School meals are available, the aim being to provide a balanced diet fully compliant with healthy schools, with vegetarian and Halal meals on the menu. Children should bring their dinner money for that week on a Monday morning or their first day back at school and hand it to their school teacher during registration.
School meals at present cost £2.40 per day or £12.00 per week. Please make sure your child's meal account is kept in credit when paying for school meals.
All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are eligible for a free school meal each day. Lunch options for these children are either a free school meal or home dinners. Packed lunches are NOT permitted.
Families who receive Income Support, Income Based Job Seekers Allowance, Employment & Support Allowance, Child Tax Credit (but not if you also receive Working Tax Credit), Guarantee Credit element of State Pension Credit or Support under Part 6 of the Immigration & Asylum Act 1999 are entitled to free meals.

WE ENCOURAGE ALL FAMILIES WHO MIGHT QUALIFY TO APPLY FOR FREE MEALS AS THE SCHOOL’S FUNDING IS DETERMINED BY THE NUMBER OF CHILDREN HAVING FREE MEALS.
Children may bring a packed lunch to school. The lunch must include a balanced diet containing sandwiches, fruit, yoghurt, etc. provided in a sandwich box. Crisps, chocolates and fizzy drinks are not permitted.
Dinner times are supervised by lunchtime supervisors who look after the children during these times.
