From September 2014 healthy, hot dinners are provided by Trafford LEA free of charge to all Infant Children.
Please note we purchase our school meals from Stamford Park Junior School. Menus change on a 3 weekly cycle and vegetarians are catered for.
Further information can be found on the Junior School website via: http://www.spjs.org.uk/school-meals/
Our roast dinners rotate between gammon, turkey, chicken, roast pork and toad in the hole.
Home baked desserts are made fresh daily. We have made every effort to reduce the sugar content in line with government guidelines and often substitute sugar with fruit and vegetables (beetroot, coconut & parsnips being our current choices). Desserts include shortbread, cookies, crumble & custard, cake, banana brownie, raspberry flapjack, carrot cake and many others.
Please note. There may be occasional changes to these menus, due to deliveries, particularly at the beginning of and end of terms.
Wherever possible we shall endeavour to give Parents notice of these changes. Salad, fruit and sandwich options are always on offer.
All our meat products are Red Tractor Farm Assured (see below) and all recipes are well within government reduced salt and sugar guidelines.
Red Tractor was established in 2000 and has grown to become the UK’s biggest farm and food standards scheme, covering all of animal welfare, food safety, traceability and environmental protection.
If you are providing a packed lunch then a small insulated bag is the best carrier. Please note that we do not allow fizzy drinks, sweets or chocolate and we must request NO NUTS OR PEANUT BUTTER as we have children in school for whom contact with nuts can be fatal. Grapes should be cut in two.
We require one weeks notice to move on to school meals from packed lunches and visa versa.
Regarding Birthday Treats
In keeping with our school policy on healthy eating we request that sweets are not sent into school as birthday treats.
If you would like your child to celebrate their birthday a suggestion has been made that they bring in a book to add to the class library which all their friends in class can share. We have designed a small template which can be placed in the front of the book to show that it was a gift from a particular child. This of course is completely voluntary. There is no expectation that parents need to send anything in to school when it is their child’s birthday.
