School Meals

Lunches are freshly prepared on the school premises by our school cooks. They cost just £2.00 per day, £10 per week. At St Paul’s we regard lunchtimes as a valuable learning opportunity where social and independence skills can be developed. PLEASE CLICK ON THE RELEVANT MENU BELOW.

Pupils can choose from the menu choices the dishes they want to have on the day- similar to a canteen/café. Arrangements can be made for pupils who require a special diet, and a vegetarian option is always available.

Payment should be made when the meals are ordered. Weekly menus are sent out to inform parents so they can opt to order a meal each day. All Key Stage 1 (Reception to Year 2) children are eligible to receive a free school meal under the Government initiative - Universal Infant Free Meals. This can be indicated using the menu form too.

Please note the school does not extend credit.
 
If preferred, children in Key Stage 2 may bring a packed lunch. This should be in a clearly named container. Please do not give your child sweets or chocolate bars as a part or their lunch, or indeed provide a lunch which has a high proportion of sugary foods, as this can adversely affect your child's behaviour and energy levels in the afternoon. If your child brings a drink, it must be in a flask or plastic container with a well-fitting lid. No fizzy drinks please.
Breakfast
We run a Breakfast Club every morning between 8.15 am and 8.45 am. This is free to attend, however, for those pupils not entitled to Pupil Premium, we ask for a small donation of 80p towards the cost of resources. Thank you for your support.
Grab and go bagels and toast are available to purchase between 8.40 am and 8.55 am.
Fruit
Fruit is provided at morning break for all KS1 children, as a part of the National Fruit in Schools’ Scheme. Children may bring their own fruit as a playtime snack if they wish.
Milk
Children under 5 years of age are entitled to fresh milk daily, which is provided for free under the Cool Milk Scheme.  Milk is also available during lunchtime service.
Free School Meals
We actively encourage anyone who is eligible to apply for a free school meal to do so. Pupil Premium application forms are available from the school office and online. Naturally, all applicants are treated in the strictest confidence. If you would like any help with your application please do not hesitate to contact Miss Palmer.
 
Even if your child is in KS1 and receives a free meal, if you are receiving benefits, then your child may be eligible to receive Pupil Premium funding. This will allow the school to access further funding that will directly support your child’s learning.
