At lunchtime the children may choose between:
- Having a hot school dinner, freshly cooked on the school site. Each day the children may chose between a meat based meal, a vegetarian meal, a jacket potato with a range of fillings or a prepared sandwich. Each day there is a choice of a hot pudding, yogurt or fruit. The children choose a coloured band to show what they are having for lunch and the meals are then cooked to order. Taylor Shaw's menus are on a 3 week rotation and the school calendar will make it clear which week we are on so you can discuss lunch choices with your child. All children from reception to Year 2 are provided with a free school meal under the Government Infant Free School Meal arrangement. Meals are currently £2.30 a day. This must be paid in advance and must be done through Schoolcomms. You may still send cash on Monday morning but please make sure it is in an envelope with your child's name and class on, stating clearly it is dinner money. Any cheques must be made payable to 'Sheffield City Council' for dinner money cheques.
- You may send a packed lunch from home. We would ask that you send your child with a healthy selection of food, try to include fruit and vegetables with only one sweet treat like a biscuit. No fizzy drinks please, water or juice is best. Please do not send too much food as we like the children to enjoy play as part of the lunchtime period.
NUT FREE SCHOOL
We have a number of children in school who have a severe allergy to nuts. In order to reduce the risk to those children who may suffer an anaphylactic reaction we aim to be a nut free school. As a nut free school, any foodstuffs with nuts or nut products should not be brought into school. Where many food items state 'may contain nuts', these items are permitted.
When preparing your child’s packed lunch please ensure that you do not include any products containing nuts. This includes items such as peanut butter, cereal bars with nuts,and Nutella. If you are unsure, please check the ingredients on the label.
- Going home for lunch. Children would need to be collected at 12 noon and be back in time for afternoon registration at 1 pm. Y5/Y6 lunchtime is from 12.30 pm to 1.30 pm. You would need to collect them from the office and need to enter the school from the top entrance on Marlcliffe Road.
