Free School Meals
Pupils who are eligible for Free School Meals are sometimes worried that everyone will know and that they will look different. Credit for free school meals is automatically put onto the pupil’s account and they “pay” with their thumb print like everyone else.
If you are eligible for Free School Meals – or think that you might be – it is very important that you apply for them, even if you don’t think you will actually take them.
For every pupil who is registered for Free School Meals, the school is able to claim from a fund called Pupil Premium. This money is spent on improving the outcomes of eligible students.
Each day we provide meals of a good standard at a very reasonable cost to parents. Lunch is regarded as a very important part of the school day and all students are encouraged to have school lunch.
Snacks are available at break and lunchtime.
Vegetarian options are available daily.
The catering manager is pleased to meet any student’s special requirements after discussion with his/her parents.
Our restaurant operates a cashless catering system. Every pupil has a ParentPay account that can be credited with money to spend on food and drinks.
