School Meals cost £2.20 per day, £11.00 per week. All meals are cooked off-site and brought in on a daily basis. If you wish to order school meals for your child, please send the money on a Monday morning in a sealed envelope, marked with your child’s name, the amount enclosed and the days on which meals are required. Cheques should be made payable to ‘Aslacton Primary School.’ Parents in receipt of Income Support or Income Based Job Seekers Allowance may be entitled to claim for free school meals.
If your child does not wish to have a standard hot meal or to bring their own packed lunch, they can order a vegetarian meal, a school packed lunch or a jacket potato. For these options, we would like you to complete a form on a weekly basis to indicate your choices. This should be sent into school on a Monday morning.
