Payment

Meals are priced at £2.45 from Year 3 onwards. All children who are in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 in a state-funded school are offered a free healthy school lunch. Payment will be taken out of the parent/carer ParentMail Pay account, so please make sure that this is topped up regularly via ParentMail.

For ParentMail help and support please click here.

Additional money is available from central government for every child whose parent is receiving one of the welfare benefits listed below in the ‘Pupil Premium and Free School Meals’ section. It is therefore important to sign up for Pupil Premium, even if your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, so that your child’s school receives as much funding as possible.

Healthy eating

Each child is invited to bring a piece of fruit or vegetable for a healthy snack at morning break. Children are encouraged to bring water bottles and drink regularly in order to support learning and health.

 Where a child has dietary, cultural, medical or special educational needs which impact diet, we ask parents to discuss those needs with us, as well as fill in the Norse ‘Allergen Aware Registration Form’ (available at the bottom of this page), and return to the address listed on the first page.
You can download the latest menus further down on this page.

You may be eligible for a free school meal if as a parent or guardian you are in receipt of the following:

We need information about you and your child, so that we can provide them with the best education and support, by making sure that the school receives all the government funding to which it is entitled.

There are facilities at the school for children to bring packed lunches. These should be packed in a plastic container clearly marked with your child’s name.

On Health and Safety grounds, our policy is that no peanut butter or nut products are permitted in school.

In line with our healthy eating ethos, packed lunches should not contain sweets, fizzy drinks or chocolate bars. We encourage children to eat fruit and vegetables wherever possible.
