At Alpington and Bergh Apton Primary School all children in Early Years and KS1 are entitled to a free hot school meal under the government’s Free School Meal initiative.
At present our meals are cooked for us off-site by NORSE catering and delivered to us each day. The meals are nutritionally balanced to ensure that pupils receive the accepted balance of food. Salad, bread and milk is also offered as an addition to the meal each day.
All the children dine together in the school hall regardless of them choosing to eat a hot meal or bringing in a packed lunch. They sit together in mixed age groups with the oldest children helping the youngest ones. We aim to create a “family atmosphere” where we wait for each other to finish before clearing away.
If you feel your child in KS2 is entitled to a free school meal please use the link below for information and guidance on how to apply or alternatively please see the school secretary for an application form.
Norse, our school meals provider have advised they will be extending the summer menu until after the October half term. “We have made this decision as the weather is quite often still quite warm in September. The new winter menu will then run until Easter 2019.” Therefore please do destroy your current menus! A copy of the schedule for next term is attached.
