We pride ourselves in supplying our children with excellent food.  We feel that it is one of the most important parts of a child's life - to eat properly.


Eating a healthy diet enables a child to live life to the full and gives them a better performance all round, specifically helping them with their concentration levels - which in turn affects achievement.


We therefore encourage all of our children to have a school dinner.  We have a high uptake of school dinners at our school.  It is good to know that our children are getting a well balanced and healthy school meal.


You are welcome to come into school to have a school dinner with your child on any day, provided the meal has been booked with the school office by 9.30 a.m. on the day you required a school meal.  The cost for an adult two course meal is £3.20 and the cost of child's meal in KS2 is currently £2,20.

Please find herewith our Spring Summer 2018 Menu.pdf.  In addition to the main menu items there is also a salad bar and also a choice of Jacket Potato with either beans and/or cheese every day.


Breakfast Club

A breakfast club is provided by the school for all age groups from 8.30 a.m. to 9.00 a.m.

Items include: Milk shake 35p, Fruit Juice 30p, Hot chocolate 35p, Toast 25p, Cereal with milk 30p, glass of milk 20p.


Eligibility for Free School Meals

From September 2014, all children in Foundation Stage, Year 1 and Year 2 will receive a free, hot school meal.  This is a government initiative to support the health and well being of children in these year groups.

The introduction of Universal Free School Meals does not eliminate the need for families to apply for 'Free School Meals'.  For every child eligible for 'Free School Meals' the school will receive extra funding known as the Pupil Premium (currently £1320 per eligible child).  This funding would allow your child to attend after school clubs and our Breakfast Club free of charge and also allow the school to buy in additional activities and resources that support the development and educational attainment of your child.


If you think you may be eligible for 'Free School Meals' please answer the questions below:


  • Are you in receipt of income support/income based job seekers allowance or income related employment and support allowance? 
  • Are you entitled to child tax credit but NOT receiving working tax credit and your annual income must be below the threshold set by the government? (£16,190 but subject to change).
  • Are you receiving support under part VI of the Immigration ande Asylym Act 1999?
  • Are you in receipt of the guarantee credit element of pension credit?
  • Are you entitled to the 4 week run of working tax credit due to employment ending?

If you have answered YES to any of the above questions please complete the application form at East Riding of Yorkshire Council or alternatively complete the form at the top of this page and drop this in to the school office or post to the Benefits Section at PO Box 12, County Hall, Beverley, HU17 9BA.

Please be assured that the details of those children eligible for 'Free School Meals' are kept totally confidential.
