Menu change

There has been a change to the Aspens’ menu for Thursday the 6th of October and Friday the 7th of October. Please check if you have already ordered and amend this to ensure your child gets the desired meal on the correct day.

Thursday 6th will now be: Battered Fish and Chips or Roasted vegetable pasta bake followed by chocolate and pear pudding.

Friday 7th will now be: Two fish and potato pie or quorn sausages with bubble and squeak mash and gravy followed by jam and coconut sponge and custard.

Please note that the aspens packed lunches will remain the same -no change to these for the two days.


Aspens Lunches

If you make use of the Aspens online ordering service, please ensure that you order your child’s meal before 9am on any given day and that you cancel any orders before 9 am should you no longer require a meal for that day. This includes all children in Foundation, Year 1 and 2 who have free meal entitlement. Please also check that you have correctly named your child’s class on the Aspens website. We ask that you use the correct class tree name and nothing else. This helps us to sort them into the correct groups.

Reception – Oak

Year 1- Hornbeam

Year 2-Beech

Year 3-Ash

Year 4-Rowan

Year 5- Maple

Year 6- Willow
