School Meals

The school is equipped with its own kitchen. From September 2021, we will be working in partnership with a new provider, Harrison Catering Services, for the provision of daily midday meals. The meals are high quality and meet the nutritional standards set by the Department of Education. Please click here for an introduction and overview from Harrison. The cost is currently £2.30 per meal and the website will be updated shortly with payment details. If there are medical reasons why your child cannot eat certain foods, parents are asked to notify us by completing a Food Allergy & Food Intolerance Management form.

The menu will run on a 3 week cycle. Please click on the link below to see the menu choices:

Payment for Meals

All Infant children are entitled to free school meals with the Government Universal Free School Meals Grant. However, for Junior children Harrison Catering Services require school meals to be paid for in advance. The website will be updated shortly with details of how to pay.

Free Meals    Pupils may receive free school meals if their parent(s) are in receipt of:

  • 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 the parents are 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 qualifying benefits listed above in their own right are also eligible to receive free school meals.

Parents are encouraged to apply for free meals even if you prefer your child to have a packed lunch, as this attracts valuable additional funding for the school.

Packed Lunches If your child would prefer to bring a packed lunch, please ensure that this contains no nuts, nut products or seeds (or chocolate spread which can be confused with Nutella), as we have children in school with severe allergies. Any drinks should be in a plastic container or carton.  No glass or cans of fizzy drink should be brought to school.  Please ensure that all lunch boxes are clearly named.

All food in lunch boxes should be eaten at lunch time. In addition, junior children may bring in a further fruit snack for morning break. Infant children have fruit for morning break provided by the school.
