Healthy lunch guidance for parents
If you think you need ideas for your child's packed lunch, remember you can include:
Our Dining Hall on KS1
School lunches are healthy, well balanced and nutritious. They contain the essential vitamins and minerals a child needs to help them grow, develop, fight infection and have the energy to lead a happy and healthy life.
Menus are nutritionally analysed and approved by a nutritionist to meet the new guidelines which have nutritional standards.
The menu changes each term and these are sent home and are on the school website. They run on a 3 week cycle.
We are a 'cashless' school and do not collect money. Every parent has a Parent Pay account and this will need topping up regularly in order to ensure sufficient funds are in your child's account for them to purchase a meal.
I am delighted to let you know about a new, quick and convenient way to top up your ParentPay account; from January 2014, you will be able to use a top-up machine (Cash Loader) that we have had specially installed in the reception of our Infant Site/Children’s Centre.
All you have to do:
Just enter your unique PIN security number – please speak to one of our receptionist for details of your PIN no. – on the keypad, followed by the # sign (located in the bottom right hand corner of the keypad) and you’ll have access to your personal account. Once in, you can instantly top-up your ParentPay account, as well as view your current balance.
Full instructions on how to use the machine can be found just beneath the keypad. You can also, of course, change your PIN No if you require. Simply advise a member of our school office team and they will arrange for you to receive a new one.
We hope that you find this new payment method quick, easy-to-use and really convenient. If you need any assistance please do not hesitate to speak to a member of our school office team.
