School Meals

 

Research carried out by the School Food Trust shows that children who ate a nutritionally balanced meal at lunch time were more alert and over three times more likely to be 'on-task' working with a teacher after lunch time, than those who didn't. 


All meals are cooked onsite by Mrs Mel Gideon and the catering team.  The school now offers an option of having a school meal on a Wednesday and Friday only.  Please contact the School Office for further information.  Menus are available to view on the Surrey Commerical Website: http://www2.myschoollunch.co.uk/surrey/


School meals are currently £2.20 a day (increasing to £2.25 in September 2017).  Payment is preferable via Scopay - where you can also see how much is owed for the half term.  Surrey County Council are requesting that school meals are paid in advance and the school is unable to provide meals if your account is more than 2 weeks in arrears. If you are experiencing difficulty in making payments please contact the school office in confidence.  

Free School Meals

 

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

  • Income Support

  • income-based Jobseekers 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)

  • Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit

  • Universal Credit

Children who get any of the above benefits in their own right (ie they get benefits payments directly, instead of through a parent or guardian) can also get free school meals.

Children under the compulsory school age who are in full time education may also be able to get free school meals
