide how it is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. For more information look at our Pupil Premium report.

 

Mid-morning milk

Free milk is provided to those children in receipt of statutory free school meal entitlement and all children under five. For all other children milk can be purchased from our provider, Cool Milk, at a subsidised cost of 22p per day. To register for milk visit: www.coolmilk.com/register. Orders have to be placed and paid for by 5pm on a Tuesday for delivery the following week and Cool Milk accept payments online, over the phone, at a local PayPoint or by cheque. If your child is lactose intolerant you can request lactose-reduced milk or plain soya milk.

Break time snacks

If children would like a snack to eat at morning break time, they should bring a healthy snack on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and are able to have a treat on a Friday. The children have compiled a list of healthy snacks and ideas for a small treat on a Friday. Children in Ash, Oak and Willow classes will be offered a piece of fruit or a vegetable each day as part of the government’s free fruit to the under sevens initiative.
