School meals and milk
Milk is available to all children in school, but is now accessed and paid for by parents through Cool Milk online service at:
School milk is free for children under the age of five. School milk may be free to children receiving or entitled to free school meals.
All children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 are entitled to a free school meal.
For children in Key Stage 2 payment for meals is required on a Monday morning for the week ahead via parent pay. The current price of a school dinner is £2.55 per day, £12.75 per week. Families in receipt of certain benefits are eligible to claim free school meals - applications should be made via DMBC website and click on apply for free school meals.
Children on school dinners now have the daily option of a hot meal, a vegetarian hot meal or sandwiches.
As food is ordered in advance, it is only possible to change your child’s meal arrangements at the beginning of every half term unless there are exceptional circumstances.
Winter Term Lunch Menu
As you are all aware, the school is now running a cashless system. This is why we asked for snack and baking money to also be paid through parent pay. It is a much more reliable system and safer too! The children are enjoying their snacks and it is running really well. We provide a range of snacks including fruit, yoghurts and cereal bars.
May we just remind you that children CANNOT bring their OWN snack. This causes many issues for the Teachers as it can cause arguments between pupils.
Please ensure payment is made at the start of the each half term so we are able to provide your child with a snack if you so wish. The cost for children in KS2 is £1.00 per week payable half termly i.e:7 week term =£7.00 and the cost for children in KS 1 is 50p per week also payable half termly i.e: 7 week term =£3.50.
The school’s successful Breakfast Club serves breakfast from 7:30am to 8:10am.
Meals are subsidised and cost £2.50 for cereal, toast and fruit juice. All children are supervised until 8:25am.
