Food in school
Children at Sleights enjoy well balanced and nutritious meals, freshly prepared on site each day by our school chef Mrs Eglon. We have a great uptake of children for our school meals and this is something that we are very proud of.
School meals are set at £2.40 per day, unless children receive free school meals (see below)
Our children enjoy a family service style approach to school lunchtimes. This, we believe, supports children to build and develop relationships, as well as strengthen table manners and lunchtime etiquette.
All of our school meals follow the North Yorkshire County Council menu. A copy of the menu for each term is shared with children and families, but additional copies can be collected from the school office.

Free School Meals
Free School Meals are available to all key stage one pupils and to children whose parents receive certain benefits. If you think that this may apply to you or your family, please do not hesitate to visit the school office in order to collect an application form. School staff will support you to complete this application.

Packed lunches brought in from home are expected to offer a healthy, balanced meal for pupils that also meet the expectations of the school food standards.
Healthy snacks are available for a small charge each day at morning break time. Children are also welcome to bring their own healthy snack.
In school, families can create a ‘Cool Milk’ account to allow their child to have milk each day, for a small charge. Please speak to Mrs Stubbs in the office for further details about this.
