There is a choice of hot school dinners or a sandwich bar or your child can bring a packed lunch from home. A menu for school meals is sent home, and also displayed at school and on the school website; this will rotate on a three weekly basis.
All school dinners, including the sandwich bar option, for children in KS1 are automatically provided free of charge. For children in KS2, the cost is £2.30 per school meal ordered and needs to be paid in advance. School meals can be paid for via Parentpay which is an online payment system and you can register for this by visiting www.parentpay.com .
Do you claim any of the following benefits?
• Income based Job Seekers Allowance
• Income based Employment and Support Allowance
• Child tax credit and no working tax credit with ahousehold income of less than £16,190
• Universal Credit - The ‘Guarantee’ element of State Pension Credit
• Support under Part VI of the Immigration andAsylum Act 1999
If so and your child is attending a Staffordshire school or sixth form (even if you don’t live in Staffordshire) you can claim free school meals. Even if you don’t want to take the meals, making a claim will help the school as they will receive some extra funding for each child registered for them.
Please ask at the school office if you require any assistance with this.
Lunch Boxes If your child is bringing a packed lunch to school please ensure that their name is written clearly on the outside of their lunchbox. Lunchtime drinks should be kept inside their lunchbox and be different from the water bottles kept inside the classroom. Please do not provide glass bottles or jars.
