School Lunches

School Meals

We believe very strongly that every child should be provided with meals which should be wholesome and locally sourced, exciting children as well as giving them the nutrition they need.

Our school meals balance them eating what they are familiar and happy with, alongside gentle temptation to try new things.

School policy is dinners must be paid for on the Monday of each week at a cost of £2.30 per day (£11.50 per week).

The class teacher takes a class register each morning and will ask the children if they are having a packed lunch or require a school dinner, so it is important they know what they are having.

Free School Meals

Is my child eligible?

From September 2014 all pupils in reception, year 1 and year 2 are eligible for free school meals (FSMs).

Free school meals are also offered to children in years 3-6 whose parents receive:

  • Income Support
  • Income based Employment & Support Allowance
  • Income based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The Guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit provided your annual income as assessed by the Inland Revenue does not exceed £16,190 and provided that Working Tax Credit is not included.

When to apply

You should apply to your school when you first start to receive benefit as claims are not backdated. Your eligibility will be reviewed at least every six months by the school.

You should notify the school immediately if any changes occur to your benefits.
