Universal School Meals

All children in Reception and Key Stage 1 are entitled to a free school meal under the Government’s Universal Free School Meal Scheme which comes into effect on September 1st 2014. Any parents who do not wish to take advantage of this scheme are able to send their child to school with a packed lunch.

Children in KS2 have the choice of either a hot dinner provided by catering staff, or a packed lunch brought from home. A menu is sent home termly so that you and your child can select the meals you wish to take.
