Further to my previous email regarding school milk for children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. As previously mentioned from the 16th April 2018, we can no longer offer your child milk free of charge.
Please note that under The Nursery Milk Scheme, children do not pay for milk until their fifth birthday. Free milk also applies to any child who qualifies for free school meals. If you feel your child is eligible please visit Leeds City Council website for more information.
If you would like your child to continue to receive milk until their fifth birthday, or if your child qualifies for free school meals and you would like them to receive milk please let me know as soon as possible.
If you require any help or assistance, please feel free to contact me.
Mrs A Milner
Manston Primary is a Healthy School with healthy eating being a high priority. Taylor Shaw, our catering contractor, have over 12 years experience providing high quality catering services to schools nationwide. Food is locally sourced, presented and served to appeal to young children. All meals are freshly prepared on site each day in the school kitchen, providing an innovative and well balanced diet for your child. We always have a salad bar option along with vegetarian and non vegetarian options. Please notify us if your child does have any special dietary requirements and we will do our utmost to accommodate them.
If your child has a medical appointment and will be attending school later in the morning and require lunch, please let your class teacher and Mrs Milner know in advance by letter. Your child can then be included in the daily figures to the kitchen.
If you child attends school and is taken home ill on a morning before 10.30am a charge for lunch will not be made. After this time - daily figures will have been submitted to the kitchen and a charge will be made.
Each week the lunchtime staff select children who displayed impeccable manners and excellent behaviour during lunchtime to join Mrs Quick for lunch. All children selected receive a certificate in recognition of this during our achievement assemblies.
As a healthy school, children are encouraged to bring a named water bottle into school should they be thirsty throughout the day. Water is also readily available from dispensers around school to replenish water bottles.
