Lunchtime Arrangements

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to Universal Free School Meals.

For children in Key Stage 2 who are not entitled to Free School Meals, meals are charged at £2.10 per day.

How to pay for a school meal

The correct money should be placed in an envelope with:

  •  your child’s name
  •  date
  •  amount

Place the envelope in one of the secure letter boxes located around school or in the main entrance.Please pay for school meals on a Monday. This allows us to process payments in a timely manner and helps us all keep track of what is owed.

Dinner Money Change

We will send you a text to collect dinner money change. Change must be collected in person from the office.  

For changes to lunchtime arrangements

If you wish to change your child’s lunchtime arrangements, we require a minimum of two weeks’ notice and a form must be collected from the School Office and completed beforehand. This ensures that enough school meals are ordered and paid for.

Free School Meals

If you’re on benefits, your child may be entitled to free school meals no matter what year they are in which could save you over £400 per year per child.

You are entitled to free school meals if you receive any of the following benefits:

  • Income Support
  • income-based Job Seeker's Allowance
  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Child Tax Credit with an annual income of less than £16,190, provided they are not receiving Working Tax Credit
  • the ‘Guaranteed’ element of the State Pension Credit
  • support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • Universal Credit, if you apply on or after 1 April 2018 your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)
  • if your child is eligible for free school meals, they’ll continue to receive them until they move to a new stage of school, such as from primary into secondary school

Please note: People receiving Working Tax Credit, regardless of their income level, do not qualify.
