School Meals & Playtime Fruit

Dinners
School dinners are provided and cooked on site by Stockton Council and cost £10.25 per week. All dinners should be paid for at the beginning of each week, on Mondays, with money placed in a named envelope (dinner money envelopes available at the school office)

Packed Lunches
Children can bring a healthy packed lunch as an alternative to a school meal - strictly no nuts, sweets or fizzy drinks. Please give the school office a week's notice of any intention to change from school dinners to packed lunch so that adjustments can be made to kitchen orders.

Free School Meals
If you think that you are entitled to free school meals for your child then you need to fill in a form available from the school office. Please note that free school meals cannot be given until the form is filled in and entitlement cannot be backdated.

Non-payment of dinner money
Any non-payment of dinner money is followed up every week. Parents will receive a reminder by phone and then by letter. If payment is not received within a week then the debt is passed onto the council to follow up,your child will no longer be able to have school dinners and you will be expected to provide a packed lunch.

Fruit at Playtimes
Children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 are provided with a piece of fruit at playtime as a healthy snack. Please remember to advise us of any allergies.

Children in Key Stage 2 can buy fruit at playtimes for 10p.
