School meals are eaten in the school hall and children with packed lunches also eat outside when the weather is fine. Packed lunches must be self-sufficient, i.e. children will eat from their packed-lunch boxes and a small plastic cup should be provided to drink from. Water is provided for drinking, and no drinks or juice should be brought into school.
Please be aware that as some children in school have nut allergies, nut products are not permitted in children's lunch boxes (peanut butter sandwiches, raisin and nut mix etc...)
Free School Meals and Universal Free School Meals
North Somerset have replaced the old free school meal (FSM) paper application forms with an online checker. Parents will have to apply online and will get an instant decision on eligibility. If successful, the system will generate a confirmation that parents can then print off and give to the school. Where parents do not have printers, we can accept either an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by coming into school and showing the confirmation to the admin office on a smart phone.
The FSM entitlement only lasts for one school term. This means parents will have to apply every term break (so 6 times per year). You will need to apply for each child individually as the online checker creates a system code for each child.
The new checker can be found at www.n-somerset.gov.uk/fsm This is the only way to apply for FSM. If you have not applied already this school year you will need to do so immediately, and again every holiday, otherwise the free school meal cannot be allocated to your child.
Even if your child is receiving universal free school meals because they are in Reception or KS1, please claim for free school meals if you are entitled to it as the school receives extra funding and free milk will be provided each day for each child - see leaflets below for more details:
Sandwiches from Chartwells
From 20th May 2019 Chartwells will be offering a sandwich option daily which will not need to be pre-ordered. Children will be able to choose when they reach the serving hatch whether to have a hot dinner or a sandwich bag. There will be a variety of baguettes, sandwiches and wraps and there will always be cheese and ham fillings. There will also be egg and tuna some days. There will also be vegetable sticks, dessert and fruit for the children to choose.
