School meals are provided by Aspen Catering. The meals are cooked at Haygrove School and brought into school and served in the Exmoor Hall.
Free school meals
All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school meal. This is called a Universal Infant Free School Meal.
Children in years 3, 4 5 and 6 are only entitled to free school meals if their families are in receipt of Income Support or Income-based Job Seeker's Allowance.
Unfortunately if you receive working Tax credits you are not eligible for free school meals but if you have recently become unemployed, and are still receiving Working Tax Credits, you may be entitled. Please phone Somerset County Council on 0845 345 9122 for advice.
Application forms for free school meals are available from the School Office or can be downloaded by clicking on the links below:
If your child is entitled to receive free school meals but chooses to bring a packed lunch from home, please complete a Free School Meal form as we may be able to receive Pupil Premium Funding for your child even if they do not eat a free school meal.
Dining accommodation is provided for children who wish to bring and eat their own packed lunch in school. Children may bring drinks, but fizzy drinks are not permitted. Please ensure your child's lunchbox is clearly named.
School Milk and Fruit
Children in the Reception classes are given free milk as part of an EEC grant.
Children in Reception and Key Stage 1 also receive fruit daily as part of a Government initiative.
For morning break, all children may bring a snack, but as part of our programme to encourage healthy eating we do not allow sweets, chocolate or biscuits. Water is freely available in the classrooms and also from the playground water fountains.
Aspens Online Ordering and Payment System
Westover Green would like to introduce the Aspens App, this is an online ordering and payment system for your child’s school meal. The school will no longer be sending out paper menus and all orders must be placed using the online ordering system. This system will be completely separate from school and run entirely by Aspens. If you would like your child to continue to have a school meal you will need to set up an online account with Aspens and make your orders directly with them.
We will be working closely with Aspens during the changeover to online ordering to ensure that all families can access the ordering system, but it is really important that you seek support from Aspens or the school office if you have any difficulties.
