At Kippax North Primary School we pride ourselves in supplying children with excellent food. We feel that it is one of the most important parts of a child’s life - to eat properly. Eating a healthy diet enables a child to live life to the full and gives them a better performance all round specifically helping with their concentration levels – which in turn affects achievement.


So we encourage all of our children to have a school dinner. We have a high uptake of school dinners at our school; it is good to know that our children are getting a well-balanced and healthy school meal.

 

We have a bespoke menu with three daily options. These meals use fresh produce and are cooked on the premises. The menus have been created by the school in conjunction with the catering agency. Cooked meals are served by Mrs Carrier and the kitchen staff.  Children select meals from a menu using the “band” system.

 

Please let the office know in writing if your child has any special dietary requirements.

 

Dinner Money – from September 2017

The price of a school meal is:

                        Foundation One - £2.20 per day

                        Foundation Two - Year 2 - Free under the universal FSM scheme

                      Year 3 - Year 6 - £2.20 per day

 

School dinners are a non-profit making scheme and it is therefore important that dinner money is paid promptly. Dinner money can be paid online via school money, by debit or credit card at the office or by telephone. Please contact the office if you require further information about paying.

 

Some children prefer to bring a packed lunch from home. We would remind you that healthy eating is the building block for a healthy life for our children and request that sugary drinks are not sent in and treats are limited. Water is provided.

 

Meals are eaten in the hall in the lower building and the children are supervised by a team of assistants.

 

There are special arrangements for our youngest children starting full-time school.  The school day seems very long for our new pupils and we request that they are taken home for lunch for the first complete week.  When they start staying for lunch they are supervised by our mid-day supervisory staff. They are also helped by volunteers from Year 6 pupils who '‘look after the little ones’ until the little ones are ready to look after themselves. This is a treasured job.
