Children in years Reception to Year 2 are eligible for a free meal under the Government’s Universal Infants Free School Meal scheme. There is no need for you to apply for this, it’s automatic.
PLEASE NOTE: this is a different scheme to the support for families on a low income (commonly referred to as ‘Free School Meals’). If you are in receipt of benefits and think you might be entitled to additional support please ask for more information at the school office or use the link at the bottom of the page. It takes just a few minute to find out if you are eligible by using the Devon Citizens portal and you get an immediate response.
Children in years 3 to 6 need to purchase school lunches.
We offer healthy school lunches and meals are ordered according to the child’s choice from that day’s menu.
We encourage the children who have packed lunches, to choose healthy options and to keep crisps and chocolate biscuits to a minimum. We use positive praise and sometimes run a sticker reward scheme to remind children that healthy eating is an important life choice.
The children should have a bottle of water in the class, that they may drink during the day and squash and juice is for packed lunches only in order to protect growing teeth.
Free School Meals
Some families may be entitled to receive free school meals. Not only can your child have a hot meal at lunchtime, this also entitles you to help with other aspects of school life such as school trips and extra curricular activities. To find out more please visit the Devon County Council website:
