School Meals

Here are the school meals provided in school this year. 

Healthy Packed Lunch

If your child brings a packed lunch to school please make sure that all food and drink is in a suitable container, clearly marked with the child's name. 

Drinks can be sent in an unbreakable container; please do not send  glass bottles and cans as these can cause accidents.  

We promote healthy eating in school with our school lunches and therefore encourage children bringing packed lunches to eat healthily too. Packed lunches should not include sweets, chocolate bars or fizzy drinks. Here is some guidance on how to create a healthy lunchbox...

Meal Arrangements

Children may stay for a school dinner or bring a packed lunch.  Our school lunches are healthy and good value.  Most dietary requirements can be met if we know about them.

Payments should be made online via the ParentPay website.  

If your child wishes to change from one type of meal to another, they can tell us from day to day.  

Your child may be entitled to Free School Meals  if you are receiving any of the following:

Income Support

Income Based Job Seekers Allowance 

Child Tax Credit (but you are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and your annual income is less than £16,190)

Support under Part v1 of the Immigation and Asylum Act 1999

Guarantee element of State Pension Credit.

If you require further information or an application form, please contact the Free School Meal Department at Civic Centre 1 North, High Street, Huddersfield, HD1 2NF, telephone 221928, or collect an application form from the school office.

Universal Free School Meals for Children in Key Stage 1 and Reception Classes

All children in reception and years 1 and 2 are entitled to a free meal at school.  This was introduced in September 2014. 

Please note : Universal Free School Meals do not automatically qualify your child for free milk. You may be entitled to this if you are on a low income and in receipt of the benefits listed above. An application should  be made to the Free School Meals Department.


Sweets and chewing gum are not allowed in school.  If you would like your child to have a snack at break time, please send a piece of fruit or they can choose from a range of healthy snacks and fruit juices on sale every morning break time.

As part of a Government initiative every child in out Early Years Unit and Key Stage 1 are given a different piece of fruit or vegetable free of charge at every afternoon break time.
