School menus and food for life

St Paul’s has maintained Healthy School Status and we encourage children to lead a healthy lifestyle. We have also been awarded the Silver Award for Food for Life.

We are delighted to be part of the Fruit for School Scheme for Reception and Key Stage 1. We have fresh fruit delivered to the school throughout the week which the children eat at playtime. Children may bring in fresh fruit, vegetables or a bread based snack to keep them going through the morning. NO NUTS, as we have children with severe nut allergies.

Our school meals are provided by Caterlink and are cooked daily by our
school chef. School dinner menus are changed weekly. A copy of the school
menu is displayed on the notice boards and in the school hall or you can see it in the link at the bottom of this page. The children are encouraged to select a balanced meal from the menu.

If you would like your child to have school lunches, we ask you to commit to half a term at a time. All school lunches must be paid in advance by the week, half term or term. 

Cheques should be made out to “St Paul’s CE Primary School”. Money or cheques should be put in a sealed envelope marked with your child’s name and class and handed in to the school office.

Payments can also be made online through Tucasi.

If payment is missed for two consecutive weeks a reminder will be sent to
you.

KS1 Free School Meals

From the beginning September 2014, significant changes are happening to school meals, every pupil in Reception, Year 1 and 2 will be eligible for free school meals.

Registering for School meals

We ask that ALL PARENTS fill in the school meals registration form. This is important so that we can continue to register pupils who attract pupil premium, which is worth £1,300 a year per pupil for our school.  If you have any questions, please contact Jane Kent.

More information can also be found on our school food plan website www.schoolfoodplan.com/toolkit
