School Meals and Magic Breakfast
If your child is in Reception, Year 1 or 2, your child is entitled to Universal Infant Free School Meals. If your child is in Year 3, 4, 5 or 6, the cost of a school meal will be £2.30 per day / £11.50 per week.
In line with our ‘No-Debt’ Procedure, payments must be made in advance, or on a weekly basis, to avoid debts accumulating. Payments may be made online via Parent Pay - www.parentmail.co.uk. If you are not yet registered to this online payment system, please contact the school office, who will provide you with activation details. Alternatively, you may send in cash or cheque payments via your child. If paying by cheque, please make payable to ‘Northumberland Heath Primary School’. A copy of our ‘No-Debt’ Procedure can be viewed below.
If your child wishes to change their lunch time meal arrangement, please provide us with ample notice. This enables us to notify our kitchen staff, who will ensure enough food is ordered to cater for any additional children. Unfortunately, it is difficult to accommodate part time meal patterns (e.g. – 2 days school dinners/3 days packed lunch). Children should have school meals (or packed lunch) for all 5 days of the week - thank you for your anticipated co-operation.
Magic Breakfast, launched in January 2019, is a breakfast provision funded by the Department for Education to ensure each child has a healthy breakfast as fuel for learning.
Finally, please remember to keep us updated with regards any food allergies or dietary requirements your child has, so that we can pass this information on to our catering company and kitchen staff.
If you have any further queries with regards school meals, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
