We offer hot school meals at St George's which can be ordered in advance using the link below.
Currently, ALL Reception and Key Stage 1 children (Reception, year 1 and year 2), can benefit from free school meals under a government initiative. Every child in these year groups will still need to have a meal ordered via the link below for the days they are requiring a meal in school.
Our hot meals are provided by Chartwells and cooked on site. There is a choice of 3 tasty options to choose from every day, the main option, a vegetarian option or the alternative option.
Parents can pick and choose which days your child has which option so it doesn't have to be one type all term. You can also change the option booked by accessing your online account.
Please click the link below to access the ordering site for meals.
For those children who bring in a lunchbox, please note that we encourage a healthy, balanced meal and are a nut free school. The children have water cups and jugs on the table at lunch so it is not necessary to send them in with an extra lunchtime drink.
Please do not send in juice or squash. We would also prefer it if chocolate bars were a biscuit or wafer type and No sweets please.
The children in EYFS and KS1 eat their lunch at 12:15pm in the school hall. The children in KS2 go out to play at 12:25pm then eat their lunch at 12:45pm. Lunch time finishes at 1:15pm.
All children in Key Stage 1 will be entitled to Universal Free School Meals from September 2014.
However, for some of those children, schools will also be able to claim Pupil Premium, which will help provide further support for those children. The criteria for eligibility is the same as, and comes from, what is the free school meal criteria from Key Stage 2 onwards.
This criteria for eligibility is where parents/guardians are in receipt of one or more of the following benefits:
- Income Support
- Income-based Job Seekers' Allowance
- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- the Guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
- Child Tax Credit, provided you are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit, and have an annual gross income, of no more than £16,190 as assessed by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs1
- Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
