A message from Norse regarding Brexit:-
“As we are now approaching the end of January, we thought it may be useful for you to have further assurances around your school meal provision after Brexit.
We hope it will be a case of ‘business as usual’ but will, of course, communicate any changes or menu adjustments in the coming months as promptly as possible.
Please do speak to your Account Manager (via the school office) if you have any queries.”
Our school meal provider would like to assure you that they fully adhere to the school food standards, with their Primary School Menu being accredited as Bronze level Food for Life by the Soil Association.
“We are extremely proud of the fact we source the majority of our ingredients from local suppliers and we offer your children freshly cooked, well-balanced meals every school day.”

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.
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.
