Hot School Meals starting after half term
We are delighted to announce that after half term, there will be a hot lunch menu on offer to our schools. (We will no longer have the packed lunch option.) The hot meals will still be served directly to the children so most classes will still be eating in their rooms, with a couple of our youngest classes eating in the hall.
Free School Meals For Every Infant Child
From September 2014, every Infant aged child will receive a free school meal. You no longer need to apply for this. However, as the school receives additional funding for children who would have been eligible for a free meal under the previous system, we still encourage everyone to complete a School Lunch Registration Form. This will allow the school to receive a grant of £1,300 per child to support learning. These forms are available from the office.
Special dietary requirements can be catered for if we have the details in advance.
Free Fruit or Veg Snack
Currently, the NHS sponsors a free piece of fruit or vegetable for every Infant child every day, which we give out at morning playtime. Children can bring their own fruit if they'd prefer. No other snack is permitted.
Junior School payment for lunches
Please note new price of £2.10 per meal effective from September 2013. Payment for lunches needs to be made using the Tucasi online payment system. Each child is given a unique online code which you use to register an account at www.scopay.com/polehampton-jun Additional children can be linked to one account, even if they are at different schools. (This link is also needed on the home page for the payment button next to the Twitter and search ones)
