School Meals

From November 2023 school meals will cost  £2.60 per day, £13.00 per week.

All dinner money should be paid on-line using School Money.

A weeks notice is required if your child wishes to change their meal arrangements. Changes can only take place from a Monday / start of a week.

Free school meals

Your child will be eligible for free school meals if you (or your partner) are in receipt of, either :

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • the guaranteed element of Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (but not Working Tax Credit) and your annual gross income (as assessed by HM Revenue and Customs) is not more than £16,190
  • Working Tax Credit 'run on' – paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit

Pupil Premium

Your child’s school will also receive additional funding if you are in receipt of a qualifying award listed above.  It is therefore important that you claim free school meals and the pupil premium even if your child does not wish to take a school meal or your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 and already receives an infant free school meal.
