Eating a hot school meal is a great idea. Our lunches are healthy, nutritious and the cost is kept low at £2.25 per day.
If your child has a special diet, allergy or diet restriction we do our best to cater for their needs. They wear a small lanyard to ensure that they are served the correct meal. The catering staff are friendly and get to know the children’s names and dietary needs quickly so the service has a family feel to it.
Nursery children are to bring in a packed lunch but this is being reviewed. Here is the menu for children in Reception and Key Stage 1:
During the period where COVID restrictions are in place, children in Key Stage 2 will have their school dinners in classrooms. Here is the menu for Key Stage 2 children:
Paying for lunches
Payment for lunches is due in advance, by the latest Monday morning, for the week ahead. Unfortunately credit is not offered by the school and arrears are not allowed to be built up.
We are striving to go cashless in school as much as possible and our ParentPay system is a quick and easy way to allow you to top up your child's lunch money online with no need to queue at the school office!
You can pay for more than a week at a time (on a termly or half-termly basis) on Scopay or by cheque (made payable to ‘Telferscot Primary School’).
If you accidently forget to pay you will be sent a reminder. Please remember to pay promptly.
Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM)
Currently all children in Reception, Year One and Year Two automatically receive a free school meal which is funded by the government. You do not have to apply for access to these meals as part of the UIFSM scheme, however if you believe you are eligible for free school meals then please still apply as it is important that we have the correct information in school.
Free School Meals
If you are eligible for free school meals then authorisation can be arranged at the school office. Please speak to the office staff for which documents you need to bring in to prove eligibility.
