We believe that the best option for children at lunchtime is to have a hot dinner, provided through our partnership with Chartwells. We expect that parents of children in Reception and Key Stage 1 will take up the option of the Universal Infant Free School Meal (UIFSM). This is because we believe that the hot school dinner option is much better for the children’s learning and health. We recognise the evidence that states:
Raglan is very fortunate to have a fantastic team producing delicious freshly prepared school dinners in our state of the art kitchen. Our meals meet new government standards and, as a result of this, Raglan consistently gets a 5 star rating.
Chartwells meals provide all the nutrients that children require through the week. They produce a menu which has a three-weekly cycle and is available for parents to view.
Children in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 are eligible for Universal Infant Free School Meals. In Year 3 an above, the school meals cost £2.20 per day (£11 per week).
Payments can be made online via the Schoolgateway or at the school office by cash or cheque – please send any payment in a clearly marked envelope.
