Our school meals are very popular and around 80% of RKS children have them each day. Lunch menus are nutritionally balanced and all food is cooked in our recently refurbished kitchens. Surrey County Council are contracted to provide our catering.
Alternatively parents may pay by cash or cheque made payable to Surrey County Council. Payment should be made on the first day of each week or half-term and we ask parents to pay promptly for school meals to help reduce the admin workload.
Children who are absent through illness and inform the school of their absence by 10.15am will be credited with that day's payment.
Children may bring in snacks for their mid-morning break. We ask that these do not contain nuts, as we have children on site suffering from severe nut allergies. Appropriate snacks include fresh or dried fruit, vegetables, breadsticks, cheese sticks and breakfast bars (which do not contain nuts). Please consider the packaging that you use for these snacks, as we are doing our best as a school to reduce plastic waste. Please do not send in fried crisps, biscuits or foods with high sugar/ salt/ fat content. Guidance on snacks is available on the NHS Change4Life Website and if you are giving your child packaged snacks rather than fruit and vegetables, please remember that the NHS guidelines are ‘100 calorie snacks, two a day max’.
Reception and KS1 are provided with a piece of fruit or a vegetable each day from the ‘fruit for schools’ scheme, but parents are very welcome to supplement this with further snacks.As stated above, because of allergies we are a nut free school.
