School Meals

Meal Options
Our meals are cooked on site and menus are available for you to see the choice of meals offered. There is always a vegetarian option and halal meat is provided. If your child has a special diet, please let us know.

All pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school meal although the option to bring a packed lunch to school remains. We would be grateful if you could let the school know of your intentions prior to admission.

Pupils in Years 3 to 6 have the option of a school lunch or bringing a packed lunch.

Free School Meals

Your child may be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:

  • Income Support

  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance

  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance

  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

  • the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit

  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)

  • Working Tax Credit run-on – paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit

  • Universal Credit

We would ask all families who believe they may be entitled to a free school meal to register accordingly, regardless of whether the meal needs to be paid for or otherwise. The school receives additional funding to support children from families who are eligible and also entitles them to a free packed lunch when they are go on educational visits beyond the school.

You can Apply Here to see if you are eligible for free school meals. The school office will be notified of your application.

 Dinner Money
Dinner money is paid in advance for the forthcoming half-term. It must brought to school in an envelope with your child’s name and class clearly marked on it and the amount enclosed. Please provide the school office with notice of changes to lunch arrangements, for administrative purposes changes must take place from the start of a half-term

These are an alternative to a school meal and there is information available from school on healthy lunchboxes. Please do not send drinks with sandwiches as chilled, filtered water is provided.

As part of our responsibility to encourage our children to eat healthily, we ask that crisps and chocolate bars are not included as part of packed lunches or for snacks during the day.

Snacks and Drinks
Children in Years 3 – 6 can purchase wholemeal toast, fruit juice and fresh fruit as part of our provision during the mid morning break. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free portion of fruit every day such as apples, pears, bananas and small oranges. Milk or orange juice can be bought from the kitchen and water is available for these children.

A Healthy School
The school possesses the ‘Healthy School Standard’. This recognises our work in promoting a healthy lifestyle for our children.
