Our school lunches are provided by Surrey Commercial Services. We work with them to provide a nutritious, balanced meal using the best ingredients possible.

There are two ways to pay
Payments should be sent to the class teacher, in a clearly marked envelope stating your child’s name, class and amount enclosed. In order to change your child’s lunch arrangements from school meals to packed lunch (or vice versa), one week’s written notice is required.
Any parents wishing to take advantage of paying for school lunches on a half-term basis please note that the cost for children starting school (full time) from Friday 17 September 2010 will be £52.00. For those starting full time after this date please deduct £2.00 per school day until your child starts.
We administer the school milk provided to the children through a scheme called ’Cool Milk at School’ (CMAS). This scheme is in partnership with Surrey County Council.
The Cool milk scheme has proved to be very successful in over 35 Local Education Authorities and we hope that you will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to encourage your child to drink milk as part of their healthy diet.
In order to receive school milk, all you need to do is complete a registration form and return it to : Cool Milk at School – registrations, P O Box 994, Lincoln LN5 5GS or register and pay on-line at www.coolmilk.com. All queries and payments should be direct to Cool Milk (0800-321-3248).
Please note, you will need to register in order to receive the milk. Banstead Infant School are not involved in the ordering or payment of school milk.
