The midday meal is cooked on the premises in our own kitchen and it forms an integral part of the school day. It is in fact a good opportunity for social mixing within the school.
Care is taken to ensure that the food is healthy and wholesome. We currently rotate meals on a three weekly basis (paper copies of the menu are available from the school office and attached below).
Specialist diets can be catered for on request. Please contact the school office for Special Diet Request Form.
Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a ‘Universal Infant Free School Meal’. Each individual school dinner will cost £2.30 as from September 2024 and will be charged on parent pay weekly. For more information on this facility or password resets – please contact the School Office.
As an alternative to the main dish of the day there will be the option to have a jacket potato with beans, cheese or tuna. We also offer a selection of wraps and sandwiches and a self service salad bar.
Please Note – The menu may be varied slightly, depending on the availability of produce. We will also try to ensure that no meat is served on a Monday and offer fish on a Friday.
Free School Meals
Your child may be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:
- 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 guaranteed element of Pension Credit
- Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
- Working Tax Credit run-on – paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
- Universal Credit – if you apply on or after 1 April 2018 your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)
Children who get paid these benefits directly, instead of through a parent or guardian, can also get free school meals.
Your child may also get free school meals if you get any of these benefits and your child is both:
- younger than the compulsory age for starting school
- in full-time education
If you do not qualify for most benefits (also known as having ‘no recourse to public funds’), your child may still be eligible for free school meals.
