School Meals

CRC Article 24: All children have the right to nutritious food and clean water so that they can stay healthy.

School meals are free for children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 (Please see Free School Meals information below).

We are proud to work with Chartwells for your children’s school dinners. Chartwells believe that the key to fuelling young minds comes from understanding both what they need and what they enjoy, which is why they develop nutritious and delicious food that pupils love, alongside helping to ensure a healthy body and mind. Their passionate culinary experts work closely with us to ensure every child receives healthy food, perfectly suited to meet their needs and dietary requirements.

The current meal price is £2.81 and should be paid in advance on Monday morning, or the first day of the school week, via Parentpay.

Parentpay details are available from our School Office and further information is available here.

Free School Meals

We would urge parents to register their entitlement for free school meals if they are eligible to receive them.  Our school receives additional funding for every child who is registered for a free school meal; this helps us to provide additional resources for the children.  Even though all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will receive a free meal from September 2014, we would still ask you to register your entitlement to free meals if any of the below applies to your family.

Children are entitled to free school meals if their families receive:

  • income support;
  • income-based Jobseekers Allowance;
  • an income-related employment and support allowance;
  • support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999;
  • or the guarantee element of State Pension Credit.

In addition, children are entitled to free school meals if their families receive Child Tax Credit (provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit, except for the four week ‘run-on’ period after a parent has become unemployed or reduced their hours to less than 16 hours per week), and their gross annual income is not over £16,190 (as assessed by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs).

Please note, that you can pick up an application form for free school meals at our School Office. Alternatively, you can print and complete a copy of the form below. If you are, or think you may be, eligible for free meals, please complete the form even if your child has a packed lunch; the school receives additional funding depending upon the number of children eligible for free school meals.
