School Meals

FS2 /Year 1 / Year 2 Pupils: Universal Free School Meals


From September 2014, all pupils in FS2, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school meal at lunchtime. This offer does not depend on your household income or whether you receive any benefits – every child in these classes is eligible to take up the offer.


The government has decided to fund free school lunches for all pupils in this age group, following the Department for Education’s recent review of school food. In a trial, it was found that pupils who ate a high quality school lunch achieved better academically than those who did not.


Year 3 / Year 4 / Year 5 & Pupil 6 Pupils


School lunches are available at a cost of £2.20 per day, this should be sent to your child’s registration group at the start of the week in a money envelope provided by school or payment is to be made via parentpay.


Sandwiches may be brought but NO breakable containers or fizzy drinks in cans. We ask that parents/carers consider healthy choices for packed lunch items (e.g. no sweets/chocolate bars).


Mrs Knibbs as our Healthy Schools co-ordinator can advise if you need suggestions.  See the office staff if you need to enquire about free school meals.
