School Meals

Although some children bring a healthy packed lunch we encourage our children at St Michael’s to enjoy a freshly cooked meal from our school kitchen. The menus for school dinners run on a three week cycle  with a main course and a vegetarian option these are changed seasonally. School dinner cost £2.10 per day or £10.50 per week which should be paid on a Monday in advance.
We also offer the opportunity for children who normally have a packed lunch to have a school dinner on a Wednesday { Roast Day} and on a Friday {Chip Day}.
Currently all children in Reception, Year 1 and year 2 are entitled to a free school meal as part of the Governments’ universal Infant free school meal scheme, the vast majority of children have cooked school meals and we hope to increase this further with our new choices and meal options. {Grab & Go’s} In order to ensure that children have a greater choice we will begin offering the children a Grab & Go option {available on a Mon, Tues & Thurs} Children may choose a sandwich with Cheese, Egg Mayo, Ham or Tuna filling. We will continue to work with the children to encourage them to eat well and at least try the different meals that we provide.
To help us ensure we have the correct meals prepared for your child we will be asking parents to discuss with their child which meals choices they would like for the following week. Every Friday you will be asked to send in a meal choice order form. { If you choose to have Grab & Go on a Mon, Tues or Thurs}. Wherever possible we try to keep to our menus but these maybe subject to change if necessary. You can download our menus and Grab & Go order forms from our website.
If your child has any dietary requirements please let the office know and we will try our best to accommodate this.
