School Meals

We have a fully functioning school kitchen on site, and our school meals are delivered by Aspens at the cost of £2.15 per child. Pupils in EYFS and Key Stage 1 are entitled to Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM), however pupils may bring in a packed lunch. 

School meals are payable via ParentPay.

A high standard of table manners is expected from children. The children are supervised by  Supervisory Assistants (SMSAs) during the meal and during lunchtime play.

As a school, we encourage healthy eating and that includes balance. In general, we would not expect sweets/chocolate like haribo/dairy milk but it is usual to include a biscuit based snack/cake bar as a sweet treat in a packed lunch. We do ask that at morning break, the only snack eaten at this time is fruit fresh/dried or veg (not cereal bars).

As you may be aware, if you claim certain benefits your child/ren could be entitled to Free School Meals and have access to the Pupil Premium Scheme, which provides additional funding that enables enrichment of your child's learning.

You may be entitled if you claim any of the following:

Income support
Income-based job seeker’s allowance
Income-related employment and support allowance

The guarantee element of state pension credit
Child tax credit: provided you are not entitled to working tax credit (unless four week run on) and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenue and Customs) that does not exceed £16,190.
We encourage parents/carers to apply for this hugely beneficial scheme, even if your child is entitled to Universal Free School Meals.
