- Reception Intake 2021
We provide school dinners which are cooked at Thurlestone Academy. 70% of all our meals are made from scratch. All our meat is Red Tractor, we only use free range Eggs. We have Meat Free Mondays and are working with Food for Life and the Soil Association to achieve a Bronze award to recognise this!
Some children prefer to have a packed lunch. Please make sure that everything is unbreakable and drinks are watertight! We are trying to encourage the children to eat healthily and would ask that their lunch boxes reflect this.
Playtime fruit is provided to Key Stage 1 and we would ask that playtime snacks are provided by parents for Key Stage 2 to reflect our healthy eating policy.
There is a great menu which runs on a three week timetable and has lots of choice. A school dinner currently costs £2.45 per day, £12.25 per week.
All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 automatically get free school meals. Parents and guardians are encouraged to apply for free school meals when they enrol their child in school as this can help their child’s school to attract additional ‘pupil premium’ funding to support learning.
From Year 3 onwards, children whose parents are in receipt of any of the following benefits are entitled to free school meals:
