Our School Lunch
The school kitchen offers a choice of cooked dinners in addition to a salad bar and a selection of baguettes (during Covid-19 restrictions the salad bar/baguette station is not in use, instead children order their meal at the start of the day. When doing so their is a choice of hot meal; baked potato with fillings or a sandwich). As parents and carers you can decide whether you would like your child to have a school dinner or whether you wish to provide them with a healthy packed lunch, unless they are in Nursery where all children have a school dinner. In Nursery lunchtime is a learning opportunity where children can develop socially and also practise using cutlery.
Children in Nursery – meals cost £9.50 per week (£1.90 per day). Payment is online via ParentPay and we ask that families pay for meals in advance. Please speak to Mrs Hughes in the office if you need to set up an account.
Children in Reception, Year One and Year Two qualify for ‘Universal Free School Meals’ (UFSM) and by law this means you do not have to pay for your child to have a school dinner (no matter what your parental income). You will need to fill in a form for this (available from the school office).
Children in Year Three to Six – meals cost £12 per week (£2.40 per day). Payment is online via ParentPay and we ask that families pay for meals in advance. Please speak to Mrs Hughes in the office if you need to set up an account.
Free School Meals – You may be able to claim for free school meals if you are in receipt of certain benefits. Please come and speak to our office if you think you might qualify, they will be able to advise if you need to fill in a form or you can download the form yourself here and then bring it along to the Office once completed.
If you would prefer to provide your child with a lunch yourself, please make sure your child brings it with them in the morning in a labelled lunchbox/bag. Sweets, chocolates and fizzy drinks are not allowed.
