Our School Meals
Our delicious, nutritionally balanced school meals are provided by Taylor Shaw. Every day children have the choice of two menu hot meals, a jacket potato and sandwich option. Each meal is served with pudding and side dishes. A salad bar, bread, fruit and yoghurt are available daily.
If your child has specific dietary requirements, Taylor Shaw ask that a dietary form is filled in to ensure they are able to meet their needs fully. Please contact the School Office if you require one.
More information about Taylor Shaw and our school meals can be found using the link at the bottom of the page.
Free School Meals
Free school meals are available to children whose parents are in receipt of one or more of the following benefits:
- income support
- income-based job seeker’s allowance
- income-related employment and support allowance
- child tax credit with an income of less than £16,190 and not in receipt of working tax credit
- support under part VI of the immigration and asylum act 1999
- guarantee element of state pension credit.
Where parents are entitled to working tax credit during a four week “run on” period immediately after their employment has ceased, or after they have started to work less than 16 hours per week, their children are entitled to free school meals.
Children who receive income support or income based jobseeker’s allowance in their own right are also entitled to free school meals.
Should you meet the above criteria, you can apply by using the application form in the useful downloads section.
Applications are usually processed the same day. If your child is entitled to free school meals you will receive a letter confirming the date when the meals will start. The school is also notified that your child is entitled to free school meals. In the meantime, you should continue to pay for free school meals until confirmation comes through. Schools may be able to arrange a reimbursement of any monies paid whilst your entitlement is being confirmed. If you are not entitled to free school meals you will be notified in writing.
Further information is available from the School Office.
