School Meal Arrangements
Our meals are cooked fresh on the premises each day. We source all our fresh products from local suppliers and where possible from local producers. A menu is posted on this site each week giving the coming weeks menu and there is always a vegetarian option available. Water is available for the children to drink.
Dinner money is payable on Mondays each week in advance, or by cheque for the month or term ahead. The cost is £2.10 per day. Payments by cash, cheque or ParentPay. Cheques made payable to EFSPT T/A Epping Upland C of E Primary School. Dinner money should always be sent in an envelope with the child’s name and class on the front. The school is not allowed to offer dinner to children if the dinner money has not been paid, so please be punctual with payment.
Free school meals
Families on income support are entitled to free school meals for their children. An application form for free school meals can be obtained from the school office. The authorisation, however, is given by Essex County Council.
Children may not alternate between packed lunches and school dinners without prior notice. Packed lunches should contain a healthy, balanced meal. We do not allow sweets of any kind. The school expects that packed lunches meet the same stringent requirements that school dinners have to adhere to.
Packed lunches may include a drink or fruit juice or squash to be drunk with the meal but it must be in a plastic bottle or carton only. Fizzy drinks are not allowed. Packed lunches should be in a container that is clearly marked with the child’s name. The same requirements apply to packed lunches brought for school visits.
