School Meals

  • All infant aged children (reception, year 1 and year 2) receive their midday school meal free of charge.
  • The Derbyshire Catering Service ensures this daily meal is of a high standard, being nutritionally balanced and sourced from local food suppliers.
  • Each day, we offer a choice of hot meat, hot vegetarian or cold sandwich platter.
  • Children can supply their own packed lunch but this must adhere to stringent healthy standards.
  • All children have an allocated half an hour time slot to eat their lunch, within a family dining approach.
  • We encourage healthy eating and trying of new foods.  We also insist on good table manners.
  • If there are any specific dietary requirements, there is a form to complete which must be supported by GP or Nutritionist advice. This can be accessed below.
  • The latest menu and other important information about the daily school meal can be found in the foyer leaflet rack or accessed here:

Free School Meals

If school meals are free for reception, year 1 and year 2 – why do I still need to apply?

All children in reception, year 1 and year 2 get free school meals, but if you receive one of the qualifying benefits you may also get help with:
• the cost of residential school trips
• travel costs to school
• school uniform costs
• music lessons at school
For every child registered for free school meals, schools receive a pupil premium payment each year. This will be used to help your child achieve their best at school.
