School Meals

Please see our School Menu on the bottom of this page.

The payment for school meals is required in advance on a weekly or monthly basis. The cost is £12.50 per week. Please send money in to school on a Monday, or the first day of the school week, payments should be in a sealed envelope with the name of your child, class, and the amount enclosed. In the case of absence, please send money on the first day back to school.

Who can get free school meals?

You can claim free school meals for a child who lives with you and who you are responsible for, as long as you get one of these qualifying incomes:

  • Income Support; or
  • income-based Jobseeker's Allowance; or
  • Pension Credit (Guarantee Credit); or
  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance; or
  • Child Tax Credit (CTC) as long as you are not getting an amount for childcare paid with your CTC, or getting Working Tax Credit. HM Revenue & Customs must also have worked out your household income as £16,190 a year or less. This income limit will be used until April 2013 but may go up in future years.

If you feel your child may be entitled to free school meals Please bring proof of entitlement to the school office as soon as possible. Claim forms are available and I will be happy to help with any queries.


Free school meals for all 'infants' at school

From September 2014, all children at school in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 get free school meals.
But parents who get a qualifying benefit or credit still need to claim free school meals for their 'infant' from us so that their child is counted for the pupil premium for your school. Make sure they have filled in our form or claimed as part of their Housing Benefit/Council Tax Support claim so that the child's name will be on the list we send you.

If you are an Asylum seeker we can arrange a free school meal. We can accept one of these documents as evidence:

  • an IS96 document
  • a standard acknowledgement letter (SAL) 1 or 2 
  • a letter from the Home Office 
  • a letter from a solicitor
  • an application registration card (ARC)
