Currently all children in Years R, 1 and 2 are entitled to a free school lunch under the government's Universal Free School Meals (UFSM) scheme, this is separate to Free School Meals (FSM).
School lunches are available to all children. Once your child reaches Year 3 (and if they are not entitled to Free School Meals – please see explanation letter) the daily cost is £2.30; all school meals must be paid for a week in advance.
Parents can view and share the termly menu with their child and then book the meals for the week via ParentMail (please see booking instructions) payments are now on ParentMail under payments. If you think your child may be entitled to Free School Meals, even though initially they will receive UFSM, please apply at https://www.gov.uk/apply-free-school-meals/kent or by completing and returning the application form. Please contact the school office if you would like help with this process.
We are very fortunate that our school lunches are prepared on site by Caterlink. If your child has a food allergy, or a special dietary requirement, please complete to appropriate form and provide the necessary medical evidence.
