School Dinners

We are very proud of the high quality of the schools dinners we provide. 

Children can choose from either;

  • a hot meal (Halal options available) 
  • a vegetarian hot meal (which will be Halal)
  • a jacket potato filled with beans, cheese or tuna
  • a filled wrap

Children will eat in the dining hall but will only sit with the children from their class.

Please click here for the new menu.

School Dinners cost £2.45 a day which is payable in advance or on the day, ideally using the My Child at School (MCAS) app.   

All children in KS1 receive a free school meal as a result of the Universal Free School Meals initiative. However, if you meet any of the following criteria you must STILL apply to get the additional Pupil Premium funding that schools receive for those eligible.


Your child is eligible for Free School Meals if :-

  • You receive Family Income Support
  • You receive Income Based Job-Seekers Allowance
  • You receive Child Tax Credit
  • Your Child is supported by Part VI of the Immigration & Asylum Act 1999
  • You are a guardian (caring for a child) and you receive Pension Credit (under 'Guarantee Credit Element')


If you meet any of the above criteria click this online application form to apply. Alternatively you can call into the office for a paper copy.  We are more than happy to help you complete the forms, it takes less than 5 minutes!

Children who receive free school meals as a result of the above criteria receive 10% discount on school trips.

If your Child is in Nursery this still applies so please claim your free school meal funding.
