School Meals

Foundation Stage and KS1 children are entitled to a universal school meal. KS2 children have to pay for a school dinner, with the exception of children who are entitled to free school meals. We have teamed up with ParentPay to develop a new cashless catering system. Instead of paying for dinners in cash you are able to pay for them online. Details on how to set up an account are avilable from the school office. The link to ParentPay is as follows:


The school supports the nutritional guidelines set out by the School Food Trust which have been adopted by the Local Authority school meals service. The cost of the meal is fixed by the Local Authority and the present charge can be obtained from the school office. School meals may be taken as frequently or infrequently as required.

Menus are given out termly and can also be downloaded below:


Free School Meals

Who Qualifies? Free School Meals are offered to children of families who receive one of the following:

  • Income Support
  • Income Based Job Seekers Allowance
  • Employment Support Allowance (income related)
  • Child Tax Credit with no Working Tax Credit and an annual income below £16,190
  • Guaranteed Pension Credit
  • Support under VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • Four week Working Tax Credit run-on

How do I apply?

Please apply for free school meal online on the council website or get a paper copy from your local link office.

From September 2014 all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will be entitled to a free school meal. However, it is really important that if you get one of the above benefits you complete this form – it will also enabled us to pay you a clothing grant and the school will receive an extra £1300 per year from the government for each of your children.
