School Lunches

Our Early Years' lunch break is from 11.30am until 12.20pm. KS1 lunch break is from 11.55am until 12.50pm and our KS2 lunch is from 12.00pm until 12.50pm.

Children may have a packed lunch or a school meal. If you/your child chooses to bring a packed lunch, we encourage the children to make healthy choices and ask that packed lunches do not contain sweets or chocolate bars.  As a safety point, we request no glass bottles are brought into school. Please make us aware of any food allergies or intolerances.

Should your child choose to have a school lunch, they will have a choice of meals on a weekly basis. Our school meals are made and transferred over from Siddal Primary school. 

Lunches are £2.10 per day or £2.50 if ordered on an adhoc basis. We ask that lunches are paid for in advance at the school office.  Please contact the office to let us know of any alterations to a child's normal meal pattern.

Universal Free School Meals

Nick Clegg announced free school meals for every child in state funded infant schools. Every child in reception, year one and year two in state funded schools will receive a free school lunch from September 2014.  If you prefer your child to have a packed lunch, please inform the office.


*If you have a child in reception, year one or year two why is it important that you still apply for free school meals? *

Children who's families are eligible for free school meals attract additional funding for schools known as Pupil Premium. Pupil Premuim is £1300 per year per child and provides the school with additional money to support your child to achieve their potential.  It is extremely important that you apply if you think you are eligible as the school will receive £1300 for 6 years for your child.
