Where a child has dietary, cultural, medical or special educational needs which impact diet, we ask parents to discuss those needs with us, as well as fill in the Norse ‘Allergen Aware Registration Form’.

All children at Ormiston Cliff Park Infant Academy are entitled to a free cooked School Meal. We actively encourage all children to take up this opportunity. All children eat together in the hall.

Pupil Premium and Free School Meals

From September 2014 all children who are in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 in a state-funded school have been offered a free healthy school lunch. Additional money is available from central government for every child whose parent is receiving one of the welfare benefits listed on the form. It is therefore important to sign up for Pupil Premium, even if your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, so that your child’s school receives as much funding as possible.

We need information about you and your child, so that we can provide them with the best education and support, by making sure that the school receives all the government funding to which it is entitled. Additional funding for school trips, clubs, etc. may be available to children who qualify for Pupil Premium. Please complete the form (which you receive with your Admission Form) and return it to us as soon as possible. Thank you.

Packed lunches

There are facilities at the school for children to bring packed lunches. These should be packed in a plastic container clearly marked with your child’s name.

On Health and Safety grounds, our policy is that no peanut butter or nut products are permitted in school. In line with our Healthy Eating Policy, packed lunches should not contain sweets, fizzy drinks or chocolate bars. We encourage children to eat fruit and vegetables wherever possible.

Healthy eating policy

  • Each child is invited to bring a piece of fruit or vegetable for a healthy snack at morning break.
  • Children are encouraged to bring water bottles and drink regularly in order to support learning and health.
