School Lunches

For children attending school, a hot meal choice is available; the fee is collected in advance on a weekly, half-termly or termly basis. Parents can pre-order and pay online using scopay. The school provides a hot meal, with salad and bread, a dessert and drink.  

Dinners cost £2.30 per day (Correct at January 2019)

 

All Key Stage 1 aged children (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) are provided with a universal free school meal from the government.

Packed lunch

Provision is made for children who bring packed lunches to school.

A packed lunch needs to be:

  • A balanced healthy meal
  • No chocolate bars or sweets
  • No nut products are allowed to keep safe those with a nut allergy.

Children staying for packed lunch should have a labelled container for their balanced meal and drink. Uneaten food is returned home so parents can monitor what is being eaten.   

 

For those parents who wish to take their child home for lunch, collection is at 12.15 and return to school is by 1.00pm, so that the child is in time for afternoon lessons.

  • Child Tax Credit - but you can't apply for free meals if you're also entitled to Working Tax Credit and your yearly income is £16,190 or more before tax
  • Working Tax Credit run-on - you might get this for 4 weeks if you're no longer eligible for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit if you started your claim before 1 April 2018 or you earn less than £7,400 a year net (not including benefits)

The school is able to claim Pupil Premium Funding for any children who are entitled to a free school meal. This brings in extra funds to the school to provide learning assistants and opportunities for your child to have an enriched learning experience. The school makes the application with parent permission.
