School Meals

School meals cost £2.50 per day.  Children select their choice from a school dinner, jacket potato or packed lunch on a daily basis during class registration.

Please see below the school dinner menu for the current menu cycle. Children do not have to have school dinners everyday and it is up to your children and you as parents to ensure that you choose a menu option your child will like.  School meals are cooked on site.
All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to Universal Free School Meals (UFSM).  UFSM are school dinners that are paid for by the government.   As per the menu options, children may select from any of the choices.  It is also important to note that children do not have to have UFSM every day. 



Claiming for Free School Meals

If you think your child may qualify for Free School Meals, please read the following information so that you can begin to start the claim process.


Why should I claim for Free School Meals?

It is really important, that if you feel you may be entitled to claim for Free School Meals, that you do so. This is because there is additional government funding awarded to the school, called the Pupil Premium, which is awarded to schools according to the number of children in receipt of Free School Meals. This means that claiming for Free School Meals could also help your child receive other benefits at school. Therefore, if you do feel you are entitled to claim, it is very much in your, your child and the school’s interest that you do make this claim. You can even claim and then not take the school hot dinner if your child does not like it; or, your child can just have the school dinners on the days they wish to.
