School Lunches

Pupils are able to bring their own packed lunch or buy a delicious lunch on-site for only £2.30 - see our Autumn/Spring/Summer/downloadable lunch menu.  Our meals are provided by Caterlink.

School lunches can be ordered for the children, in advance, by parents at home, via ParentMail. Please note the system will not allow you to choose a meal on the morning of that day.  If a meal has not been selected in advance the children can choose in the classroom on a daily basis.  

Please log onto your ParentMail account / ParentMail app to make payment.  We encourage  dinner payments to be made online, although cash is accepted.  Parents may pay for lunch on a daily, weekly, monthly or termly basis.  Lunch money payment is made directly to Caterlink.  Please note that your card statement will display 'Caterlink Ltd' for these payments. 

Payment may also be made by cheque (minimum £11.50 made payable to Caterlink) or in cash. Multiples of £2.30 should be always be paid.

It is a parent's responsibility to provide lunch for your child.  If your child orders a school lunch and a payment has not been received, a note will be sent home and it is expected that the payment will be made either the same day or the next morning.  The online payment facility will enable payments to made at any time of day or night.

The online facility will enable parents to keep track of their balance and also to see details of the meal choice of their child.

The collection of lunch money will be administrated by the school office staff on behalf of Caterlink. 

 

FREE SCHOOL MEALS

If you receive any of the following support payments your child may be entitled to receive free school meals: 

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190 – since 6 April 2010)
  • Working Tax Credit Run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit

Children who receive a qualifying benefit in their own right are also allowed to receive free school meals.

Children under the compulsory school age who are in full time education may also be entitled to receive free school meals. 

If you think your child is entitled to free school meals, you’ll need to apply at http://www.cloudforedu.org.uk/ofsm/rbwm/ 

Registering your child for Free School Meals means that the school receives the extra money and funding to support your child for a least six years even if you don't take up the free meal. Further information is available here

From September 2014 primary schools have a legal duty to offer all pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 a free school meal called a Universal Infant Meals. This should not be confused with registering pupils for Free School Meals if you are from a lower income family and receive benefits.
