Here is an Welcome Letter from Aspen’s.  

Aspens Welcome Letter Primary School

All Saints Menu Summer 23

All children in Early Years, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a Government ‘Universal Free School Meal’. For all children in Key Stage 2 (Years 3-6) the current charge is £2.50 per day (£12.50 per week).

As an alternative to a cooked meal, children may bring a packed lunch. Please send this in a clearly labelled lunch box or container. For health reasons, nuts, including peanut butter, cans of fizzy drink, glass bottles or ring-pull tins cannot be allowed in school, nor are sweets (confectionery).

Playtime Snacks

We participate in the School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme, which provides a piece of fresh fruit or vegetable daily to our EYFS and Key Stage 1 children, free of charge.

In Key Stage 2, as part of our healthy eating policy and through school curriculum activities, we encourage all pupils to eat healthy snacks e.g. fruit, etc, for school morning break. Alternatively, Upper Key Stage 2 pupils can purchase a mid-morning healthy snack from the school kitchen for 50 pence. High sugar content cereal bars, crisps, chocolate bars, etc are strongly discouraged. Sweets (confectionery) and fizzy drinks are not permitted.

Dinner Money

Payment may be made online via the Arbor Parent Portal or App. Lunches should be paid for in advance, not in arrears. Ideally, payment should be made on a Monday for any lunches to be taken during that week. Any debt must be cleared by the end of each week.

In Cash / By Cheque

  • Money should be sent in a named envelope clearly marked ‘School Lunches’ and stating the child/children’s name/s, class and the amount enclosed. If loose cash is handed in, there is a high risk that this may not get credited to the right child as cash is completely anonymous if not in a marked envelope. Please ensure envelopes are sealed well as some envelopes can have a considerable gap at the edges, particularly the self-seal type, and coins can be lost.
  • If you wish to pay by cheque, please make these payable to ‘All Saints Schools Trust’ and mark the reverse of the cheque with your child/children’s name/s and classes.
  • If paying for more than one child and the amount is not being split equally, please state how much should be credited to each child.
  • Please do not pay dinner money at the office, all payments should be sent in via your child.
  • Unfortunately, we are unable to give change. However, any excess funds will be credited to your child for future use.

Free School Meals

Free school meals allow your child to have a meal at school without charge. It also generates a sum of money called Pupil Premium funding, which the school uses to benefit your child’s education. To qualify for free school meals for your child, you must be receiving one of the following:

  • Income Support
  • income-based Job Seeker’s Allowance
  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit but no element of Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenues & Customs) that does not exceed £16,190
  • Working Tax Credit during the four-week period immediately after your employment finishes or after you start to work fewer hours per week
  • Universal Credit (provided you have an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400 (£616.67 per month), as assessed by earnings from up to three of your most recent assessment periods).

 The application process is simple and can be made at any time.
