School Meals

We are very proud of our state of the art facilities at the school and this includes the kitchen. We provide meals which meet the Government’s new guidelines in Nutritional Standards. This means:

  • More fruit and vegetables – no less than two servings a day, one of which is either vegetables or salad and a range of fresh fruit being made available every day.
  • More oily fish – oily fish such as mackerel or salmon is served once every three weeks.
  • Bread – a different home-made bread is served every day.
  • Drinking water – fresh drinking water available throughout the day.

The cost of lunch is £2.10. This can be paid either weekly or termly. Please speak to a member of the administration team to confirm how you would prefer to pay.

Children may also choose to bring a packed lunch but we prefer all children to take a school meal if at all possible. In the interest of safety we ask that drinks for the packed lunch are brought in a plastic flask or sealed beaker. Fizzy drinks, sweets and chocolate bars should not be brought in.

Morning Snack

We provide fresh fruit every day but the children are allowed to bring a piece of fruit or a cereal bar as a morning snack if they so wish.

 

Free School Meals

Free school meals are available to children whose parents are in receipt of one or more of the following benefits:

  • income support
  • income-based job seeker's allowance
  • income-related employment and support allowance
  • child tax credit with an income of less than £16,190 and not in receipt of working tax credit
  • support under part VI of the immigration and asylum act 1999
  • guarantee element of state pension credit.

Where parents are entitled to working tax credit during a four week "run on" period immediately after their employment has ceased, or after they have started to work less than 16 hours per week, their children are entitled to free school meals.

Children who receive income support or income based jobseeker's allowance in their own right are also entitled to free school meals.

Applications are usually processed the same day. If your child is entitled to free school meals you will receive a letter confirming the date when the meals will start. The school is also notified that your child is entitled to free school meals. In the meantime, you should continue to pay for free school meals until confirmation comes through. Schools may be able to arrange a reimbursement of any monies paid whilst your entitlement is being confirmed.

If you are not entitled to free school meals you will be notified in writing.
