School Meals

Weekly school menus are on a rotation of three weeks. 

Trafford provide a suggested menu and our wonderful Kitchen Supervisor makes some adaptations for our children, based on feedback from school council. 

 

Menus are reviewed each term and may be affected by supplies not being available, but every effort is made to give suitable alternatives. The kitchen staff work very hard to provide tasty, healthy meals that children enjoy.  Please inform the school office of any diagnosed allergies or food intolerances.

 

If you would like to change your child's lunch choice from school dinner to packed lunch or vice versa, please send an email to mgarside@bowdoncs.org. Changes are made on Mondays and the office will need a minimum of a week's notice.

Universal Infant Free School Meals

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are eligible for universal infant free school meals.  Although your child will automatically receive free meals, please register with the local authority if your are eligible under the criteria for older pupils.  This registration brings funding into school called Pupil Premium.  Each child in receipt of Pupil Premium will be allocated £100 towards the costs of school trips and uniform.

 

Pupil Premium and Free School Meals

If your child is eligible for ‘free school meals’ and you register them for this, we’ll receive extra funding called ‘pupil premium’. We use this extra money to improve the educational provision and resources at the school. 

What is pupil premium funding?

Pupil premium funding from the government is given to schools to help pupils reach their full potential, regardless of their background or financial situation. It’s provided for pupils who:

•    Are registered for free school meals
•    Have been registered for free school meals at any point in the past 6 years
•    Are, or have been, in care

•    Have parents in the armed forces
