Westover Green Community School

School Meals

School meals are provided by Aspen Catering. The meals are cooked at Haygrove School and brought into school and served in the Exmoor Hall.

Free school meals

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school meal.  This is called a Universal Infant Free School Meal.

Children in years 3, 4 5 and 6 are only entitled to free school meals if their families are in receipt of Income Support or Income-based Job Seeker's Allowance. 

Unfortunately if you receive working Tax credits you are not eligible for free school meals but if you have recently become unemployed, and are still receiving Working Tax Credits, you may be entitled. Please phone Somerset County Council on 0845 345 9122 for advice.

Application forms for free school meals are available from the School Office or can be downloaded by clicking on the links below:

Free School Meal Application Form

If your child is entitled to receive free school meals but chooses to bring a packed lunch from home, please complete a Free School Meal form as we may be able to receive Pupil Premium Funding for your child even if they do not eat a free school meal.

 

Packed lunches

Dining accommodation is provided for children who wish to bring and eat their own packed lunch in school.  Children may bring drinks, but fizzy drinks are not permitted. Please ensure your child's lunchbox is clearly named.

School Milk and Fruit

Children in the Reception classes are given free milk as part of an EEC grant.

Children in Reception and Key Stage 1 also receive fruit daily as part of a Government initiative.

For morning break, all children may bring a snack, but as part of our programme to encourage healthy eating we do not allow sweets, chocolate or biscuits. Water is freely available in the classrooms and also from the playground water fountains.
