We have a lovely cook, Claire, who prepares hot school meals in our huge new kitchen. Children in Oak, Birch, Elm, Cherry and Horse Chestnut Classes receive Free Meals as part of the Infant Universal Free Meals Government Scheme. All other meals can be paid for in advance via Parent Pay. Please speak to the School Office for more information on our School Meals.
If your situation has changed due to the Covid-19 crisis, you may be able to apply for free school meals. Please contact the school office for further details and an application form. They will help you make the process easy.
Your child may be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:
Children who get paid these benefits directly, instead of through a parent or guardian, can also get free school meals.
What about infants that receive a free meal under universal infant free school meals?
There is no requirement to continue to provide universal infant free school meals to pupils in Reception, Year 1, or Year 2 who are unable to attend school. Children in those year groups who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals will be supported, please apply through the school office.
If your child has a specific dietary requirement, please refer to the Allergy Policy and other Dietary Requirements. This policy can be found on the Key Information page under Policies.
