Children have a school meal which is cooked on site or they may bring in a home packed lunch. The children have a choice of either the main dish of the day, vegetarian dish of the day, jacket potato or baguette, the filling options are below. As far as possible food is purchased locally. All children are supervised throughout the lunch hour (12.00 to 1.00 pm) by the midday supervisors.
School meals are ordered on a weekly basis or up to 5 weeks in advance via the parent portal. Since the introduction of Universal Infant Free School Meals all the infant children at St Michael’s are entitled to a free lunch. For junior children in year 3 upwards meals cost £2.30 per day. This is paid for via the parent portal secure.pupilasset.com
All children under 5 years old are entitled to free milk each day. For your child to benefit from this, register on the Cool Milk website at www.coolmilk.com. Your child may continue to have milk after they are 5, you pay for this termly direct to Cool Milk. Unfortunately, we cannot give refunds if children are absent but we will store it in the school fridge for you to collect.
Research has established that water plays a vital part in helping us to learn and to maintain concentration. We ask that each child brings in water in a named bottle every day.
We are part of the government ‘Fruit Scheme’, which provides a fruit or vegetable daily for infant age children. However, if you wish, you may provide your child with a fruit or vegetable snack, ready prepared and easy to eat, in a small container.
