Free School Meals during School Closure

From Monday 23rd March, school will be closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. To support parents during the first week of the school closure, grab bags were available for parents to collect from school. Following that, school has organised for Tesco vouchers to be emailed to parents. In the meantime, we have been setting up the Government Free School Meal voucher scheme through 'Edenred'. These vouchers will now be the system used by school from Friday 24th April.

Frequently Asked Questions about DfE Edenred Vouchers

Have your circumstances changed due to the lockdown?

Lots of famillies have found that their circumstances have changed during the current pandemic. To support with food for your children, check to see if you are now eligible for Free School Meal provision. Families entitled will receive a £15 voucher each week to spend on food for children.

School Meals

From September 2019 we are delighted to be working with 'Relish' to provide our school meals. Relish are committed to providing quality, fresh ingredients that are cooked from scratch to produce
our daily menus. Wherever possible, we will use seasonal produce and the daily food offer allows our children to choose from a wide variety of freshly prepared main meals and desserts.


Relish take pupil voice very seriously. Knowing what a positive impact good food can have on the
developing minds and bodies of our children, they will attend school council meetings to ensure they
capture initial reactions to new dishes and food ideas and gain understanding about what works
well.

 

From 4th September 2019, school meals will cost £2.10 each day for pupils in Nursery and Key Stage 2 (Years 3, 4 5, and 6). All children in Reception, and in Years 1 and 2 are entitled to a free school meal through the Government's Universal Infant Free School Meals scheme. Some families will also be entitled to a free school meal if they are in receipt of particular benefits.

 

Children have four choices each day including a Classic Combo Option (Grab Bag) which includes a wrap, vegetable or fruit sticks, and a cake or biscuit. There are also vegetarian choices and a halal option on a daily basis.

 

We hold many special days within the school year and will work with Relish to make sure there is relevance to the event; it may be linked to the curriculum or a theme within school. We welcome Parents and Grandparents to some events too!

Menus and Recipes

There is a special parent login area on the Relish website where you can view and download menus and recipes, see what forthcoming events are planned, look at allergen information and contact the catering team.

Taste Pilot Superheroes - 31st January 2019

Our School Council had a treat today as they took part in the taste pilot for the next school meals menu. Their task was to try the different options that are being considered and then rate them. Their completed questionnaires will then be used by the LBC Catering Team to help with making the decision about the next menu choices.
