The school has a kitchen and meals are cooked on the premises, daily.  Meals meet the current higher nutritional standards expected, using locally sourced meats and fresh vegetables.  Fresh fruit, bread and water are always available.  Should your child have specific dietary needs please discuss these with us and we will do our best to accommodate them. e.g. vegetarian, vegan, allergies, etc

The current cost of a school meal is £2.30 or £11.50  per week.  Meals can be paid for on a weekly, ½ termly or termly basis, in advance, through Parent Pay. 

If you wish your child to bring a packed lunch we provide trolleys where boxes can be stored safely.  Please do not include sweets, chocolate or fizzy drinks and check that containers are unbreakable. Water is always available in the lunch hall.

Free School Meals

Free school meals are available to children whose parents are in receipt of one or more of the following benefits:

  • income support
  • income-based job seeker's allowance
  • income-related employment and support allowance
  • child tax credit with an income of less than £16,190 and not in receipt of working tax credit
  • support under part VI of the immigration and asylum act 1999
  • guarantee element of state pension credit.

Where parents are entitled to working tax credit during a four week "run on" period immediately after their employment has ceased, or after they have started to work less than 16 hours per week, their children are entitled to free school meals.

Children who receive income support or income based jobseeker's allowance in their own right are also entitled to free school meals. 

Should you meet the above criteria, you can apply by using the application form in the useful downloads section.

Applications are usually processed the same day. If your child is entitled to free school meals you will receive a letter confirming the date when the meals will start. The school is also notified that your child is entitled to free school meals. In the meantime, you should continue to pay for free school meals until confirmation comes through. Schools may be able to arrange a reimbursement of any monies paid whilst your entitlement is being confirmed.

If you are not entitled to free school meals you will be notified in writing.
