Aspens understand how important making the lunch decision is. You want to make sure that they eat at lunchtime, what they have is nutritionally balanced and that it fuels the rest of their learning day. If your child is not having school dinners then why not give them a try? They cost just £2.45 for KS2 children and of course, since September 2014, KS1 children eat for free!
Bubble & Squeak are Aspens school meal characters and they pop up throughout the term when there is a special menu and help to educate them around the importance of eating well. As our partnership with Aspens develops we will be able to offer children more opportunities to get hands-on with different foods with a spot of cooking thrown in for good measure!
Free School Meals
Not to be confused with the free school meals for all KS1 pupils (as of 1st September 2014), it is vital that all Key Stage 1 pupils who are eligible to claim Free School Meals are registered in order for schools to receive the Pupil Premium funding.
The 'Free Schools Meals Application Form' is available as a download below. Parents/carers can now complete one application for all of their children – whether it is for Free School Meals (so Year 3 and above who must pay for their school lunches) or for their child’s school to receive Pupil Premium only (i.e. for KS1 children who already receive a free school lunch).
