Payment for meals
All Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 children are entitled to free school meals under the Government's Universal Free School Meals Grant.

Parents are encouraged to apply for free meals even if you prefer your child to have a packed lunch, as this attracts valuable additional funding for the school.
If your child would prefer to bring a packed lunch please ensure that this contains no nuts as we have children in school with severe allergies. Any drinks sent in should be in a plastic container or carton. No glass or cans of fizzy drink should be brought into school. Please ensure that all lunch boxes are clearly named.
All food in lunch boxes should be eaten at lunch time. In addition, Key Stage 2 children may bring in a fruit snack for morning break. Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 children have fruit for morning break provided by the school.
