Dinners

Children may choose to have a hot dinner, which is freshly cooked on-site or a packed lunch.

Hot Dinners

School dinners for infant school aged children are now free and these are made to order every day in our school kitchen by our cook, Mrs Mulholland. The menu is nutritionally balanced and offers lots of children's favourite dishes.  There are two main course choices on Monday and Tuesday and from Wednesday to Friday there is the additional choice of a filled panini.   

Children will select which meal they would like at the start of the school day and at lunchtime will be given a coloured wrist band to wear to show if they have chosen Menu A, B or Menu C.  Our children really like wearing these wrist bands! 

If your child is on sandwiches and would like to start having dinners then please contact the Office. If your child is on dinners but would like to change to sandwiches then please note the Cook usually needs 2 weeks notice; please contact the Office to discuss this.

Free School Meals

Although all children in Reception, Year One and Year now get a free school meal your child may be eligible for free milk if you get certain benefits. You can find out more by visiting:

http://www.kirklees.gov.uk/community/education-learning/schoolmeals.shtml 

or by visiting Dewsbury Town Hall or ringing 01484 221919. 

If you are able to claim free school meals and milk then please do so, as by registering for it the school will then recieve extra funding called the Pupil Premium  grant. We use this to pay for extra hours for teaching assistants and buying new resources, so it really does make a big difference to us. 

Packed Lunches

Children may choose to bring a packed lunch with them. These should be in a sturdy lunchbox, clearly marked with the child's name. We ask that lunchbox choices should be as healthy as possible- no fizzy drinks or chocolate bars. If your child does not like crusts on sandwiches then please cut them off, as this can stop children eating what you have provided.
