You can place an order for your child online.
It's very straightforward - simply click on Sue Brady Catering and order online.
You can order for two weeks at the click of a button or a term in advance.
Please order by Friday 29th December 2017, if you intend to order for the entire Spring term (known as Winter season menu by Sue Brady Catering).
The code for Free School Meals on the Sue Brady website is sbc16.
Children eligible for free school meals
The ordering process will be exactly the same for children who have free school meals. Just mark what you want on the menu, but don’t include payment. We have a list of those families claiming free meals and we will send payment for them. If you do claim free meals it is important that you keep your claim up to date, otherwise we won’t be able to pay for them.
Are you eligible for free school meals?
The answer is Yes for Children whose parents or carers are in receipt of one of the following:
• Income Support
• income-based Jobseeker's Allowance
• an income-related employment and support allowance
• Child Tax Credit and have an annual income that does not exceed £16,190 as assessed by HMRC.
• the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
Please call at the school office to collect a free school meals claim form. Do this well in advance because the benefit cannot be backdated.
FREE SCHOOL MEALS ALSO MEANS PUPIL PREMIUM. If you meet the criteria above for free meals then the school will also receive £1200 per year of pupil premium money. This is used to ensure that your child does not fall behind others in school. But you MUST let us know. Now that school dinners are free for younger children we have no other way of telling if you’re eligible for pupil premium.
School Lunches - FAQ
Is there a vegetarian option?
Yes - always. The vegetarian options follow the main option as closely as possible, e.g. using quorn instead of meat in a lasagne.
What about other special dietary requirements?
These are all catered for. Please write your requirements clearly on the order form e.g. “Gluten free please”.
I hope that this gives you all the information that you need. If you have any other queries, please ask at the office.
Initially we will send out menus to all children, so that you can see the food on offer. As time passes we will get to know the ‘regulars’ and will only send menus to them. You will always be able to pick a menu up from the school office or print one off from the company website.
