Our kitchen is run by Hertfordshire Catering and offer well balanced nutritious meals. Each day a selection of freshly prepared hot and cold meals are cooked in the school kitchen. We offer flexibility about which day your child has a school meal.
Key Stage 2
The price of a school dinner for pupils in Key Stage 2 is £2.70 per day. A letter will be sent home at the beginning of each half term with the cost of your child's meal pattern. Dinner money can be paid weekly or half-termly. The method of payment is online using 'Schoolgateway'.
Universal Infant School Meals
Children in Reception and Key Stage 1 are entitled to a school meal funded directly from central government. You obviously still have the choice to send your child to school with a packed lunch if this is your preferred option.
Free School Meals
Free School Meals (FSM) and Universal Infant School Meals (UISM) are not the same thing. The number of children in school who receive FSM affects the amount of Pupil Premium funding paid to school whereas UISM money is paid purely to cover the cost of meals taken by children on a given day. If you think you may qualify for FSM and have not recently completed a form please contact the school office. Further information is available on the HertsDirect website http://www.hertsdirect.org/services/edlearn/canhelp/ or, alternatively, contact the School Office in confidence.
Academic Year 2020-2021
At Millfield the children will be remaining in their year group bubbles during lunchtimes. Reception children will eat in their bubble in the school hall while children in years 1, 2, 3 and 4 will eat in their classrooms. All children will be supported by Midday Supervisors. Currently Herts Catering Limited are offering the following dinner options:
Lunches should be brought to school in a suitable strong container with your child’s name and class clearly marked on the front.
At Millfield we promote healthy living, with this in mind we ask for your support in encouraging your child to eat healthily and in supplying them with a ‘healthy’ packed lunch. Sweets, chocolates or fizzy drinks are not permitted, though a chocolate biscuit such as a kit-kat is acceptable.
We are a 'Nut Free' school so please ensure that the lunch does not contain any nut products and that all content/nutrition labels on packaged items are checked thoroughly to ensure the items do not contain any nut products, e.g. snack bars.
