Please be aware that we have pupils in school with nut allergies – we would appreciate your assistance by not sending your child to school (or on trips) with food containing nuts.
Please cut up foods which could potentially cause choking eg grapes, cherry tomatoes - thank you!

*The cost of school meals has increased by 10p due to increased food and delivery costs*

Please ensure your child's dinners are paid for in advance via ParentPay (preferred method of payment), or by sending payment to the school office. Please make cheques payable to St. Peter's C of E Academy, stating your child's name and what the payment is for on the back. We would be grateful if cheques for dinner money do not include amounts for other payments.
We're proud of our Year 6 children who ‘take care’ of our younger children at lunchtime. Helping to serve food, encourage table manners and being role models to pass on our Take Care legacy
Milk (KS1 & KS2)
If you would like your child to receive milk and they are not already registered, please go online and register your child for school milk at www.coolmilk.com. If you require a paper form please contact the office. The subsidised price is around £14 per term for over-fives.
Preschool and Reception children receive daily milk in school, free of charge.
Fruit is provided as a morning snack in school for Preschool, Reception and Key Stage 1 children free of charge. It is also available for Key Stage 2 children by completing the 'Fruit request' on the Activities and Clubs form, at a cost of around £8 for the term.
If your child prefers a packed lunch we encourage a healthy balanced lunch box, *see image example below. Government guidelines suggest this also. To prevent potential choking please cut up food items which may potentially cause choking eg grapes, cherry tomatoes.
Staff are regularly trained in choking recovery and First Aid. We ask children if they are choking or are sitting next to someone who appears to be choking to stand up and wave their arms above their head to gain attention.
