School Meals

All children from Reception to Year Two are entitled to free school meals. 

However, if you receive certain benefits or are on a low income, we actively encourage you to still apply for free school meals, as this will ensure that your child receives additional support within school through the Pupil Premium.

 You may be entitled to free school meals if you are in receipt of one or more of the following benefits: Income Support(IS), Income-basedJobseeker Allowance (IBJSA), Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA), Support under PartVI of the immigration and Asylum Act 1999, Guaranteed element of State Pension Credit,  Child Tax Credit without any Working Tax Credit and annual family income below £16,190.

Paying for School Dinners for Years Three to Six

Please do not hesitate to approach the school office for information about free school dinners.

If you pay for school dinners the correct amount of dinner money for the whole week should be paid on Monday morning.  Please note that we do not give change for dinner money, but instead give a credit towards the following week.

It is possible for children to bring a packed lunch to school, as an alternative to a school dinner. Please refer to our Healthy Packed Lunch advice

OTHER RULES

Parent's co-operation is required at all times and we ask you to ensure that:

Since all children eat a meal at midday, extra food and drink, including sweets and chewing gum, are not brought to school.  This also helps to protect children’s teeth

All personal items are left at home.  The staff cannot be responsible for lost items  from trays, bags, coats, etc.
