Spring/Summer Menu

All Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children became entitled to a free school meal under the Universal Free School Meals for Infants programme offer and will therefore not be required to pay for their meal.

Key Stage 2 (Years 3, 4, 5 & 6) lunches are available  at a cost of £2.59 per day to be paid in advance. Lunches are paid using the Parentmail App. Please pay in blocks of five lunches as a minimum (£12.95)

Alternatively, you can pay half-termly or termly in advance. We reserve the right to request you to bring in a packed lunch for your child if dinner money is outstanding for more than two weeks. If a child is absent then credits for meals missed will be carried forward. We also provide facilities for children to eat packed lunches at school.

Take Up of Free School Meals

Free school meals are a lifeline for millions of families across the country. As the cost of living crisis pushes thousands into poverty, the scheme is crucial in the fight to stop children going hungry.

Free School Meals are available to pupils in receipt of, or whose parents are in receipt of, one or more of the following benefits:

  • Universal Credit - your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)
  • 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 Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (providing the family is not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run on – paid for four weeks after a claimant stops qualifying for Working Tax Credit

 

In addition the following pupils will be protected against losing their free school meals whilst Universal Credit is rolled out:

  • From 1 April 2018, all existing free school meal pupils will continue to receive free school meals
  • Any child gaining eligibility for free school meals after 1 April 2018 will be protected

Once Universal Credit is fully rolled out (expected to be complete in March 2022) any existing claimant that no longer meets the eligibility criteria will continue to receive free school meals until the end of their current phase of education (i.e. primary or secondary).

Registering is really quick and easy, you can apply online below:

Schools receive additional funding, called Pupil Premium, (currently £1345 per child) for those children entitled to free school meals. Therefore it is important that families, who meet the criteria for free school meals, apply via the school for this entitlement, even if their child is in Reception, Year 1, Year 2, or they do not wish to take up this offer, otherwise we may miss out on this important funding which is used to support children.
