Lunches are cooked on the school premises and cost £2.15p per day, payable in advance. Halal, non-halal, vegetarian and non-vegetarian food is provided.
Under current government directive, all children in Reception, Years 1 and 2 are entitled to free school meals. Some children in other years may also be entitled to a free school meal and details about this can be obtained from the school office.
Children may bring a packed lunch if they wish. Parents must notify the school in advance if they wish to change the lunch time arrangements for their children.
Changes may only take place from the beginning of a half term period.

Free School Meals
If you are in receipt of certain benefits you may be eligible for Free School Meals and you could save hundreds of pounds a year. The school also benefits, as we could receive up to £ 1,345 per year from the government for each child registered, which can be used for books, equipment or additional staff.
Use our Free School Meals eligibility checker Any parent can check. Parents with children in Nursery, Reception, Y1 and Y2 and any parent whose child has a packed lunch, so don’t pay for lunches, may also use the checker and the school could still receive the additional funding.
To apply please complete the form on your local authority’s website.
You must inform the school office once it has been confirmed that you are eligible for Free School Meals otherwise you will be charged for the meal and the school will not receive the additional funding for teaching and learning.
If you are providing a packed lunch for your child, please be aware of our Balanced Packed Lunch Policy. Click here for more information.
