We do our best to cater for all dietary requirements, therefore please do not hesitate to contact the School Office to discuss in more detail.

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.


The cost of a child's meal in KS2 is currently £2.30.



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.


Children are entitled to receive free school meals if they or their parents or guardians receive any of the benefits below:


  • Universal Credit, provided they have an annual net income not exceeding £7,400 (£616.67 per month)
  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance
  • Support under Part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guarantee element of Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit, provided they are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190, as assessed by HMRC
  • Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit.

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.
