School Meals

There's so much to choose from on our new winter menu, including new children's favourites. All our lunches are served with seasonal vegetables or as much as your child wants from the salad bars, plus pudding, yoghurt or fresh fruit.

All our menus are planned to meet new tough standards for food in schools and are checked using a recognised programme to analyse nutrition. We also work with Lancashire Healthy Schools and support the Change 4 Life campaign. The result is a menu your child will enjoy and that will prepare them for learning in the afternoon.

 

Cost of school meals is £2.20 per day / £11.00 per week.

Toast is available at the cost of 20p per slice at morning break

 

Universal Free School Meals.

From September 2014 all pupils in reception, year one or year two in primary schools will be entitled to free school meals. 

For children in year three and above they could get free school meals if you get:

  • Income Support (IS)
  • Income Related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA-IR)
  • Income Based Jobseeker's Allowance (IB-JSA)
  • Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit and are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and your annual income, as assessed by the Inland Revenue, does not exceed £16,190
  • Working Tax Credit 'run on'- the payment you receive for a further four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit

If your child is starting reception, year one or year two in September 2014 and you get the above benefits, although your child is entitled to a free school meal it is essential that you register with LCC in order that the school can benefit from additional funding, called pupil premium

The pupil premium gives schools extra funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils. This is measured by the number of children eligible for free school meals based on the above qualifying benefits. It is worth over £1000 per pupil for the school your child attends.
