  • Free School Meals

    http://www.kirklees.gov.uk/beta/schools/free-school-meals.aspx

    Apply by phone on 01484 221928 or 221000.

    No one will know you have applied and it will not affect any other benefits you are claiming.

     

    Free School Meals / Pupil Premium

    As you may be aware, since September 2014 all children who are in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 are offered a free healthy school lunch (Universal Free School Meals).

    Children in other school years will also be offered a free school lunch if their parent qualifies under the Free School Meals scheme, qualifying details are listed below.

    Registering for the Free School Meals Scheme also raises extra money for your child’s school, to fund valuable support such as extra tuition, additional teaching staff or after school activities. This additional money is available from central government for every child whose parent is receiving one of the welfare benefits listed below. It is therefore important to sign up for Free School Meals, even if your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, so that your child’s school receives as much funding as possible.

    School Milk is also free if your child is eligible so it is vital that you apply to receive these additional benefits.

    At the end of October 2018 school will provide a free school Uniform Polo Shirt and Cardigan/Sweatshirt to those children who are registered for Free School Meals from the funding received. Please ensure you have made your application by the beginning of October to qualify for this.

    Free School Meals Scheme Qualification:

    A child whose parents or carers receive one or more of the following:

    •  Universal Credit (providedyou have an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400, as assessed by earnings from up to three of your most recent assessment periods).
    •  Income Support
    •  Income Based Job Seekers Allowance
    •  Income Related Employment and Support Allowance
    •  Child Tax Credit, but are not entitled to a Working Tax Credit and your annual income  (as assessed by Her majesty’s Revenue and Customs) is less than £16,190 
    •      Support under Part V1 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
    •  Guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
    •  

    The council will usually contact your child's school within 48 hours to tell them the date the entitlement to free school meals will start from. They will also send you a letter telling you the start date of your free school meal entitlement. This is usually received within 5 working days

  • Our school 'Big Breakfast' June 2018

    Tuesday 26th June was our final Big Breakfast of the 2017/18 school year!  

    The children ate a bowl of yoghurt with a choice of toppings/extras to mix in or sprinkle on top. 

    The focus of our Big Breakfast was  where does our food come from?

    Below is a link to a BBC Bitezize  clip showing how yoghurt is made. 

    Jimmy visits a yoghurt factory and helps manufacture some yoghurt. While doing this he learns about the millions of bacteria used in the fermentation process. Bacteria are added to skimmed milk powder, sugar and milk proteins. They eat the milk proteins and produce lactic acid, which thickens the milk, turning it into yoghurt.

    Halal Meals in Kirklees Schools

    You may be aware of the recent news stories around the use of non-stunned/HMC approved meat in Halal meals in Kirklees Schools. Our school does not provide any Halal meat meals as part of our school menu.

    In addition to a standard meat based meal, we also provide a vegetarian option, as a daily alternative. The vegetarian option is suitable for any children who follow the Islamic faith.

    If you have any concerns or questions about the food your child is eating at school please contact our Headteacher Mrs Nicola Beaumont.

  • The Soil Association Food for Life initiative and award

    Food for Life is an award  issued by the Soil Association which guides schools through a 'whole school approach' to food.

    Schools are encouraged to grow their own food; organise trips to farms; provide cooking and growing clubs for pupils and their families; serve freshly prepared, well-sourced meals and provide an attractive dining environment.

    Lindley Infant School is proud to be classified as SILVER 'Food For life served here' standard.

    As part of our ongoing committment to Food for Life and Fairtrade, we are enjoyed a  whole school Big Breakfast on Thursday 16th November.  We ate porridge with a choice of toppings  (raisins, fairtrade sugar, syrup) and drinking fairtrade orange juice.
