OWING TO SEVERE NUT ALLERGIES IN SCHOOL, WE DO NOT ALLOW NUTS
OR NUT PRODUCTS OF ANY KIND TO BE BROUGHT INTO SCHOOL.
SCHOOL MEAL FOR YEAR KS2 IN SEPTEMBER
Owing to the current Coronavirus Pandemic and Government guidance regarding social distancing it is unfortunately not possible in September to offer a hot lunch to pupils in Key stage 2 (Years 3, 4, 5, and 6). If you wish to purchase a school meal (or if your child is entitled to free school meals) and is in these year groups they will be offered:
a ham, cheese or tuna sandwich or baguette (years 3/4), (baguette and sandwich will be offered on alternate days.
ham, cheese or tuna baguette, sandwich or wrap (Years 5/6) (baguette and sandwich will be offered on alternate days.
Dessert, which will be fruit, yoghurt, cake/biscuit etc. The cake/biscuit will be as offered to KS1 on their menu found above.
At Southborough Primary School, we believe that the best option for children at lunchtime is to have the hot school dinner, provided through our partnership with Chartwells. We expect that parents of children in Reception and Key Stage 1 will take up the option of the Universal Infant Free School Meal (UIFSM). This is because we believe that the hot school dinner option is much better for the children’s learning and health. We recognise the evidence that states:
•Children are better prepared for learning if they eat well
•Children make more progress if they have eaten the right nutritional lunch
•Only 1% of packed lunches provide the correct nutrition
•Eating hot dinners is an important social occasion and the children learn vital social skills.
Chartwells meals provide all the nutrients that children require through the week. They produce a menu which has a three-weekly cycle and is available for parents to view. See above.

If your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 then he or she is eligible for Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM). In Year 3 and above, school meals cost £2.30 per day (£11.50 a week).
Payment can be made online via ParentPay.com (see link below) or by cheque (cash is not accepted) - please send any payment in a clearly marked envelope. ParentPay can also be used to pay for trips.
