Click to View the School Meals Menu Spring 2020

 

Healthy school meals, cooked on the premises, are available each day using locally sourced fresh produce wherever possible. There is a three weekly rolling multiple choice menu (changed each term) detailing each day's choices

  • Option 1 – The main hot school meal option
  • Option 2 – Melt option (melt sandwich / jacket potato/ pasta/ sausage roll)
  • Option 3 – Sandwich Plate option (comes ready plated with sandwich; veg sticks/salad; daily side; traybake/jelly; carton of juice)  
  • Or Packed lunch from home - but in the interests of safety, no glassware or fizzy drinks are allowed. (The children who bring packed lunches take home any uneaten food as an indication to their parents of their lunch-time appetite. )

  

      Under the Government Universal Infant Free School Meals Scheme all children in Reception to Year 2 inclusive are currently automatically entitled to a free school meal, regardless of family income.   Charges apply for children in Year 3 onwards  (currently £2.50 per day).   Some families who meet certain criteria can apply to North Yorkshire County Council for free school meals. If you think you may qualify please visit https://www.northyorks.gov.uk/free-school-meals  for more information and an application form.  Alternatively, you can contact the school office for help or a paper copy of the form.

 

We primarily use an online payment system called ParentPay, www.parentpay.com to collect payment for meals.  Each parent has an individual log in to use this system.  We can also accept payment through PayPoint card, by debit card or, by cash / cheque.    Please note that payment should always be made in advance.

 


New starters in their first six weeks are accompanied by Year 5 children who act as Big Friends. This is a happy experience for both parties. Big Friends can be distinguished by their red baseball caps.

Free School Meals

Free school meals are available to children whose parents are in receipt of one or more of the following benefits:

  • income support
  • income-based job seeker's allowance
  • income-related employment and support allowance
  • child tax credit with an income of less than £16,190 and not in receipt of working tax credit
  • support under part VI of the immigration and asylum act 1999
  • guarantee element of state pension credit.

Where parents are entitled to working tax credit during a four week "run on" period immediately after their employment has ceased, or after they have started to work less than 16 hours per week, their children are entitled to free school meals.

Children who receive income support or income based jobseeker's allowance in their own right are also entitled to free school meals. 

Should you meet the above criteria, you can apply by using the application form available at  http://www.northyorks.gov.uk/article/25811/Free-school-meals .

Applications are usually processed very quickly.  If your child is entitled to free school meals you will receive a letter confirming the date when the meals will start. The school is also notified that your child is entitled to free school meals. In the meantime, you should continue to pay for school meals until confirmation comes through. Schools may be able to arrange a reimbursement of any monies paid whilst your entitlement is being confirmed.

If you are not entitled to free school meals you will be notified in writing.

New developments  

With effect from24th March 2014 we are introducing an additional school provided meal option in the form of a healthy packed lunch.  We will continue to provide 3 other choices, ie menu main of the day, vegetarian option and jacket potato.  The packed lunch needs to be ordered by the children the day before.  Please see the letter here which gives more information.  If you do not want your child to have the cold option at all or want to set a limit on the number of days allowed please let us know via the website contact link below or in writing or by phone on 01748 822794.   You can also follow our catering team on Twitter. The link is http://twitter.com/RMSkitchen
