Our school has maintained Healthy School Status and we encourage children to lead a healthy lifestyle.
We are delighted to be part of the Fruit for School Scheme for the Early Years and Key Stage 1. We have fresh fruit delivered to the school throughout the week which the children eat at playtime. Children may bring in fresh fruit, vegetables or a bread based snack to keep them going through the morning. NO NUTS, as we have children with severe nut allergies.
Our school meals are provided by Chefs In School (click on the link) and are cooked daily by our school cook. School dinner menus are changed weekly. A copy of the school menu is displayed on the notice boards and in the school hall and the children are encouraged to select a balanced meal from the menu.

For students in our nursey, payments for school meals are done through our parent portal ARBOR Cheques should be made out to "St Michael's CE Primary School". Cheques should be put in a sealed envelope marked with your child's name and class and handed in to the school office. We no longer accept cash payments for school dinners.
If payment is missed for two consecutive weeks a reminder will be sent to you.
If you are receiving either of the following you are entitled to apply for free school meals for your child:
- Income Support
- Jobseekers Allowance
Please speak to the school office. Your application will be treated confidentially.
We have a healthy lunch policy and do not allow sweets, nuts, chocolate or fizzy drinks. We suggest a sandwich, yoghurt and a piece of fruit. Children should bring water to drink. Please ensure that your child's lunchbox is clearly labelled with their name.
For ideas for packed lunches look at the Parent's lunchbox leaflet.
