The Price of school meals is £2.00 per day and payment for the week should be made on Monday. Children who are absent should bring the money on their return - they will be credited for any meals paid for but not taken. Please send the correct amount in a sealed envelope bearing the child's name. Cheques made payable to Oldham MBC. We are fortunate at St Edward’s to be able to offer midday meals cooked on the premises by our cook Mrs Maude. These meals are of a high standard and wide variety.
If you wish your child to change from school dinners to packed lunches, a letter giving two weeks notice should be sent to the school office.
Free School Meals
Parents who feel they are entitled to FREE SCHOOL MEALS should contact the Education Shop 0161 770 6688 or www.oldham.gov.uk/factsheets
for further information.
From Sept 2014 all children in reception, year 1 and year 2 will be eligible for free school meals.
Although most children have school meals, sandwiches may be brought on request. If your child does bring a packed lunch could you ensure that it is in a sealed, plastic container with the child's name clearly marked. No hot drinks are permitted for safety reasons. Drinks should be in unbreakable containers. We are a healthy eating school therefore sweets and chocolates are not allowed.
Milk and Fruit Scheme
Milk is available daily for foundation stage and Key stage one children free of charge. Please let us know if your child will not require it. At present all children in the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 receive a piece of fruit on a daily basis. This is part of the National Fruit Scheme and is free of charge.
At break times we encourage children to bring in a healthy snack. We also sell fruit for 20p to Key stage two children
