School Meals and Lunchtime Arrangements

Our cook takes pride in serving varied and nutritious meals at lunchtime.  Lunches are cooked every day in our own school kitchen.

Meals are paid for weekly on Monday mornings.  The correct money should be placed in an envelope with the child's name and class clearly marked on it and it is to be placed in the zipped envelope in the classroom at morning registration.  Meal price £1.65 per day (£8.25 each week).  If you wish to pay by cheque, please make it payable to "Bradford Council ", and write the cheque card number on the back of the cheque.

Children may bring a packed lunch.  A drink of water is given to all children regardless of whether they have a dinner or bring a packed lunch.

If your child is going to be late and you still wish to order a dinner for your child, please ring and let us know as soon as possible.

It is expected that pupils will respond positively to all lunchtime staff as they would any other member of staff.  They deal with all lunchtime matters including first aid.

Children who cannot play safely at lunchtime will be asked to go home for their dinner.

Free Meals  top

FREE SCHOOL MEAL ENTITLEMENT  Please apply to Bradford Council or see contact information below.

Free School Meals pays for a school lunch for your child.

If your child attends a tax-payer funded nursery or school, full time and in the Bradford district you may be able to get Free School Meals.

You can apply for school meals if you receive:

  • Income Support
  • Income Based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income Related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Child Tax Credit with an annual income of less than £16,190, provided they are not receiving Working Tax Credit
  • the ‘Guaranteed’ element of the State Pension Credit
  • support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 (you will need to apply directly to the school not Bradford Council)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)
  • Universal Credit

This information has been taken directly from Bradford Council's website.   

School meals are free for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 - why do I still need to apply?
All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 get free school meals, but if you receive one of the benefits from the list above you may also get help with:
  • the cost of residential school trips (speak to school about this)
  •  school milk
  • school uniform costs (Uniform Assistance at Trinity All Saints Primary)
For each child registered for free school meals, schools receive a pupil premium of £1,300 (Primary schools) or £935 (Secondary schools) per year. This money is to help your child achieve their best at school.

Families may apply for free school meals by completing the online form on the Bradford Council website.  Please click - Direct Link to Bradford Council Benefit Overview and Online Application Forms

Alternatively you can contact the Bradford Council Benefits Services via telephone or e-mail for further assistance on  01274 432772 or benefits@bradford.gov.uk.    

 

Milk

We are offering 1/3 pint carton of milk daily on the following basis:

  • Children in Nursery and Reception (under 5 years) receive Free School Milk. There is no need to fill in the reply slip.
  • Children in Reception (aged 5 and over) and Year 1 – Year 6 receive subsidised milk and the cost depends on the number of weeks in the term. Letter advising parents of this option are sent out at the end of each term for the provision of milk for the following term. Reply slips and payment need to be received by the given deadline. Payments by cash or cheque are acceptable. Please make the cheque payable to Trinity All Saints Primary School.
  • If your child is entitled to Free School Meals (based on your circumstances and income, not the Universal Free Meal for all children in Key Stage 1), he/she will be entitled to Free School Milk but we will still require the completed reply slip.

 

Snacks at Playtime

At present, children up to the age of six receive a free piece of fruit or vegetable at playtime as part of the 'Free Fruit to School Campaign'. Children in Key Stage 2 (Year 3 to Year 6) are encouraged to bring a healthy snack, such as fruit or raw vegetables for their morning break.  As part of our Whole School Food Policy we are promoting the contents of a healthy lunch box for pupils and are discouraging parents/carers to include sweets, chocolate bars, crisps and fizzy drinks in a child's lunch box.
