School Meals

School meals are £2:00 in KS2

All children in FS2 and KS1 are entitled to a free meal very day.  Please inform the school office if you wish to take this up.

We are very fortunate to have all of our school meals expertly prepared and cooked on the premises.

For the past two years our Kitchen has been awarded 5 stars and a grading of excellent!!!

The school offers a variety of balanced and healthy meals throughout the week. A copy of the menu is distributed at the beginning of each term so that you can select which meals your child would like. Choices include the set hot meal, vegetarian option, jacket potato, baguette or sandwich.

Dinner money should be paid to your child’s class teacher in a named envelope with details of which meals they require on which day.

Non payment is a debt. No parent would take their child to McDonalds and expect them to be given food without paying or ask them to wait until Friday for them to pay for a meal taken on Tuesday; the same applies at school.

As we run our own kitchen, if debts are incurred, then the school budget has to pay for them. This means that money which should be spent on the children’s education is used to pay for debts incurred by parents.

If the debt is not cleared, parents will be asked to take their child home or provide a packed lunch. In a case when a debt payment is not received nor a packed lunch provided, the office manager will phone the parent to ask them to come to school with the money or a packed lunch.

If payment of the debt is not received by the next day, a letter will be sent to the parents requesting immediate payment. A reminder letter will be sent out for payment but unpaid debts have to be cleared.

Free School Meals

Remember you are entitled to free school meals if you receive:

Income Support

Income-based Job Seekers' Allowance

Income-related Employment and Support Allowance

Child Tax Credit, provided they are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190, as assessed by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs.1

Every child who is on Free School Meals we will get an extra £900 spent on them under the government's pupil premium scheme from April 2013.  As a school it is vital we receive that money.

Pupils on Free School Meals are also entitled to free after school clubs and one free school trip a year.

So please speak to the office.
