School Meals, Milk and Fruit

School Meals

The school has its own in-house catering team, lead by our Head Chef and Sous Chef.

Pupils enjoy an hour of relaxation each day when they have lunch and time for play. All pupils are expected to have a cooked school meal.

Lunch money for pupils in Year 3 to Year 6 must be paid in advance for either the half term or the full term. School meals cost £2.40 per day. Thanks to a government initiative (Universal Free School Meals), school meals for children in Reception to Year 2 are free of charge. However, the Mayor of London will be funding universal free school meal provision in state-funded London primary schools in the academic year 2023-24. Therefore, all primary-aged pupils (Reception – Year 6) will receive fully-funded school meals in 2023-24. This funding is being provided as an emergency cost of living support measure.

The government also provide free school meals for families in receipt of certain benefits. Registering for free school meals could raise an extra £1,320 for your child’s school to fund valuable additional support. Families eligible for free school meals should contact their Local Authority in order to make an application.

Milk and Fruit

Milk is available during the morning for pupils. It is free for pupils under 5 but there is a charge for 5-11 year olds. ‘Cool Milk’ supplies milk to this school. Parents can order and pay for milk directly via the ‘Cool Milk’ website www.coolmilk.com. Pupils in receipt of free school meals are also eligible for free milk which the school funds through the Pupil Premium grant.

Pupils in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and Key Stage 1 (KS1) receive a piece of fruit each day and Key Stage 2 (KS2) pupils may bring a piece of fruit from home to have at morning play.

Pupils attending after school clubs may bring a piece of fruit to enjoy ahead of their club session. Other snacks are not permitted.
