Lunch, Fruit and Milk
Each day children have the choice of three lunches; Main (Red), Vegetarian (Green) or a lighter alternative (Blue). These are served with vegetables and a dessert. Full details are available on the Lunch Menu page.
Parents can choose their child's meal in advance on Scopay. We ask that this is done by Sunday evening for the following week. Alternatively children choose the meal that they want each morning as they come to school and are given a coloured band as a reminder of their order at lunchtime.
School meals must be paid for in advance through Scopay. These payments are made directly to Twelve15, our catering provider.

Allergies and Special Diets
Wyke is a nut free school. We do not allow any items containing nut products in school.
Twelve15, our catering provider is fully compliant with the requirements of Natasha’s Law which came into legislation on 1 October 2021. More information is available by clicking on their website - https://itstwelve15.co.uk/allergies/
Please contact the school office if you child requires a special diet for medical reasons. A copy of the Special Diets Request Form is available to download below.
Children also have the option to bring a packed lunch from home but we ask parents not to include any nut products as there may be children with serious allergies in the school at any time. We would also ask that you support us with our healthy message to the children by providing a healthy packed lunch and please do not include any sweets, fizzy drinks, energy drinks etc.
As we cannot distinguish between Nutella and chocolate spreads that do not contain nuts, we request that these are not eaten in school. Please use an alternative filling.
Ideas for healthy packed lunch can be found on the NHS Better Health website.
Fruit and Vegetables
The government funds pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 a free piece of fruit or vegetable each school day which the children have during the morning.
Children are invited to bring in a snack for playtime. These snacks should be healthy and we encourage fruit or vegetables. If your child has a particular need which means they need to have a snack that is not based on fruit or vegetables, please speak to their class teacher.
Children may also have a carton of milk each morning if you register for this. This is operated through a scheme called “Cool Milk”. All under fives can have milk free and over 5's at a subsidised rate.
Click www.coolmilk.com to access full details of how to register for the scheme.
Children should bring in a drink of water in a reusable bottle for drinking during the day.
