Procedure for School Meals


  • If your child would like to have school dinners they will have the opportunity to choose on a daily basis
  • At morning registration the children will select from a meat, vegetarian or packed lunch from home option (a school packed lunch option is available during the summer term). They will be given a corresponding wristband to hand in at lunchtime which ensures they are provided with the lunch they have chosen
  • Meals from September 2018 are £2.30 per day
  • Payment can be made in cash, by using our online payment system or by cheque made payable to Hampshire County Council (HCC). Please note that if using the online payment system there is a minimum payment of £2.30
  • Meals should be paid for on the day or in advance. A reminder will be sent out at the end of each week for any unpaid dinner money

If a child forgets to bring their packed lunch we will contact their parent to see if they are able to provide one. Alternatively we can provide a school meal.


Please contact the school office (01962 881311) should you have any further questions regarding school meals.


The cost per term, if your child was to have a meal daily, for the year 2018/19 are:

Autumn Term = £165.60; Spring Term = £135.70; Summer Term = £135.70.

Free School Meals (FSM)


All Year R, 1 and 2 children are now entitled to Free School Meals under the Universal Free School Meal Initiative. However, if eligible, parents should still register for Free School Meals (even if your child is receiving them under the Universal initiative) as this enables the school to receive significant additional funding to support those children.


Your child might be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:


  • Income Support
  • income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190 as assessed by HMRC; parents who are made redundant or start working less than 16 hours per week, may find their children are entitles to FSM for a limited period)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • All Universal Credit claimants are currently eligible for education benefits
