School dinners are cooked on the premises in our school kitchen.  A school dinner represents excellent value for money and currently costs £2.00 per day (£10 per week).

If you wish your child to stay for school meals please send the correct money in a named, sealed envelope clearly marked with the child’s name and class on, to the school office. If you are paying by cheque please make it payable to Derbyshire County Council.  Please ensure meals are paid for in advance, your co-operation with this matter will be greatly appreciated.

Free school meals

Free school meals are available to some children according to family income. It’s important to register for entitlement to free school meals, even if your child has a packed lunch – this is so we can receive additional funding (called the pupil premium) which we can use to help your child.
Children are entitled to Free School Meals if their parents, carers or guardians receive any of the following:

  • Income support
  • Income based job seekers allowance
  • Income related employment and support allowance
  • Guarantee pension credit
  • Child Tax Credit, but not Working Tax Credit, and an annual income lower than the limit set by the Government
  • Working Tax Credit Run On because you have ceased work or reduced your working hours to less than 16 per week

To find out if your child qualifies for free school meals, and for any help or advice, you could:

Chewing gum must not be brought into school.
