All EYFS and KS1 children receive free schools meals.
School meals are provided at a cost of £2.35 per day for children in KS2. Payment is made directly to the school via parent pay.
You also have a choice of supplying a healthy packed lunch from home.
It is important that we are aware of any dietary requirements/allergies for your child.  Our catering team can accommodate any special requirements and are happy to discuss this with you.
Your child may be eligible for benefits-related free school meals if you, or the child themselves in their own right, receives of any of the following benefits:
