School Meals at Oakfield Primary

Starting Primary School for the first time is an important and exciting step for your child. Schools are ideal places to encourage children to eat healthy options so at Oakfield Primary School is supported by the fully trained catering staff in the preparation of healthy and tempting menus that meet current nutritional guidelines.

The aim is for children to have a pleasing, positive education experience where they can enjoy healthy food in a safe and nurturing environment. The school menu is a single choice menu, offering vegetarian or a meat meal. The menu is offered on a week cycle, changed each term. Variations to this menu occur when the school are supporting specific themes such as Road Safety Week or celebrating calendar dates, such as Yorkshire Day, Diwali or Bonfire Night.

Parents can make payment for school meals via the internet. Login details are available once your child has been admitted to the school. The cost of a meal is £2.20.

During the lunchtime break the children are supervised by 8 midday supervisors.

Where children prefer to bring a packed lunch to school, a beaker of water is provided, but children can bring an alternative drink in a plastic bottle or paper carton. At Oakfield Primary we pride our self in promoting healthy eating and therefore do not allow fizzy drinks, drinks in glass bottles, energy drinks, chocolate bars or sweets in packed lunches.

Allergens

In December 2014, The EU Food Information for Consumers Regulation (EU FIC) came into force.

As a school we will be required to keep records of all allergens used in school to which children could come into contact.

School’s catering team now need to provide information about 14 allergenic ingredients used in the foods that are provided within the school. Food allergens cannot be removed by cooking that’s why it is essential to check and ask for allergen information to make sure that the food your child eats is safe for them.

Food allergens can be life threatening. If your child has a food allergy, the only way you can manage it is to avoid the foods that make them ill. Please speak to a member of our school catering team if you have any concerns about the food that your child is eating at school.

Snacks

Key stage 1 children receive a piece of fruit or vegetable, provided by the local authority, each morning break.

Key stage 2 children are invited to bring a healthy snack, consisting of a piece of fruit, vegetable or 2 plain biscuits. In order to support the School’s Healthy Eating programme, confectionary such as chocolate bars, chocolate coated biscuits, savoury snacks such as crisps or sweets will not be allowed.

E-Safety

Information and Guidance

We take e-safety very seriously. Every year group in school is taught e-safety as part of the curriculum, learning about the following examples:

What to share and what not to share.
Using e-mails safely.
Keeping passwords secure
Safety using apps and websites where photos are shared.
This is not an exhaustive list and shows some of the items we teach.

We do appreciate however that sometimes what we teach does not always make its way home. Our children are aware of and use a variety of apps which could pose potential risks. The numbered links show where you, as parents/carers, can get extra information should you like to find out how you can ensure your child’s safety online while at home.
