School lunches

Our brilliant kitchen team work hard to make sure that our children are served with a nutritious and delicious meal each day.

A nutritious meal each day is very important, and we would encourage all children to have a school meal where possible.

Menus are available on the School Money app, and it is important that you order your child’s meal by midnight the day before.

If a dinner is not ordered on the app (and packed lunch is not bought in), the vegetarian option will be served. Can we please remind parents that Halal meat is not served, however there are four options of meals on the menu each day which means that all religious persuasions are catered for.

If you need any help with ordering meals via School Money, please contact the school office on 01332 765546.

You can download a copy of the latest school menu at the bottom of this page.

Universal free school meals funding explained

All children in Reception Class and Years 1 and 2 are entitled to receive a free school meal, regardless of a parent’s financial status, through the Government Universal Free School meal funding scheme.

Key Stage 2 – Free School Meals

Children whose parents are receiving one of the welfare benefits listed below may be entitled to continue to receive a free school meal when they move up to Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6):

  • 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 children are eligible, the school receives additional funding called Pupil Premium.

Pupil Premium/free school meal funding is extra money the Government provides to the school to cover the cost of a school meal and help pay for valuable support such as extra tuition, educational resources or access to after school activities.

To find out if your child is eligible for free school meals, please contact the school office.

Should I register for free school meals even if my child isn’t in Key Stage 2 (Years 3–6) yet?

Yes! If you receive any of the benefits listed above, it is really important to register for free school meals so that we can ensure the school receives the full amount of Pupil Premium funding for your child.

Registering before your child reaches Key Stage 2 will also ensure they continue to receive free school meals when they move up through the school.

Packed lunches

Children who do not wish to have a cooked school meal can bring a packed lunch instead. Parents are asked to ensure that they are providing their child with a nutritionally balanced lunch that does not include sweets, chocolate or sugary drinks.

Food allergies

If your child has a food allergy, please contact the school office who will be able to assist you.

We are a nut free school.

Parents are asked to kindly note that because of the risks from seed and nut allergies, we do not allow nuts and seeds, or products containing them, onto the school premises.
