All children eat together in the dining hall, creating a family atmosphere. Cooked meals, including a vegetarian option, are available and children are offered a choice of main courses and puddings. The main course needs to be ordered in advance. Fruit and water are always available.
Menus for school meals are sent out for each half term and we would ask that parents choose their children meals well in advance to help us to order them. The cost of a school meal is £2.10 per day or £10.50 per week and menus can be found at the bottom of the page. If your child is bringing in the money for school meals please ensure that the money is placed in a sealed envelope clearly marked with the child’s name and class so that they can hand it in to the School Office. All meals must be booked and paid for a week in advance. Please give as much notice as possible to the School Office if you want to change your child’s lunchtime arrangements.
Free school meals
If your family income is low your child may be entitled to a free school meal. It’s important to register for entitlement to free school meals, even if your child has a packed lunch – this is so we can receive additional funding (called the pupil premium) which we can use to help your child.
You can claim Free School Meals if you receive one of the following:
- Income Support
- Job Seekers Allowance Income Based
- Employment and Support Allowance Income Related
- Child Tax Credit with annual income of less than £16,190 (as assessed by Tax Credits)
- If you receive both Child Tax Credit and Working Tax Credit, you do not qualify for Free School Meals
- Guarantee Pension Credit
- Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
How do I claim?
Ask at the school office for a form and a leaflet or telephone 01472 323732. or you can call in to the Civic Offices, Knoll Street, Cleethorpes, N E Lincolnshire, DN35 8LN
If you do not want your child to have a school meal they can instead bring a packed lunch. This should be in a secure named container. Please put your child’s name on the outside to help them to identify it easily. A drink should be provided in a non breakable container. No sweets or fizzy drinks are allowed – instead, we encourage lots of fruit, vegetables and water.
