All of our meals are cooked on site by Oasis Catering.
The Oasis Catering team works tirelessly to make sure children have an exciting and balanced menu available. School dinners cost just £2.30 a day and this is paid for on Parentpay. It is often helpful for parents to discuss the menu with their children.
Universal Free School Meals (UIFSM)
Universal free school meals have been introduced in September 2014 which means that if your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, they will automatically receive a free school meal every day.
More details of this can be obtained from the school office.
Free School Meals (FSM)
The school can get extra funding if you are in receipt of any of the financial support below. This funding is paid directly to the school via the local authority and can be used, for example, to support additional resources and increasing teaching assistant hours. This is for pupils of all ages, including those already eligible for UIFSM (outlined above).
If you think you qualify for 'Free School Meals' (which is different/in addition to the Reception/Y1 and Y2 Universal Infant Free School Meals - yes we know it is confusing!)....FIND OUT MORE AND APPLY HERE. It is worth a try - the school will receive additional funding if you are eligible and your child/children will continue to receive Free School Meals from Y3+. Please let us know if you are eligible as we can help you apply too.
