Free school meals

You may be eligible for free school meals if you receive a qualifying benefit. Find out more and apply.

If your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 they will automatically be eligible for free school meals under the universal infant free school meals scheme.

If you receive benefits and your child gets universal infant free school meals, you should still apply online for free school meals. This will allow your child’s school to receive extra funding that could support your child.

Parent FAQs

Explore our Parent FAQ section where we answer the most frequent queries and offer insights into our dedicated services.

Are school meals better value than a packed lunch?

We offer pupils a daily choice of two main courses, including a vegetarian option and a dessert. A fresh salad bar and fruit are always available for children to help themselves along with home baked bread.

For £2.70 this provides good value for money and gives children a delicious, nutritional meal so they can be at their best during the school day.

My child is allergic to some foods. How do you ensure that the food is safe for them?

All recipes are checked through a software system that links with the information the school holds on a child. We then have a system in place at the till that alerts our staff about whether a child has any allergies, so that they can serve them safely.

We are vegetarian for religious reasons. How do you prevent animal products being served?

As above, all recipes are checked through a software system that links with the information the school holds on a child. The system in place at the till alerts our staff about whether a child is vegetarian, so that they aren’t served items containing meat or animal derivatives.

Why does the food served differ from the menu occasionally?

We rely on our suppliers to provide the food items on a daily basis and from time to time the industry can be affected by supply issues. When this happens, we may have to change the meal options at short notice, but children will always be offered two choices.

Why can’t I choose my child’s meal on an app as parents can do in other schools?

We don’t currently have an app, but this is something we are considering.
