School Meals

Wednesday 1st April 2020
 
From next week we will be moving to a system of providing supermarket vouchers to our families whose children are in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM). We will no longer be producing Grab Bags.
 
If you have applied to the council for Free School Meals and you meet the criteria, your child(ren) will qualify for this.
 
All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 qualify for Universal Free School Meals (UFSM). This is DIFFERENT to Free School Meals (FSM).  Only children whose parents/carers have applied and meet the criteria are included in FSM.
 
Sorry if this seems so confusing!
 
We very regularly encourage parents/carers of all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 to apply but very few do or have, unfortunately, as we, as a school, also receive funding for extra resources based on this.
 
Please bear with us to get this system up and running as we only received notification of it at 12.15am last night/this morning.
 
I am in school tomorrow if you have any questions (telephone) but I will be very busy trying to set this system up! Email me:

PLEASE SHARE THIS TO ALL OUR FAMILIES!
 
Thank you.

School Dinners.

It is our firm belief that all children and learners need a substantial (hot) meal in the middle of the day.

Meals and drinks are prepared in the school kitchen, which is run separately by a company called Facilities Management - owned by Bradford City Council. Any queries regarding school meals can be directed initially to the school office, who will put parents in touch with the kitchen.

All meals are served in the new school dining hall.  School meals cost £1.80 per day (£9 per week) payable in advance on Monday mornings.  Lunch money should be in a sealed envelope clearly marked with the child’s name and class and placed in the secure dinner money collection box in the front entrance hall.

Children may bring a packed lunch to eat.  If you choose to send your child with a packed lunch please note that glass containers and fizzy drinks are not permitted.  We also promote healthy eating and do not allow our children to bring chocolate as part of their school dinner.

Mrs Mclean is our Head Chef and is in charge of our school kitchen.

If you need to talk to the school kitchen about anything, especially payment of school dinners, then please call them direct on : 01274 642063.

This year our Christmas Lunch will be on Tuesday 10th December.  Halal and vegetarian options are always available.

Below are our weekly school dinner menus. Please note that children are encouraged to eat as much fruit, veg and salad as they want and are encouraged to try 'new' foods. Water is freely available on every table at all times.

PLEASE NOTE:  If the payment of dinner monies is forgotten or is not paid for 10 consecutive school days then your child will be expected to bring a packed lunch from the 11th school day until the arrears are settled.  You will receive reminders if dinner money payments are behind via ParentPay or letter.  If you have any concerns or difficulties, please contact the school kitchen on 01274 642063 or by email on kitchen@peelpark.bradford.sch.uk.

IF CHILDREN ARE SENT TO SCHOOL WITHOUT A PACKED LUNCH/SANDWICHES AND THE DEBT HAS STILL NOT BEEN PAID THIS WILL BE SEEN AS NEGLECT AND THE APPROPRIATE ACTION WILL BE TAKEN BY SCHOOL.
