School Meals (including FSM)

Under the new government initiative, ALL children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes are entitled to a free hot lunch. We hope parents will join us in actively encouraging their child/ren to take a hot meal at lunch time. Menus are on a 3 week rota; copies are available to view or download via the link below. All school lunches must now be pre-ordered via ParentPay.

For pupils in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 a hot lunch costs £2.71 per day unless parent/s are eligible for Free School Meal Entitlement then their lunch will also be free; call into the school office for further details.   Are you entitled to claim free school lunches for your child/children?   

You can complete the form online at and following the link 'Schools and learning'

Use the link below for information on paying for school meals. All meals should be paid for in advance. The school office will issue you with a user name and password in order to pay for hot lunches online.
