School Meals

A healthy school lunch, which is cooked on the premises, is served every day.

We encourage children and parents to subscribe to school meals so that children can share a nutritious lunchtime experience with their peers. A weekly menu is displayed on the notice board in the school restaurant.

Meal Information

For Reception and Years 1 and 2, school meals are free. For Years 3 to 6, the cost of lunch is currently £2.25 per day and we ask parents to pay weekly or half termly in advance, online via SCOPay. Special diets can be catered for, and drinking water is always available. Children may bring their own packed lunch from home, which should be brought in a suitable container and should not include chocolate bars, sweets or canned drinks.

Free School Meals

Please check your child’s Free School Meal eligibility. This is very important as the school gets extra funding for every eligible FSM child registered, which is more we can spend on their education. To apply, please complete and return our FSM Application form:

Choosing a Meal

Please fill in your child’s lunch preferences and indicate any allergies using the form below.

Children change from packed lunch to school dinners or vice versa half termly. We ask that parents inform the school office of any change. At lunch time the children are supervised by School Meals Supervisory Assistants or Teaching Assistants.

Allergies

At Osidge, we are aware that there are a number of children who suffer from allergies and we seek to ensure that all members of the school community are aware of the risks associated with some allergies and that steps are taken to avoid those risks. We ask parents not to give their children sandwiches or anything else in their packed lunch that contain nuts.

Milk

School milk is provided for free to all children under the age of 5 years.
