School dinner information.

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school dinner every day through Universal Free School Meals Funding.

For children in Years 3 to 6, the cost of the lunch is £2.30 per day, payable in advance via Parentmail.  We operate a cashless system for school dinners and therefore, no cash will be accepted by the school office.  You can get Free School Meals for your child if you or your partner gets either:

  • Income Support.
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit, provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income of £16,190 or less, as assessed by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs

Where a parent is entitled to Working Tax Credit during the four-week period immediately after their employment ceases, or after they start to work less than 16 hours per week, their children are entitled to free school lunches. Children who receive a qualifying benefit in their own right are also eligible to receive Free School Meals.

To apply for a Free School Meal for your child please visit www.myfreeschoolmeals.com and complete a short application.  Alternatively visit the school office to complete a form and we will apply on your behalf.

If your child is in Reception or Years 1 or 2 and you are in receipt of any of the above, you can also use this application to secure additional school funding for your child.

School Food Standards

Our school menus are thoughtfully designed to align with Government standards for school food (please refer to the link below for details). These standards specify what can and cannot be served, including the frequency of certain foods. Our menus prioritise balanced, high-quality meals with a focus on locally sourced ingredients whenever feasible. We offer a diverse range of dishes to encourage the development of healthy eating habits and choices in your child.

We’ve noticed that many children become more open to trying new foods when they share meals with their peers. Therefore, we kindly request your support in fostering a positive attitude towards new foods when your child returns home from school. Encouraging them to explore new flavours and praising their willingness to try new things can go a long way in helping us provide a nutritious and enjoyable dining experience.
