Lunch Information

Children can bring packed lunches or pay for hot school meals which are eaten in the hall under supervision.  We inform and encourage parents to provide healthy food and leaflets are available to provide ideas.

Parents receiving the following are entitled to free school meals:

  •     Income Support,

  •     Employment Support Allowance (Income Related),

  •     Income based Job Seekers Allowance

  •     Guaranteed element of State Pension Credit

  •     Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

Application forms for free school meals are available from the office at the school or you can visit


Many of the children will need something to eat between breakfast and dinner.  As a Healthy School, it is school policy to ask parents not to provide sweets, biscuits and crisps. 

All KS1 children receive free fruit at break time under the School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme. KS2 children can choose to bring their own healthy snack in but we ask parents to adhere to the healthy food policy.
