We are proud to have renewed our Healthy Schools award status and incorporate the ‘daily mile’ into our routine each day for Year 1 – Year 6.
School meals are provided in school at a cost of £2.05 per day – £10.25 per week. Parents should ensure that their child brings dinner money in the packet provided. Cheques are made payable to Saltburn Primary School, with name & address on the back. Children absent on Monday must bring dinner money on the first day back to school. If a child is absent during the week any money is credited the following week.
To help with the smooth running of lunchtimes there are a few points to remember and expectations we have of the children.
From starting full time education children are able to have a meal in school. All systems require some independence on the child’s part, for example carrying a tray, choosing their food, using cutlery correctly. We have supportive staff who will help and guide where necessary and when needed, and we expect the children to listen carefully to their instructions and guidance. We have a cafeteria service with a choice of menu – hot main courses / salad bar and 2 sweets are available during lunchtimes and the opportunity to have “a taster” is given. Upper Foundation Stage start lunch at 11.50am, then other classes follows on a rota going into the dining halls. Please let us know of any dietary requirements.
We are part of the National Fruit Scheme which provides free fruit daily for Nursery to Y2. Any spare fruit is distributed free to Y3 – Y6 on a rota basis, but older children can access a range of fruit daily from our “Fruit shop”. As we are aware of the importance of maintaining hydration levels we encourage children to have a daily bottle of plain water. If necessary this can be topped up in school from our water machine/fountain. During the summer months parents have found it useful to cool/freeze the water to ensure a cool drink throughout the day. Bottles should be named and stored in the classrooms.
We provide milk free of charge to reception and nursery.
