Chartwells provide our school dinners which at present cost £2.30 each and are payable in advance (parents/carers and able to ‘top up’ on SchoolMoney to cover the cost of meals taken). Currently children in our Nursery and years 3 to 6 pay for school dinners. We are delighted that, at this time, the Government will fund pupil meals for Reception, year 1 and year 2 pupils, a universal free school meal – UFSM. School secures funding for these UFSM meals by those children having a school dinner on our autumn and spring census days.
Your child may be eligible for Free School Meals. The number of children claiming free school meals can have a positive impact on our school funding through the Government’s Pupil Premium.
It’s eligibility that counts, so your child can still bring sandwiches from home and be registered for free school meals.
