School Meals

Frpm the 16th April school meals will cost £2.20 payable using our online system.  We will no longer be able to take cash for meals.  Meals will need to be paid for the day before they are required. 

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.

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.
