School Meals

We encourage all children to have a healthy and nutritional meal at lunchtime and a snack of fresh fruit during morning break.  We also encourage children to keep hydrated during the school day with water. 

Our school meals are prepared by Norse catering. A copy of the school menu is sent out to parents and a copy of the most recent menu can be found below.

We aim to provide a varied, balanced meal with a choice of four main courses including vegetables and salad. Yoghurt and fruit or a sweet are also available each day. A drink of milk or water are provide for the children with their meal.

Payment for a school meal in Nursery and KS2 (Years 3 to 6) is £2.53 per meal per day.   Invoices are sent out at the end of each month and are payable within 7 days from the date of invoice. 

Since September 2014 all pupils in KS1 are provided with a free cooked school lunch. These meals are healthy and tasty and we encourage parents to take advantage of this new initiative which saves them £11 a week, the equivalent of £418 a year. Parents and guardians are encouraged to apply for free school meals when they enrol their child in school, as this can help their child’s school to attract additional pupil premium funding to support learning.

From Year 3 onwards, children whose parents are in receipt of the following are entitled to free school meals:

  • Income Support
  • income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on – paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit.

Children who receive any of the above benefits in their own right (i.e. they get benefits payments directly, instead of through a parent or guardian) can also get free school meals.
