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 £2.35 per day (Correct at September 2020)


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


Details of which menu week is in use can be found on the school calendar

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.   


Free School Meals

In addition to the  universal free school meal (Years R-2) from the government, your child may be entitled to free school lunches if you get any of these benefits:

  • 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)
  • If you've asked for asylum and you're getting asylum support while you wait for a decision, you can also apply for free school lunches.


Further information is available from the Citizen's Advice Bureau (external link).


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.


Please let the office know if you think you may be entitled to claim Free School Meals.
