Lunch times are an important part of the day, when children have the opportunity to mix with children from other classes. The children often chose to sit on mixed age tables, with the older children taking responsibility for the younger ones.
Our hot school lunches are provided by Limes Farm, a small family-run company based just outside Banbury.
Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM)
If you have a child/ren in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, they are entitled to a free school lunch every day under the new Universal Infant Free School Meals government initiative. Please let the office know if you do NOT wish your child to have a free lunch or to advise of any special dietary requirements.
Hot Lunches for Children in Key Stage Two
If you have a child/ren in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6, lunch costs £3 and should be ordered from Limes Farm. Meals must be ordered and paid for in advance using the order forms which can be obtained from the office.
If you do not wish your child to have a school lunch, they may of course bring in a nutritious packed lunch.
Free School Meals
Registering for free school meals benefits both your child/ren and the school. If your child does not have free school meals, but you think that they may be eligible because of your family’s circumstances or income level, please contact the school office and ask for an application form. Even if you do not take up free school meals, but are eligible for them, your child will be able to benefit from pupil premium support.
Please note that if your child is in Reception to Year 2 and receives a free lunch under the UIFSM initiative, they should still be registered for free school meals if appropriate, so that they (and the school) benefit from the additional funding available.
