WE ARE A NUT FREE SCHOOL
Our new school meal providers are Edwards & Blake. –
Edwards & Blake are delighted to be providing the catering services at Little
Paxton Primary School. We are a leading contract caterer and since 1998 we’ve
put food quality at the heart of all we do with fresh, healthy, nutritious ingredients
at the core of our business from day one. We’re passionate about great quality
food, local sourcing, excellent service, driving innovation and delivering great
value to our clients and pupils. Our food is freshly cooked every day in the
kitchens in which we operate and we strive to make every mealtime experience
delicious, nutritious and fun!
There is a three-weekly cycle of meals which promotes and encourages healthy eating and follows guidance on Nutritional Standards for School Lunches.
All Key Stage 1 children are entitled to a paid school meal (at no cost to the parent). This is called Universal Infant Free School Meals.
Key Stage 2 children’s meals will cost £2.25 per day per child and must be paid for in advance. If a dinner has been booked but your Key Stage 2 child goes home e.g. poorly, after 11am on that day, then the meal unfortunately will still be charged to the parent/carer as the kitchen will have prepared it. Children are also able to bring in a packed lunch but parents and carers should be aware that there is no cold storage facility. Please ensure that either iceblocks or suitable food is supplied.
School meal payments can be made by cash/cheque in a named envelope via the class teacher or via our online payment system School Gateway – www.schoolgateway.com

Playtime Snacks We are signed up to the Health Promoting Schools Initiative. As part of this we have a healthy eating policy. Sweets, biscuits and crisps are not allowed to be eaten at break-times. A piece of fruit is quite acceptable as an alternative. We participate in the County Initiative of offering a free piece of fruit or vegetable each morning break for our Key Stage 1 and Foundation pupils. In addition to this our foundation children receive a drink of milk free each morning as part of the COOLMILK scheme.
