At Strawberry Fields, we operate a 'dinner band' system, meaning that children choose their meals from one of four options every morning. This helps to reduce food waste and ensures children receive a meal they like. Each day there are four choices:
RED - a hot meal
GREEN - a vegetarian hot meal alternative
YELLOW - a sandwich or baguette (fillings vary each day)
PURPLE - a jacket potato (fillings a vary each day)
As you are probably aware, ALL children in Reception and Years 1 and 2 (KS1) have beenare eligible for a free school meal.
School meal prices for other year groups are as follows:
Nursery £2.30 per day
Year 3 to 6 £2.40 per day
All meals must be paid for in advance via your ParentPay account at www.parentpay.com or at your local Pay Point. Parents and carers must be in credit with their ParentPay account, at all times.
If you have not already been provided with your ParentPay Login details, please contact the school office.
Should the ParentPay balance fall below £0, and the account be in debit, the parent/carer will receive a reminder via ParentPay.
Should a debt increase to £20, a letter will be sent home explaining that if the account is not settled the child will have to move to packed lunches. Please get in touch with the school office and we will help if possible.
An example of our rotating school lunch menus are shown below, for your information.
