Children may stay for a school meal, bring a packed lunch or go home for lunch. The school provides a choice of either a hot meal or a selection from the salad bar.
School meals should be paid for on Mondays of each week or half or full termly in cash (the correct amount please) or by cheque. Cheques should be made payable to the Isle of Man Government. Notice of the amount due for each half term will be sent to parents in advance. If your child is absent during the half term period we will credit the appropriate amount and inform you accordingly. Please enclose payment in a sealed envelope. The envelope should be clearly marked “Dinner Money” with your child’s name and class written on it. If you wish to change lunchtime arrangements please give the school at least one week’s notification.
Children on packed lunches should have a proper lunch container which is clearly marked with their name. Please note that hot drinks and glass bottles are not permitted. It is a school rule that all eating on the premises is confined to the dining room at lunch times. The eating of sweets is not promoted at school so please bear this in mind when preparing packed lunches. This rule is to promote healthy eating and to support dental hygiene as well as keeping the school tidy.
Children may have milk or orange at school. This must be paid for in advance either termly or yearly. Details of prices and payment dates will be sent out in school newsletters. We do ask you not to give your children drinks in glass bottles, cans or fizzy drinks.
Free School meals are available if you already receive Supplementary Benefit or Family Income Supplement.
Applications must be made by 1st August 2017 to:
Department of Education and Children
Rheynn Ynsee as Paitchyn Hamilton House Peel Road
Forms are available from the School Office or on the Government website www.gov.im. Payment for meals must be made unless your application approval is received at School.
Milk and Juice
Milk and juice may be ordered through the school. To help streamline our administration milk must be paid for in advance or a minimum of a half termly basis. We are not able to credit for absences. Also, we would ask that children do not start or stop milk during the half term period.
