School Meals

From 1st April, school will assume control of the kitchens under the new name 'Eddie-licious.' The menus for Summer Term 1 are available to download here.

The Price of a school meal is £2.50 per day and payment for the week should be made on Monday.

The school uses 'School Money' to collect payment-  please use this link eduspot    - to enable parents to pay for meals online.  If you have any problems using this site, please contact the school office staff.

We are fortunate at St Edward’s to be able to offer midday meals cooked on the premises by our cook Christine Brown and her team. These meals are of a high standard and wide variety.

All school meals comply with government standards developed by the School Food Trust.

Currently, all children in reception, year 1 and year 2 in state-funded schools in England will be eligible for free school meals.

Please inform us if you do not wish to receive this offer, otherwise your child will automatically be opted in to the free school meal.

A midday meal is provided in  school for any pupil who wants one.

Free school meals are available to children whose families are eligible     

 Parents who feel they may be eligible to claim for Free School Meals please use the following link - Oldham Council Free School Meals for further information.

If your child is eligible for ‘free school meals’ and you register them for this, as well as your child getting a nutritious meal, you could save up to £475.00 per year and the school will also receive extra funding called ‘pupil premium’. We use this extra money to improve the educational provision and resources at the school.

Packed Lunches

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.

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.

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.
