School Meals and Healthy Snacks



Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM)   

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a 'free' cooked nutritious meal or sandwich. A dessert  and fresh water is included. Our expectation is all children will have a school meal. 

Our school meals are provided by Telford and Wrekin School Meals service please click here for the school menu.

The school meals team will cater for children who require a special diets due to medical, cultural or religious reasons.

Each child will receive a cooked meal automatically. However sandwiches need to be ordered a week in advance so please ensure that your order is placed with the school office by 9:00am each Friday.  Sandwich forms are available from the school office or you can access one from here.

What are the benefits of this scheme?

Better health – a cooked school lunch or sandwich gives the children the essential vitamins and minerals they need to help them to grow, develop, fight infection and have the energy to lead a happy and healthy life.

Better achievement and behaviour

There’s a link between what children eat at lunchtime in school and how they focus with their learning in the afternoon.  Lunchtime routines encourage children to sit down together, which develops social skills and encourages them to try new foods.

National Fruit Scheme

Our school is part of the National School Fruit Scheme and each child receives a free item of fruit daily, which helps your child achieve 5 day. The fruit is offered during the morning break.

Water is freely available throughout the day from the mains water coolers. In Early Years, children have their own cup and are encouraged to pour water from a jug at the snack table. In Key Stage 1 children are encouraged to bring water bottles into school.

School Milk

Children have access to free school milk which is available twice a week.

Chocolate, sweets and other snacks are not allowed in school. Fruit juice is not allowed. We ask that parents do not send in cakes and sweets as birthday or holiday treats due to allergies.
