School Meals

Children can choose from a school dinner provided by school or bring in their own packed lunch.

Children have the option to pick from the scheduled menu option, have a jacket potato or bring a packed lunch on a particular day.

School Dinners

Please let us know each week if your child wishes to have a school dinner.

We ask parents to complete a menu choice at the start of each term.

School dinners currently cost £10.50 a week (£2.10 per day). You can pay for school dinners on Parent Pay. We can also accept cash or cheques at the school office.

Packed lunch

If you choose a packed lunch, please avoid nuts and nut products i.e. peanut butter as there are several children who have severe nut allergies.

We are a Healthy School so please avoid fizzy drinks and sweets. Children will need a drink included in their packed lunch as well as a water bottle for when working in class.

Free school meals

Free school meals are available to all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 and children in Years 3-6 whose parents are in receipt of one or more of the following benefits:

  • income support
  • income-based job seeker's allowance
  • income-related employment and support allowance
  • child tax credit with an income of less than £16,190 and not in receipt of working tax credit
  • support under part VI of the immigration and asylum act 1999
  • guarantee element of state pension credit.

Where parents are entitled to working tax credit during a four week "run on" period immediately after their employment has ceased, or after they have started to work less than 16 hours per week, their children are entitled to free school meals.

Children who receive income support or income based jobseeker's allowance in their own right are also entitled to free school meals. 

Should you meet the above criteria, you can apply by using the application form in the useful downloads section.

Applications are usually processed the same day. If your child is entitled to free school meals you will receive a letter confirming the date when the meals will start. The school is also notified that your child is entitled to free school meals. In the meantime, you should continue to pay for free school meals until confirmation comes through. Schools may be able to arrange a reimbursement of any monies paid whilst your entitlement is being confirmed.

If you are not entitled to free school meals you will be notified in writing.
