School Meal Information
School meals are prepared off site by the LA Food Support Service. Our school meals, although not cooked on the premises, are nutritious and good value. All meals should be ordered on the school money system no later than midnight the night before a meal is required. The school operate a cashless system so all school meals need to be paid for at the time of ordering online.
Should you receive Universal Infant Free School Meals or Free School Meals, no payment will be required but the meal should still be ordered online.
Alternatively, your child can bring a nutritious packed lunch, which will be eaten in the school hall. Water is available, but children can bring their own drinks. Please do not send glass bottles, cans or fizzy drinks.
Universal Infant Free School Meals
For ALL children in EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2, the government provide Universal Infant School Meals. This means that your child in EYFS and KS1 can enjoy a school meal at no cost to you. If your child does not like the meal selection for a particular day, they may order a jacket potato instead. Please do encourage your child to take up this free meal.
Free School Meals
Families on low incomes can apply for their child to receive Free School Meals. This should be applied for even if your child is in EYFS or KS1 as it will entitle your child to additonal benefits such as subsidised school trips, subsidised after school clubs, free school uniform, free break milk and targeted support for individual pupils.
