Key Stage Two Fruit and Vegetable Scheme
As you are aware Reception and KS1 children receive fruit and vegetables under the School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme free of charge for a morning break snack. We are now able to offer this to our KS2 children but for a charge of 12.5p per child perday.
The produce is received from NHS approved suppliers and would be available for your children to have at morning break. If we have enough interest from KS2 parents we are proposing to be able to order the produce on your behalf on receipt of a half termly payment in advance of each half term.
If you would like your KS2 child to receive fruit/vegetables at morning break via the School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme at a cost of 12.5p per child per day, please order online via the school online payment system, SIMS PAY and select the product KS2 Fruit, please follow the link below: https://www.sims-pay.co.uk/Home/For-Parents
If your child is entitled to Free School Meals in KS2, they will be provided with a free piece of fruit/vegetable for a break time snack.
