School Meals AND MILK
We are very pleased to announce that our caterers, Twelve15, will be reinstating hot meals from Monday 4th July.
The meals will be transported from another school setting and served from our kitchen. This is an interim arrangement whilst Twelve15 seek to recruit permanent members of staff.
School lunches and meal choices can be ordered online at www.scopay.com/stjames-elstead.
You can order, amend or delete meal choices up to midnight before a meal is taken.
Please see our Weekly Menus page to enable you to make the best meal choice for your child.
Fixed Pattern Of Meals - The school can order a fixed pattern of meals for your child, whether this be every day or a part-time pattern. Please email the school office with your child’s name, weekly pattern and the date from when you would like this to start. This fixed pattern will remain in place until you email the school office at firstname.lastname@example.org and notify us otherwise. This pattern is populated on Scopay automatically at the beginning of each half-term and you may incur a charge if you have not asked us to cancel these meals.
Ad-hoc Meals - If your child would like school meals on an ad-hoc basis, please order these yourself through Scopay, but please remember to contact the school office if you would like an existing fixed pattern deleted.
Further information about school lunches can be found on the Twelve15 website.
Special Dietary Requirements
Twelve15 can cater for many special dietary needs, so if your child has a restriction for reasons of food intolerance, allergic reaction to the 14 recognised food allergens, and/or cultural and religious requirements, it is essential that you notify the school office before they can provide a school meal. Your child will not be able to access school meals until this process is completed, even in the event of a forgotten packed lunch, so please complete our Special Diet Form if your child has a special dietary requirement, even if you think this may not be relevant to you.
Please click on this link to complete the Special Diet Form if you have not already done so. Paper copies are available from the school office.
Children choosing to have a packed lunch eat alongside the children eating a school meal and we encourage parents to ensure that packed lunches contain a healthy meal. Sweets, chocolate, sugary drinks and glass containers are not permitted. No nut products are permitted due to severe allergies within school.
Parents can order a 175ml drink of milk for their child each day for a subsidised fee from the company, Cool Milk. Children under 5 and those eligible for free school meals do not need to pay.
