School Meals

Lunchtime is an important part of the school day, where children enjoy a healthy meal together. We have our own cooks who prepare a two-course school dinner every day from fresh ingredients, along with freshly baked bread. Our emphasis is on promoting a healthy, varied diet. You can find further information on school lunches and sample menus at the North Yorkshire website, details of which are given in the ‘Useful Contacts’ section.

A high proportion of our pupils have school dinners every day, which can be paid for on a weekly or termly basis. For those children who prefer to bring in packed lunches, we still encourage these to be healthy and well balanced, and must follow the healthy packed lunch policy available on our website. All of our pupils, including those with packed lunches, eat together in our school hall.

Snacks

We encourage a healthy diet in our school, and do not allow our children to bring sweets onto our premises. As part of a Government Scheme, all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are provided with a fruit or vegetable snack for morning break. Children in other years are encouraged to bring in their own fruit or healthy snack from home.  

Free School Meals

Free school meals are available to children in EYFS and KS1 and for all whose parents are in receipt of one or more of the following benefits in KS2:

  • income support
  • income-based job seeker's allowance
  • income-related employment and support allowance
  • child tax credit with an income of less than £16,190 and not in receipt of working tax credit
  • support under part VI of the immigration and asylum act 1999
  • guarantee element of state pension credit.

Where parents are entitled to working tax credit during a four week "run on" period immediately after their employment has ceased, or after they have started to work less than 16 hours per week, their children are entitled to free school meals.

Children who receive income support or income based jobseeker's allowance in their own right are also entitled to free school meals.
