School Meals

Our school meal service includes new menu choices, use of plates and bowls instead of trays and a cold selection/salad bar. We hope the children will enjoy even more delicious school lunches!
The cost of a school meal is £1.90 per day (£9.50 per week) and should be sent in to school each Monday for the week ahead. May we remind parents that school meals MUST be paid for in advance.

UNIVERSAL INFANT FREE SCHOOL MEALS
From September the Government have introduced a scheme which provides a free school meal for all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 regardless of parents income or circumstances. In order to take advantage of this scheme please complete a registration form which is available from the school reception, without this form we are unable to provide a meal. If you require any assistance completing this short form please ask as Reception or speak to Miss Davidson

KEY STAGE 2 FREE SCHOOL MEALS
Families in receipt of certain benefits or on a low income may be entitled to Free School Meals. It is always worth applying even if you think that you may not be entitled. Our school also receives additional funding for every FSM pupil, so please help us to ensure we can access this for your child.

Forms can be sent home with your child, in the post or can be collected from the school reception. We can also provide assistance with completing the form. No additional paperwork is required. If you would like more information please ask in school.

FREE SCHOOL MEALS

Families in receipt of certain benefits or on a low income may be entitled to Free School Meals. It is always worth applying even if you think that you may not be entitled. Our school also receives additional funding for every FSM pupil, so please help us to ensure we can access this for your child.

Pupils whose parents receive the following support payments are entitled to receive free school meals:

  • Income Support (IS)
  • Income based jobseekers allowance (IBJSA)
  • Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999; or Child Tax Credit, provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs), that as of 6th April 2011 does not exceed £16,190 (this amount may change).
  • Income-related employment and support allowance
  • Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
  • Children who receive IS or IBJSA in their own right are also entitled to receive free school meals.
  • An applicant can be entitled to free school meals if they are receiving working tax credit during the four week period immediately after employment finishes or after they start to work less than 16 hours per week.

We will check your benefits using the free school meals checking service (ECS) provided by the Department for Education. If we can’t find out about your benefits we will need to contact you before we can confirm your eligibility. You must continue to pay for all your child’s school meals until we receive proof that they are entitled to free school meals.
