Lunchtime Requirements for September 2019
You may or may not be aware that Universal Free School Meals come to an end when your child leaves Year 2. If you would like your child to continue with school meals in Year 3, a charge of £2.30 per meal would be made payable and entered onto your Parent Pay account. This is unless your child is eligible for a free school meal.
If you would prefer your child to swap and bring a packed lunch each day, please email me at: email@example.com by Monday 22nd July 2019.
If we do not receive any notice advising of a change, your child will stay on their current lunchtime choice and if required will be charged for the meals taken.
Please feel free to contact me with any queries, or to double check the meal choice we have for your child.

We have chosen Fresh Pastures Limited, t/a School Milk UK, to supply our school milk from the start of the new term. If you would like your child to receive milk at school, you can register online at www.schoolmilkuk.co.uk. If you opt into this scheme, your child will receive a 189ml carton of fresh chilled semi-skimmed milk each school day, to drink mid-morning. The cost of this milk depends on the number of school days in each term (accounting for inset days, bank holidays and school holidays) and is payable in advance prior to each half term, or you can pay for the full academic year in advance. You can pay for your child’s milk online using PayPal or a credit or debit card in four easy steps. Please visit the School Milk UK website at www.schoolmilk.co.uk for details on how this scheme works and how to register, order, pay and manage your account online.
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.
Please do register your child with School Milk UK as soon as possible to ensure your child continues to have fresh milk daily. If your child qualifies for free school meals and you would like them to have free milk, please let me know via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Those who wish their child to receive milk, and have not yet registered, please do get in contact with our administrator Cool Milk on 0844 8542913, or alternatively visit their website www.coolmilk.com
For your information any payments made by Tuesday 5pm to Cool Milk should result in your child receiving milk the following Monday. Payments made after Tuesday at 5pm, would result in your child receiving milk two weeks later.
WE CAN ONLY GIVE MILK TO CHILDREN ON THE WEEKLY DRINKING LIST, WHICH WE RECEIVE FROM COOL MILK. IF YOUR CHILD IS NOT RECEIVING MILK AND YOU HAVE PAID, PLEASE CONTACT COOL MILK ON THE NUMBER ABOVE.

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.
